2016 balance beam Olympic champion Sanne Wevers keeps impressing, showing off difficult new skills in training.

This week she showed off a brand new balance beam mount: a round-off to an Onodi.

The new mount looks very solid, but is only the last one in a series of balance beam mounts Wevers has performed. These include an easier back-handsping, as well as a more difficult 3/4 back-handsping mount.

Last year at the Olympic Games, Wevers became the first Dutch gymnast to win an individual gold medal on balance beam. This year she won silver on beam at the Melbourne World Cup and was fifth on beam at the European Championships. She aims to compete at the World Championships in Montreal, Canada, next October.
