Acrobatic Gymnastics Technical Update - March 2021
posted on 03/01/2021

Women’s Group Handstand Clarifications:

  • FIG Acro Newsletter #13 (December 2020)
    • Clarifies that a handstand with point of support in contact with the floor does NOT fulfill the handstand requirement rule. This will apply to all international track athletes.
  • All Development levels (level 8-10)
    • A handstand with point of support in contact with the floor DOES fulfill the handstand requirement rule.
  • Bonus Skills
    • Any handstand/shape on a point of support in contact with the floor will NOT count as a bonus element, just as they cannot count as a special requirement based on the December newsletter.
