Those are very cool. Although the bars one was competed in the olympics. But I still think its cool. But im floored about the ariel with a full twist down onto the beam. I have never ever seen anything like that before ! Thanks for sharing !

There was a girl at UNH who graduated last year I think, and she did the coolest UB dismount. She was on the high bar, and did a kip, except she brought her legs up so that she was almost sitting in a straddle on top of the high bar, then she bounced off and did a double twisting layout as her dismount. I'm sorry, I really can't explain it right, but it was really pretty to watch, and VERY unique!

That bar dismount is called a Tanac or Whipsalto. It is in the Code Of Points and is listed as a D element. Very cool dismount! :)
