About
The double front in a tucked position is a challenging enough (and not particularly well-reward) prospect that only a handful of gymnasts elect to do it, a situation rendered even more extreme when it comes to the double front in piked position. The piked double front only entered the code of points in 2015 after Brenna Dowell was named to a farewell worlds team and could finally get the skill officially named after her.
