The Gienger is a gymnastics skill performed on the uneven bars for women and the high bar for men. It is named after German gymnast Eberhard Gienger. The release move looks like a half-turn layout "flyaway" above the bar to catch the same bar.
The skill typically begins from a handstand followed by a swing backward and release after 3/4 of a revolution around the bar. The skill begins as a backward salto with the gymnast completing a 1/2 twist (360°) before regrasp on the same bar that was released. The Gienger can be done with either a piked (traditional) or stretched body form.
Gienger saltos are technically similar to Deltchev saltos, with the latter initiating the ((7 3/4 twist ))before initiating the arabian (which is also usually straddled rather than piked or stretched).
