About
The named skill Frolova is usually understood to refer to the switch leap 1/2 on floor, but both the 1/2 and the 1/1 twist are credited to her on the same line of the code of points.

The switch 1/1 is a favored method of attempting to squeeze a precious D-value dance element into a floor routine and get away with four tenths scot-free, though it is only occasionally rotated fully. The more common skill is the switch leap 5/8 + guilty little turn/fauxleap.

Value
D
