今年8月、ブラジルで開催される「リオデジャネイロオリンピック」の選手として有望視されている、トリニダード・トバゴ女子体操選手のマリーサ・ディック(Marisa Dick)さん。

彼女が動画サイトYouTubeおよび自身のインスタグラムで披露した新技『The Dick』が、現在ネットを中心に注目を集めているみたい!


平均台までしずしずと進み、前後に開脚した状態で、ぴょーんと跳躍。脚を180度開いたままで、平均台の上へと着地。これが『The Dick』の全貌です。



Although this wasn't my best meet due to dislocating my rib the day before in training, I'm thankful I was able to push through and have a pretty great meet. The highlight of my experience at the 46th world championships in Glasgow was getting this skilled named after myself. At my first worlds in 2013 I witnessed @victoriamoors_ , @simonebiles , @silvia_cp17 and a few others achieve and submit a brand new skill into the FIG code of points, what a legacy. Theirs, mine and so many others names will forever be recognized in the gymnastics world. I would like to thank all my friends, family, supporters and most of all, all my coaches that have helped me get to where I am today. Without you guys pushing me and looking up to me I would not have made it this far. I love you guys❤️ Always set dreams and goals for yourself no matter how big or how hard they seem, if you want it bad enough you will achive it. My biggest goal since 2013 was to submit a skill in the FIG code of points 🔓 My biggest dream since I was old enough to know what it was is to go to the Olympic Games 🔒 #rio2016OlympicGames Congratulations to my teammate @themarttt , you had the best meet of your life and what a competition to do that at! You have grown and improved so much as an athlete even in the last few years that we have been teammates. We did this together! Behold….. The Dick

英グラスゴーで行われた体操の世界選手権において、連盟により公式に新技として認められたということですが、記者(私)は初めて『The Dick』を目にした時、つい「おーーー!!!」と感嘆の声が漏れてしまいましたよ。そして繰り返し繰り返し、観てしまいましたよ。

何度も眺めたくなる中毒性を呼び起こすのは、おそらくフォーム、技の仕上がりの完璧さ。オリンピックでも目にすることができるかもしれない注目の新技『The Dick』を、それではさっそくご覧になってみてくださいっ。
