Jeff Crockett’s double twisting Jaeger

Behold the Jaeger, a beautiful skill that can be performed on uneven bars or high bar, in it’s original form.

East German Bernd Jaeger, 1976 Olympics, High Bar:

Now behold the full-twisting Jaeger, a more difficult incarnation of the original, shown here by Damian Istria of Australia.

And now have a look at the double twisting Jaeger, performed by Jeff Crockett, a member of the University of Washington’s men’s team in 2006.

Awesome, no?
