Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Kips are performed by both male and female gymnasts in a variety of apparatus including the parallel bars. Althought kips are considered to be one of the fundamental skills in gymnastics, research is scarse (Prassas, 1993). The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors that influence the score awarded to kips performed on the parallel bars by qualified judges.
