New Elements Submitted to the COP

Nine new elements have been submitted to the Women's Technical Committee for entrance in the Code of Points.

For the women, to get a skill named for you, it must be submitted to the technical committee and you must successfully complete the element at a World Championships or Olympic Games.

Here are the elements that have been submitted - keep in mind these have been submitted, they're not officially in the code yet.

Bars -

Tabea Alt -The "Alt" - proposed value - C

Description - A Zuchold Half -  Stoop through on high bar, dislocate and release with half (180 degree) turn in flight between the bars to catch low bar in hang


Tabea AltThe "Alt II" proposed value - C

Description -Dismount: Clear straddle underswing with forward tuck salto with half (180 degree) turn


The Derwael/Fenton (won't be named for either gymnast since Nina Derwael and Georgia Mae Fenton submitted it. Lame)

Proposed Value - F

Description -Backward stalder with counter straddle reverse hecht over the high bar with half (180 degree) turn to hang in mixed L-grip


Fan Yilin -The "Fan Yilin" Proposed Value D

Description - Dismount: From L-grip, swing backward, half (180 degree) turn to double salto backward tucked


Beam -

Aiko Sugihara - The "Sugihara" - Proposed Value - E

Description - Double (720 degree) turn with free leg held at 180 degree split throughout the turn


Aiko Sugihara - The "Sugihara II" - Proposed Value E

Description -Two and a half (900 degree) turn with free leg held at 180 degree split throughout the turn

Sanne Wevers - The "Wevers [1000]*" - Proposed Value D

Description -Two and a half (900 degree) turn with free leg position optional



Rebecca Andrade - "The Andrade"** - Proposed Value G

Description -Double backward salto in tuck position with one and a half (540 degree) twist

**Rebecca has withdrawn from competition at Worlds due to a knee injury. I could not find a video of this skill, so I used the drawing from the FIG press release. Since she won't compete this element, it won't be included in the CoP. I decided to include it anyway, mostly just to cover all my bases.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
