This variation on the
Roll requires the gymnast to begin in a
standing with the arms up.
Perform the Forward Roll, but rather than tucking the
legs, keep them straddled.
As the feet return to the floor in the second half of the
roll, the use of hands on the floor is accepted to bring the
body back to a stand. Hands
must be placed in front of the body, between the legs, and then
raised overhead to complete the skill.
