The Maloney is a gymnastics skill performed on the uneven bars by female gymnasts. It is a transition skill from the low bar to the high bar. When performing, the gymnast places her toes on the low bar and performs a sole circle before releasing from the bar into flight and catching the high bar. The skill is named after the first gymnast to perform it at a World Championships or Olympic Games, Kristen Maloney.
