One of the few things I like about the last Elite COP was the short and long axis salto requirments.

However if that is considered too much of a burden for College gymnastics I think it is fine to not have a explict deduciton for the lack of a double salto (or double twist).

If you talk about the skill set you sould expect to see in an Event Finals competitor (never mind Champion) then yes, and it has been a virtual requirment (the historicaly record shows) for going on 20 years. Shouldn't that be the real queston?
