About
The double L is an increasingly popular element on floor for those looking to get D-score value out of dance elements instead of tumbling passes, though it is quite a risky composition choice. A turn in which both twists are not fully completed is liable to be downgraded to a B, a devastating blow to intended difficulty score, as the Russian team knows quite well. Whereas even if a tumbling pass is poor, it’s still likely to get full difficulty credit.

There is also an optional technique on this skill whereby the leg is bent and held through the two twists, which is horrible and somehow valued the same.

Value
D
