Cartwheel

 

The Cartwheel is one of the most widely known gymnastics skills.  It involves a half turn of the body, and a transfer of weight from feet to hands, to feet again. The gymnast should start in a lunge position, lean forward, and place each hand on the ground, while turning turn.  The legs remain in a straddle, a second turn is executed, and the gymnast brings the legs down, to arrive in a lunge, with the opposite leg in front.
