Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Double layout 1/1
DLO 1/1
Full-twisting double layout

Rated just one letter above the regular double layout, the DLO 1/1 is a risky proposition for those who aren’t completely confident in their sticking ability. For most gymnasts, the likelihood of incurring a landing deduction or a body shape deduction for piking the second salto (and probably both) is so high that it obliterates the measly one tenth gained by performing this dismount instead of the DLO. For most gymnasts, this upgrade ends up lowering the final score. Only a select few are able to perform the DLO 1/1 well enough to make it code-healthy.
