Mixing it up
The writer includes "half nelsons" along with "jackknifes and backflips" among types of "high dives." I suppose that, when wrestling is the subject, half gainers are among the holds. The article is called "Tickle and Flutter," by Terry Castle (London Review of Books, 3 July 2008). These "furious" dives are not just "half nelsons"; they are "great walloping half nelsons." I'm so impressed.
