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.
