Need help getting a gyroscope rotation to increment a counter

Project Background: I’m building a device that counts swimmer’s laps after a tumble turn (forward rotation)

I need to develop some code that triggers a counter to increment with each full rotation. As far as I can tell the device only needs to detect rotation along one axis.

I’m using the adafruit 9-DOF Absolute Orientation IMU Fusion Breakout - BNO055.

I’m pretty new to Arduino, so I don’t even know where to start really, if someone could point me in the right direction it’d be a massive help.

Below is example code for reading the gyro in realtime.

#include <Wire.h>
#include <Adafruit_Sensor.h>
#include <Adafruit_BNO055.h>
#include <utility/imumaths.h>

/* This driver uses the Adafruit unified sensor library (Adafruit_Sensor),
   which provides a common 'type' for sensor data and some helper functions.

   To use this driver you will also need to download the Adafruit_Sensor
   library and include it in your libraries folder.

   You should also assign a unique ID to this sensor for use with
   the Adafruit Sensor API so that you can identify this particular
   sensor in any data logs, etc.  To assign a unique ID, simply
   provide an appropriate value in the constructor below (12345
   is used by default in this example).

   Connections
   ===========
   Connect SCL to analog 5
   Connect SDA to analog 4
   Connect VDD to 3-5V DC
   Connect GROUND to common ground

   History
   =======
   2015/MAR/03  - First release (KTOWN)
   2015/AUG/27  - Added calibration and system status helpers
