Games 2012 Obstacle course 1st obstacle: what is that move called?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUhPi04nL9U

44 second mark.

Circling backward over the bar starting from the ground. I'd like to learn how to do that move but I don't know what it's called. Surely it has a name, possibly from gymnastics.

I don't know if it has an official gymnastics name, but in the Marine Corps it's referred to as a college boy roll. Basically you jump into the pullup and try to pull the bar to your waistband at the same time you throw your legs back and over the bar.

EDIT: Here's an instructional video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbwziqKlEC0 WFS

I always called them hip overs.
On rings it's call a "backwards roll to support".

Yeah it's not remotely difficult for a gymnast, just as a muscleup doesn't even register on the difficulty scale for gymnasts. Obviously a good gymnast will be able to do it from a dead hang, slow and controlled like in Sean's video, but if you're doing the O-course for time you're going to be hitting it at a run and swinging over as fast as possible. There's not really any injury risk there....I've never seen anyone get hurt on that obstacle unless they let go of the bar early, and it's not like you're doing them for 50 reps at a time.
