Double Arabian 1/2
Double Arabian 1/2 out

The double Arabian with 1/2 turn is an exceptionally rare skill in elite floor routines, largely because it is criminally under-valued. For some reason, it is given the same value as the regular double Arabian despite the incontrovertible fact that it is a more difficult element.

There’s no incentive at all to do this skill when you’re not getting any reward for it compared to the regular double Arabian. Sigh. At least we’ll always have that time when Kat Grable did it.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
