About
One of the silliest composition choices in all of modern-day elite gymnastics, the double turn is still kicking somehow. It is valued at just B, and of all the B skills that could be used in a routine, it is among the riskiest because of the relative likelihood of falling out of it and incurring a significant deduction (or slightly shuffling and incurring a minor deduction) on a nothing skill when there are so many other Bs to choose from.

Value
B
