Skill type
Dismount

Known as
Full-twisting double tuck
Double tuck 1/1

About
One of only two beam dismounts rated a G (the Patterson being the other), the full-twisting double back is a nearly impossible prospect for all but the most talented tumblers and has remained extremely exclusive across the decades because of it. Others may be lured by the G value but will find that easily undermined by landing and (more extremely) chest position deductions. And injury.

Value
G

Currently performed by
Simone Biles (USA)
MyKayla Skinner (USA)
