Arabian Cartwheel to Prone (Tsavdaridou)

Arabian cartwheel to prone


Floor exercise

Skill type
Hand support

Known as
Arabian cartwheel to front support/prone

Named After
Vasiliki Tsavdaridou (GRE)

Let’s be honest, this thing is just a belly flop. But a cool belly flop. Vasiliki Tsavdaridou may not have legendary status in terms of her results, but in terms of originality and developing the coolest skills to get named after herself, she should be ranked right up near the top.

Because the code of points is really good at its one job, it has screwed this element up entirely. In the 2017 update, the code mistakenly changed the skill that Tsavdaridou has named after herself from this one to the hop full to front support. Which is not correct. The hop full to front support used to be named after a nonspecific Martinez, but since the WTC apparently couldn’t figure out who that was, they threw her out entirely and gave the skill to Tsavdaridou for no reason. Two wrongs don’t make a right, WTC.
