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 another gymnast who has attempted this in competition.  We’ve seen an increase in quad turns in the past several years – some of which are completed and some of which aren’t – but a quintuple is insane.  If you know of another gymnast who has competed a quintuple turn on floor, post a comment!

One final question….did your eyes catch it?
