D241   /   Shérif Jacques   /   47 ans   /   Prévôtois   /   Shérif de la braderie Prévôtoise et Fiduciaire

Un évènement hors norme se déroule à Moutier ce weekend : la braderie prévôtoise ! Je n’y avais plus mis les pieds depuis 4 ans. Pour fêter l’occasion, j’interviewe le président de l’événement, j’ai nommé le Shérif Jacques. Je le trouve attablé avec son comité, dégustant un steak de cheval.

Le thème de 2015 est le Far West. « Le but de la braderie est que les gamins aient la banane » résume Jacques. « Nous nous investissons à 110% pour rendre tout le monde heureux. Seuls deux facteurs sont imprévisibles : les bagarres et la météo. Jusqu’à présent, il n’y a pas eu de bagarre et la météo est magnifique. On peut parler d’un bon cru ! » ajoute-t-il. Cela fait 10 ans qu’il participe à l’organisation de cette braderie.

Il est né ici et a fait un apprentissage d’employé de commerce à Delémont. Il est ensuite parti trois ans et demi à Zurich, puis à Bâle, apprendre le Suisse allemand. Ses collègues m’apprennent de nombreux ragots à son sujet et nous perdons le fil rouge de l’interview. On nous apporte du vin rouge ; tout va pour le mieux. En riant, Jacques me propose d’aller faire l’interview ailleurs, puis enchaîne.

En revenant à Moutier, il a trouvé un emploi dans l’une des quatre fiduciaires à Moutier, chez René Brand. Lorsqu’il a eu 27 ans, grâce à l’aide financière de sa famille, Jacques a repris la boîte.

Lorsqu’en 2005, alors qu’il était membre de la commission économique de la braderie, Jacques s’est rendu compte que l’envie des anciens organisateurs commençait à s’essouffler, il a repris les rênes de l’événement. Il a gardé les principes de base : ne pas privatiser la braderie et ne pas lui donner un but lucratif, mais maintenir le bénévolat et vouloir simplement rendre les gens heureux. « Le plus important, c’est d’être bien entouré » souligne-t-il. « Ce matin, en conférence de presse, j’ai annoncé que la configuration du comité n’allait pas changer l’année prochaine. Je n’ai demandé l’avis de personne ; ils n’ont pas le choix » m’apprend-il en riant. Ses amis à table semblent parfaitement accepter cette nouvelle.

Je lui demande quelle est la plus belle expérience qu’il a vécu dans le cadre de la braderie. « De voir 3500 personnes venir ici pour observer des vaches qui broutaient de l’herbe » me répond-il. « Ça c’était le top ! Réussir à faire déplacer autant de monde pour cela, c’était hors norme ! » Je rappelle pour ceux qui n’y étaient pas qu’il devait y avoir un combat de reines, mais que les bêtes avaient refusé de se battre.  

Le pire est arrivé il y a deux ans, « lorsqu’un abruti a donné des coups de couteaux sans raison. C’était horrible et incompréhensible » se souvient Jacques.

Aux lecteurs, il conseille d’être toujours positif et souriant et de regarder vers l’avant.

anonymous asked:

What skills qualify for each composition requirement in the COP?

I’ll do some of the most common skills as examples because like a million skills qualify for all.

VAULT

  • no CR obvs

BARS

  • low to high and high to low transition: shaposh, toe shoot, van Leeuwen, pak, bail
  • same bar flight: Tkachev, Gienger, Jaeger
  • non-flight element w/360 turn: giant full, toe full, any full pirouette (or more than a full, like a Healy/Ling/Ono/Rybalko/etc)
  • different grips: backward skills are literally almost any swing skill you see on bars like a giant or stalder or toe on or whatever; forward skills are anything done in like reverse or L grip, many will either do something like a front giant full or something even more basic, some do a more advanced Endo or Weiler…also like, if they do a Jaeger or double front or something, they can count the blind change or hop change that comes before that skill since it’s still a grip change even if it’s not like, a super-highly valued swinging element

BEAM

  • two dance element connection, one must be 180: this can be a leap + leap, leap + jump, jump + jump, or jump/leap + spin, a common simple one is a split jump to sissone
  • turn on one foot: self-explanatory, at least a full but can be anything higher than that like a double or triple, and can be in any shape (pirouette style, L turn, Y turn, attitude, etc)
  • acro series: 2+ acro skills combined, can be a basic bhs + loso, a triple series like a bhs + bhs + layout, or something more intricate like a side aerial + loso + loso or side aerial + onodi or literally any combo of skills from the acro section of the COP
  • acro elements front and back: kinda self-explanatory? some common back elements are layouts, tuck full, bhs, etc, and some common front elements are front aerial, front tuck, front pike

FLOOR

  • two dance element connection, one must be 180: same as beam, but you’ll see more advanced combos here, like a switch ring to switch half or something, and they don’t have to be directly connected (which is why you’ll see little running prance kinda steps between them)
  • front and back elements: must be in the actual tumbling run, front would be a double front, arabian double front, punch front tuck/pike/layout, back would be a double back, triple full, double double, etc.
  • double saltos: double tuck, double layout, double front, arabian, any skill with two flips
  • salto w/minimum one full twist: double double, punch front full, triple full, full-in, any skill with at least one twist

David training a stalder layout tkatchev! I think this would be a cool skill for him!

anonymous asked:

What do ppl mean when they say someone's inbar stalders are bad?

I mean I can’t speak for everyone who has ever said that but they probably mean that their pike position is pretty open so their feet barely clear the bar. Like here’s Madison Kocian and Yao Jinnan performing the same skill (Komova II) and Kocian’s feet are almost touching the bar while Yao’s legs are basically pressed against her face, well below the bar:

Komova and Varinska do inbars similar to how Yao does them and a lot of people prefer how that looks.

*And before you send me idiotic anons I’m not “dragging” Madison, I’m just illustrating how the way she and Yao do the same skill objectively looks different and these pics were from a similar angle.

My 2013-2016 aesthetic:

Angry Kyla Ross on beam
Lari’s triple
Jinnan’s pirouettes
Oleg’s smirk
Simone’s full twisting double layout
Guilia’s leaps
Aliya’s handstands
Norah full beam
Eythora’s facial expressions
Laurie’s stalder
Flavia’s smile.

PART 2/5: UNEVEN BARS

**********************************

The first rule of Bars Club is…

…just kidding, let’s talk about Bars Club because for Queen Aliya, it looks something like this:

The real first rule of bars club is HIT YOUR HANDSTANDS!

It may first look like this…

…but you will end up like this.

So seriously, hit those handstands!!!

To really make your mark in gymnastics history, it’s best to carve your name to the CoP…

…do it with a dismount…

…because dismounts always get the repeated slow motion replays and the commentators have to say your name like 100 times during it…

…not to mention that even when somebody else does it they still have to say your name.

Since Russians pretty much live on shap ½ transitions, have 2 of them in your routine to stay above the peasants.

Oh…and being tall and Russian can be a bit of a nuisance…

…so forget giants all together and show off your awesome handstands by doing difficult stalder work…

…and L grip pirouettes? No one can tell that shit apart anyway so keep your shoulders intact and just fly…

(could not fit the stalder full in the gif)

…and when it comes to shoulders, either try to fix them with alternative methods, or get a German passport.

Never, ever, give up, because European Championships may look like this…

…but the Olympics a few months later will look like this…

…if you HIT THOSE HANDSTANDS.

It’s also good to hit your poses, if your face is pretty enough during transitions people won’t look at the feet…

…and don’t get chalk in your eyes, that could really ruin your makeup.

Lastly, steer clear of the mats…

…and just stick it.

Take it from the uneven bars Olympic Champion.

One of the most decorated gymnasts of all time with twenty-seven World and Olympic medals combined, Svetlana Khorkina also has the most eponymous skills, with a total of eight skills named after her with at least one on each apparatus. Considered tall for a gymnast and with proportionally long legs and a lean body type, Svetlana’s life long coach Boris Pilkin helped her to innovate new skills that suited her body type and gymnastics style.
