About
While theoretically easier, and valued lower, than the double layout with full twist, the double layout with half twist took 20 years longer to make its way into gymnastics because of the difficulty of controlling the late 1/2 turn and the forward landing, a feat which only Simone Biles has mastered so far.

Value
G

Currently performed by
