About
An aggressively appealing dismount because of its F value (a whole two letters higher than the back 2.5), the triple yet remains a somewhat rare choice not only because of its difficulty but because of the likelihood of under-rotating it by a quarter twist—as 99% of the gymnasts who perform it do—and at best getting downgraded to the lowly 2.5 or at worst getting injured. Have fun everyone!
