About
Seemingly just another in the bevy of D-rated double turns that are all the rage in modern gymnastics to squeeze as much value out of dance elements as possible, the attitude turn actually takes a special place among the pantheon of turns because it has the word attitude in it. This makes gymnastics people think of ballet and then automatically bestow the garland of artistry on any gymnast who performs it.

It really is the best-looking of the double turns, when it is completed fully. So never.
