Additional information

General
NAMED ELEMENT
In December 2017 'The Derwael / Fenton' was added to the Code of Points for the uneven bars by the International Gymnastics Federation [FIG]. The element, first performed by her at the 2017 World Championships in Montreal, QC, Canada, involves a backward stalder with counter straddle reverse hecht over the high bar with half [180 degree] turn to hang in mixed L-grip and has a 'F' value. The element was also performed at the same championships by British gymnast Georgia-Mae Fenton, so the name of the element was shared between the two gymnasts. (fig-gymnastics.com, 15 Dec 2017)
