While I watched some routines performed at the Massilia Cup last weekend, a somehow strange floor routine caught my eye. Lea Callon seems to be afraid of flicflacs – there is not a single one in her floor routine. She does all the tumbling straight out of the roundoff (double pike, 1.5+front piked, 2.0, double back) and still steps out of bounds at the dismount.
Click play or watch her on YouTube:
Do you need flics for more difficult tumbling?
In contrast, junior Cagla Akyol (GER) didn’t perform any roundoff in her floor routine from 2009.
