A Bar Transition Only For Tall Gymnasts (GIF)

A Mukhina hecht was originated by Soviet Elena Mukhina when the bars were close to each other but now its impossible for a gymnast to do the transition unless she is a tall gymnast like Svetlana Khorkina.

  1. Funny how the Pak salto went out of fashion...

  2. interesting... haven't seen that is a couple of decades...
    How about this "new" release/transition; on the low bar facing the high bar - a free-hip hecht with a 1/2 twist to regrasp on the high bar- or if REALLY well done...ditch the twist - free hip hecht regrasp and drop into a stalder?

  3. What rated is this skill in CoP?
