About
*Skill no longer exists

At the 2016 Olympics, Claudia Fragapane attempted to continue pushing to value of twisting dance elements by attempting a split leap with two twists. Immediately following the competition, this skill was dropped from the code due to being a wrenched-around terror and being anathema to the spirit of dance elements, with the WTC capping split elements at 1.5 twists.
