In the past month or so, I’ve acquired (crazy cheap via ebay) and scoured well over 100 back issues* of International Gymnast, ranging from 1980-2002, although mostly from 1990-2001. Hence, tons of updates have been made throughout the site.

*Of course, as any good gymn fan, I already had a large collection of back issues myself – I just don’t know where they are at the moment…

In the meantime, a provisional┬ácopy of the 2013-2016 FIG Code for WAG has been “leaked.” You can download a copy for yourself here. Plenty of interesting changes, including some adjustments in difficulty value for Named skills:

Vault

  • Chusovitina II (Hsp, layout Rudi) – lowered from 6.3 to 6.2
  • Produnova – 7.1 to 7.0
  • Amanar – 6.5 to 6.3
  • Cheng – 6.5 to 6.4

Bars

  • Shushunova – devalued from G to E

Floor

  • Popa jump – raised from B to C
  • Podkopayeva (Double front w. 1/2 out) – raised from E to F
  • Silivas (Double-double) + Chusovitina (Full-twisting double layout) – both raised from G to H!
