She connected her switch leap (C) to a layout step out (C), her forward aerial (D) to a leap (A) and a split leap fwd (A) to a side aerial (D), each connection is worth 0.1 connection bonus under the 2013-2016 CoP.

The split leap forward has been upgraded to a B in the 2017-2020 CoP.

She ended her routine with a double back pike (E). She scored a 14.500 and was third reserve the balance beam final. Tutya is the second female gymnast from Turkey to qualify to the Olympics. The first being Goksu Octas.
