About
The split leap is a pretty pointless element to perform on floor because it is only an A skill (like all the round-offs and back handsprings already in the routine) and has no use in combinations. It can, however, be performed as the first element in a passage of dance to fulfill the requirement in the event that a gymnast has no other options or is just too over it to live. Maybe that’s why it’s so popular among the Russian team.
