Belarus' gymnast Svetlana Tarasevich competed a combination on floor exercise which most of us thought did not exist.  

She directly connected her whip (B) to her full in tuck (E), worth 0.2 connection bonus. She also performed a double twisting forward layout (D) to a forward tuck (A), worth 0.1 connection bonus.

Her third pass was a forward twisting tuck (B) indirectly connected to a whip (B) to a double twisting back layout. She lands completely out of the bounds which incurs 0.3 deduction. 

Svetlana competed at 1994 and 1995 World championships, and finished with her team in 6th and 8th place respectively. At the 1996 Olympics, she finished with her team in 6th place. 

Svetlana's best individual result at a major international competition was placing fourth on uneven bars at 1994 European championships.

Please note that the routine was judged according to 2017-2020 CoP
