About
An acceptable middle ground among dance elements on floor, the switch 1/2 is worth enough to be valuable for any gymnast to count in the difficulty score, yet not so complicated as to provoke an epidemic of wrenched-around, under-rotated efforts that might risk downgrade or—worse—ugliness. As such, many, many gymnasts opt to perform the switch 1/2.

Value

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
