Oh sorry, when I first saw the title I instantly thought of tap-dancing because my little sis does tap and they do "double backs" lol.

Anyways, I just read that it has been upgraded from D to C. Whatever that means, but appreantly it is a BIG deal.

Actually, you've got that reversed: it just got upgraded from a C to a D in the new FIG code.

In the USA JO code, it was already a D.

EDIT: I'm assuming you're referring to the women's code. In the men's code, it's a C, but any double salto skill gets .1 bonus in men's JO.

Did you mean in JO or in FIG. In FIG it is a C.

I'm pretty sure it is a D in elite now. Maybe they haven't made the changes in the code yet.
