Gainer Dismount at the End of Beam

For this gainer dismount the gymnast takes off from a single front foot while the back foot swings forward helping to kick the knees and hips up to create the somersault rotation. To assure that the skill travels away enough to clear the beam, during the take-off the athlete aims to bring her center of mass forward so the dismount does not travel vertically. During the last step, the arms perform an underswing to help set up the skill.
