standing 1/1 on Beam

One of those IMPOSSIBLE skills.

Torque twisting from the Beam means lateral travel. Therefore gymnasts who torque need to jump enough sideways to offset that lateral travel.

Judges are often too severe in evaluating this skill. Landing with the trunk angle at 45 degrees would be optimal in my opinion. While piloting in the landing, the gymnast could adjust from 45 as needed to STICK a solid landing.

YET judges are quick to jump to “chest low” deduction.
