About
The 1.5-twisting double tuck dismount would seem like a natural progression for someone who finds the full-twisting version too easy and is looking for a little more value, but it’s advent is pretty surprising in its recency. Aliya Mustafina got this dismount named after herself in 2010, and as yet, no one else has found the extra tenth to be worth the introduction of this more difficult blind landing (apart from Simone Biles at camp that one time).
