How… What… OMG INCREDIBLE.

Carly Patterson, USA


What she is doing: Round-off back handspring to a double Arabian (an Arabian is a back flip with a 1/2 twist). All on four inches of wood. This dismount is actually named after her because she was the first to successfully perform it in a major competition.


Carly won the All-Around at the 2004 Olympic Games. This is her balance beam routine!

What she is doing: A back handspring into a double back flip in the pike position (the pike position is essentially the same position as when you sit with your legs straight out in front of you).


Peng Peng was a member of the team that granted Canada a spot in the 2012 Olympics but was unable to compete in London due to a severe knee injury. She is set to compete for UCLA once her ACL is completely healed. Here is her floor routine from 2012.

What she is doing: A switch ring leap. This leap is particularly difficult because the gymnast has to take their eyes off of the beam.


Anna won two bronze medals at the 2004 Olympics. Here is her balance beam routine from 2008 (she placed fourth)!
