Triple-Twisting Double Tuck (Biles)



Floor exercise

Skill type

Known as
Biles II
Triple Double
Trip doub
Triple-twisting double tuck

Named after
Simone Biles (USA)

The latest entry in the family of floor tumbling elements is the previously unimaginable triple-twisting double tuck that Simone Biles got named after herself in the 2019 season.

It has been awarded an unprecedented J rating (worth a full point in difficulty), two tenths higher than the double-twisting double tuck—a rating that also highlighted the various hypocrisies in skill valuing because her simultaneously submitted beam dismount, the double-twisting double tuck, was given a value just one tenth higher than the full-twisting double tuck. So comparatively…none of it make any sense. Welcome to the code of points.
