You cannot tell me that a man who can do a quad twist cannot do a nice, beautiful double Arabian. I won't believe you.
The side pass he did at Cottbus 2015 is a side flip with a full twist. It's either a "C" or "D" ( I forgot) and there's basically no way to have a landing deduction. A double Arabian is a "D" and it's a riskier landing. He does do 25+ twists in that set. I don't blame him too much for taking the easy way on one pass. That being said, I think about 90% of people involved in men's gymnastics would gladly say "goodbye" to that element group.
