About
Like its non-twisting sister, the gainer layout 1/1 was downgraded starting in 2017, a reaction to the growing abuse of this relatively simplistic-looking family of dismounts and affirmation of the Women’s Technical Committee’s mission to see as few different routine compositions as possible.

The gainer layout 1/1 is far from simple, but it is also nearly impossible to perform in an actual layout position or with any kind of execution non-ugliness. They’re all just piked, and we should stop pretending they’re not piked. The inherent sloppiness of the skill may also have contributed to its persona non grata status with the WTC.
