About
Currently the most loathed skill in all of gymnastics, the wolf turn is an uncertain- and inelegant-looking, fragile and wobbly garbage fire even in the best of circumstances, though gymnasts at this level tend to be able to pull off the single turn without being too much of an abomination. The real trouble comes when an extra turn (or more) is added.
