A variety of different sports and athletic pursuits involve people spinning/twisting/flipping in the air. Off the top of my head:
-freestyle ski jumping
-various skateboarding disciplines (such as halfpipe)
-various rollerblade disciplines
-various snowboarding disciplines (at least including halfpipe and slopestyle)
I’m sure I’m missing one or two.
Does anyone know in which context the most spins/flips/twists happen? To the extent that I watch any of these events, it seems like a lot of them cap out somewhere slightly more than three spins/flips. In figure skating, a triple is a very good jump, a quad is rare, I’ve never heard of a quint. In various of the “extreme” sports, you hear a lot about 720s or even 1080s (1080 being 3 full rotations), and sometimes 1260, but again, things seem to max out between 3 and 4 spins. Of course some of them mix in rotations around more than one axis…
