About
The Beukes has the distinction of being the only skill in the code of points named after a gymnast from Namibia. Beukes competed for Namibia in the 2005-2008 quadrennium and got this original mount (that has, to my knowledge, never been repeated by another gymnast) named after herself at the 2007 world championships.

Sadly, because 2007 was apparently 150 years ago, no footage exists of that moment because qualification video is a very new invention.
