How much is this uneven bars dismount skill worth?
How much is this bars dismount from China's Ma Yanhong 1984 Olympics bars routine worth today? Ma Yanhong 1984 Olympics EF Bars [youtube]3UKa8l9Wu4w [/youtube] "Perfect 10 routine with the Ma dismount." In the article "Podkopayeva headlines Gymnastics HOF class", http://www.app.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080209/SPORTS/80209028 (see also topic http://www.gymchat.com/messageboards/viewtopic.php?t=22768 ) it says: [quote]The 43-year-old Ma was China's first world champion, male or female, in gymnastics, winning gold on uneven bars during the 1979 world championships. During the 1984 Olympics, she tied for the gold medal on uneven bars with a dismount so difficult it is no longer seen. She now is a restaurateur and journalist in Beijing, which will host the Olympics later this year.[/quote] The bars are closer here than now.

It looks like she has to be really flexible to do her tkatchev because the bars are so close... here's another video with a dismount over the bar: Chelsea Otto 1999 American Classic Bars (GAYLORD 2!)
