Is this the first quintuple turn ever attempted in competition? Check it out after her 2nd tumbling pass (starts at 39 sec): Marta Pihan-Kulescza Floor - 2015 Europeans EF I'm not sure if the judges gave her credit for that (she really started falling out of that after the 3rd spin), but I do not know of ...
