The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Wolf Turn 1.5

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Wolf turn
Tuck turn
Hellish nonsense
Demon work

The wolf turn with 1.5 twists does, in fact, exist as a skill, but few will bother to perform it. The only point of the wolf turn is as a cynical tenth-grabber when performed as a double or more, so if you’re going to bother getting all the way down there, you might as well go for it.

Mostly the only times we see a wolf turn 1.5 is if someone started to do the wolf turn double and then had an oopsie.
