About
It surprises me that more gymnasts (as in…some) haven’t started performing the wolf jump full in the 2017 quadrennium. With the 2017 code, this element was upgraded to a D, which is exceptionally valuable for a dance skill in and of itself, but coupled with the one-tenth bonus that could be gained from performing this from side position, it’s now possible to get an E out of this element that used to be a casual C that Nastia threw into her beam routine back when you needed 10 counting skills and had to throw in all kinds of filler.

Value
D (2017—)
C (—2016)
