US gymnast Karis German, who was born in 2004, posted a video of herself training a whip directly connected to a full-twisting double layout for her floor exercise routine.

The tumbling pass has never been competed before. It would be worth 0.2 in bonus. The whip is rated an A and the full twisting double layout is rated an H.

Gymnasts usually compete indirect connections when the main element is higher than a D rating, such as two whips indirectly connected to a full in pike.

Russian gymnast Anastasia Dmitrieva attempted to directly connect a whip (A) to a double layout (F) on floor in 2016.

German competed at the 2021 U.S. Gymnastics Championships, where she finished in sixth place on floor exercise.

There, she performed a double twisting double back tuck  and a full twisting double layout, both rated an H, as her first and second pass respectively.



German has also trained a full in tuck on balance beam, which is the second most difficult beam dismount after the double double.
