About
Olafsdottir submitted and successfully completed this element at the 2018 world championships—and also had the good fortune of not breaking her foot on the end of the beam AND getting pretty well rewarded for it at D value.

That rating is just one tenth lower than the Jurkowska-Kowalska, achieved at the same meet, despite that dismount having two twists in the straight position. Everything makes a lot of sense, is what I’m saying.

Value
D
