About
A trash skill invented by Vanessa Ferrari as a way of squeezing an extra tenth into her floor difficulty with another D-valued dance skill, the turning ring leap has caught on because of its undeniable value. It doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon in spite of the fact that, to date, it has gone well for grand total of zero gymnasts.
