Aliya Mustafina has competed a difficult acrobatic dance series which is worth massive 0.5 bonus in the 2017-2020 CoP.

The series is a switch leap with half turn (D) to Onodi (D) to a double turn with leg below horizontal (D). The switch leap to Onodi is worth 0.2 connection bonus and the onodi to double turn with leg below horizontal is worth 0.2. The series receives 0.1 series bonus.

The routine also included:

Wolf jump (A) to sissone (A) to side somi (D); no series bonus is rewarded for this acro dance series and that's because a series (acro or mixed) has to be at least worth B,B,C. 

A forward aerial (D) to back handspring (B); no bonus is rewarded, however, it fulfills the composition requirement of an acro series.

Side aerial (D) and switch ring leap (E).

A double back tuck dismount (D).

Mustafina is the 2013 World champion and 2016 European champion on balance beam. Despite that, she did not make a beam final at the two Olympics she competed in.

The routine took place at the qualification of the 2013 World championships.

The routine was judged according to 2017-2020 CoP.
