In this unique Balance Beam performance at the 1979 European title competition, Natalia Shaposhnikova did an amazing one arm handstand on the very tip of the balance beam. It was dangerous, but beautiful! She’ll go down in gymnastics history for incorporating this fantastic handstand into her beam routines.
In spite of advances in the amount of tumbling done in beam performances today, I have never seen anyone else dare to perform this move on the balance beam.
