At almost 30 years old, Sanne Wevers is debuting a highly difficult skill on the uneven bars.

The Dutch gymnast dazzled the sports fans by performing a new variation of the G rated release "Nabieva", a clear hip circle layout reverse hecht over high bar with half turn.



The Nabieva, which is named after Russian gymnast Tatiana Nabieva, is a toe-on to layout reverse hecht over high bar.




G is the highest rating for uneven bars skills.

Few days ago, Nabieva showed her disapproval of Belgium's Nina Derwael's performance on her signature skill, which went viral.

A fan sent Sanne Wevers' bars routine video to the Russian former elite gymnast asking for her opinion on the Dutch gymnast's performance on the Nabieva variation, and she approved of it.

Wevers is the reigning Olympic champion on balance beam. She was the winner of the bronze medal on the uneven bars at the 2015 European championships.
