US Alicia Sacramone attempted what is believed to be a never done before acrobatic combination on balance beam, a back handspring to a layout to two feet (E) to forward tuck (E), during Ghent World cup which was held in 2004.

It is worth mentioning that the 2017-2020 CoP only rewards connection bonuses to rebound combinations. Nevertheless, the acrobatic series would receive a 0.1 series bonus. 

Sacramone mounted the beam with a forward pike (E) to back tuck (C). She does a split leap with full turn which has been upgraded from a D to an E. She performs a switch leap (C) to a Johnson (C), worth 0.1 connection bonus.

She ends the routine with a two back handsprings (B) to a double back pike (E), worth 0.1 series bonus.

Sacramone made the balance beam final at 2010 World championships where finished in fifth place. She had the highest execution score in the final.
