Dismount

1/2 turn to double tuck

About
The Fan is one of the newest dismounts in the code of points, and came about…sort of by accident? In 2017, the code of points upgraded a similar dismount, the front 1/2 into back tuck, from a D to an E. So then people were like, “Hey, we should start doing that dismount.” And then the WTC went, “Boo. I hate you and Fan Yilin in particular, so this is a different skill that’s worse, and you’re going to have to submit separately.”

Thus, the Fan dismount was born at worlds in 2017, then valued at a D. The WTC later decided they hated this dismount so much that it would become a C starting in 2022.

Value
C (2022-)
D (2017-2021)
