Cast (gymnastics)

A cast is a basic skill on uneven bars,[citation needed] parallel bars, rings, or horizontal bar[1] in artistic gymnastics. From the front hang, a gymnast pikes (allowing the knee to touch the bar) and slides upwards to a handstand. Some gymnasts may perform the move with straddled legs.
