    I have heard varying opinions on this stunt... at 1:30 in the link, the 3 front groups are assisted in a backwards roll to prone position



    Is this legal in Level 2? I was told by a safety judge that in order for it to be legal in Level 2, the flyers would need to stop in an inverted position before being lifted into prone.

    Thoughts?? Andre imrichhowboutu

    This would be legal. The inversion occurs on the performance surface. Then they go to non inverted without the flyer stopping in an inverted position off the surface.

    If you attempt it, be sure they don't stay inverted while in the prone position. That would be my only watch out.

    As long as she's not inverted in the stunt after the roll.
