US gymnast and trickster galore, MyKayla Skinner has posted a video of herself training a new floor combination.

MyKayla, who recently won the floor title at the City of Jesolo Trophy, is shown training a 1 1/2 twist step out to a triple full on floor. It's an indirect floor connection that gives her a hefty 0.20 in connection values, which aren't easy to come by with the ridiculously stringent floor code. MyKayla's floor routine is already stacked with difficulty from her double double layout and her double double tuck.

Makes you dizzy just thinking about all that twisting and flipping in one routine.
