About
While the illusion on beam holds some appeal because of its D value, the B-rated illusion on floor is not able to say the same and is predominately used by gymnasts with routines in the style of Thorsdottir (above) that take advantage of an opportunity for turn connections. The illusion is almost never performed by itself on floor and is rather discouraged, as made evident by the elimination of the double illusion turn for the 2017 code.

Value
B

Currently performed by
Georgia-Rose Brown (AUS)

 

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
