French term or phrase: roue suedoise
This is featured in a newspaper article describing a street/circus performance. I just want to know if it is something more specific than a "Swedish wheel."

Swedish crown


Explanation:
This is a real guess: I know that the Swedes are known for their beautiful crowns for festive accasions, is it possible that you have a bad French translation of the "Couronne Suédoise"? From the little context that we have to go by, I would think of a cartwheel as it has been proposed, but could it be a crown?
