This is a fair example of back handspring landing on two feet to a back tuck dismount. Gymnasts must know how to perform the combination on floor, and also how to perform a beam standing back handspring to two feet and rebound. The combination is trained first on a low beam with folded mats on the sides, and the apparatus end pointing to a loose foam pit. Notice how the feet are placed slightly in front of the other for the back tuck off. Placing the feet this way allow gymnasts more room to punch, and is safer too.
