Definition: Pike

Pike: A gymnastics body position used in jumps and saltos with the body bent forward at the waist with the legs kept straight. Judges look for more than a 90 degree bend at the hips for correct execution. Somersaulting skills done in pike position are more difficult than the ones in tuck position and easier than saltos done in layout position.
