About
Like all 1.5 pirouettes, the giant 1.5 is an almost nonexistent skill in modern gymnastics because the penalties for a late finish on pirouettes are so high (and basically unavoidable on a 1.5) that it could never be worth the value. The giant 1.5 sort of had its last heyday in the 2006-2008 code when gymnasts had to count 10 skills and just needed to cram in as much as possible, but since then, it hasn’t been worth it.
