Has anyone ever had a kid whip their head on a double lay dismount landing, so that it looks like whiplash as they hit the ground? Gymnast says it doesn't hurt, but it doesn't look healthy to me. She does the "tight arch" style of flipping.

On the landing? No. I'm having a hard time imagining this. Do you have any video?
