About
I am frequently surprised by the number of people who continue to elect to perform a triple turn on floor. At just a C, it seems a total deduction trap with all the possible deductions for leaning out of it and the risk of not completing the full three turns at all.

But for many at the very top level these days, the triple turn does simply seem to be the placeholder or backup plan for a quad turn—when you inevitably don’t get all four turns around, you can at least get credit for something. Which makes sense.
