Thats funny, I was at that meet (WOGA Classic), and it's at my high school.

The lady you see shooting pictures on that stand thing, I work for them taking pictures. I didn't back then, but I was in the stands photographing

If that girl doesn't do a jam to handstand on bars then she is crazy...she basically just did a jam to inverted handstand on beam. Very impressive!!

I remember being at that meet (I can actually see myself in the video :p). That girl was pretty neat to watch. I remember that skill quite well, I have a photo somewhere. The skill is quite impressive.

I have a girl working germans on bars and she is so working that skill today during practice.

Hi I am new here. I have seen this video and the press to handstand is called a Manna. Its a Yoga Inversion posture and is usually only done by men! Kudos to this girl for being physically able to do this, as its damn near impossible from a biomechanical point of view!

Impressed! ^_^ and I did that once when
I was doing something with my friend and
as soon as I knew it I was in an ambulance
having dislocated shoulders!

the strength hold part is a manna, but she's actually doing a mana press through dislocate.
