About
While the code of points pretended VERY STRICTLY for years that two athletes could not get the same skill named after them if they performed it for the first time at the same championship, that wasn’t exactly true all the time.

Li Ya and Carlotta Giovannini both performed the piked double Arabian at the 2006 World Championships (I chose the GIF of Li Ya because hers is better, fight me) and both have been listed in the code of points as the named originator of this skill ever since. See, that wasn’t so hard, was it? Unlike this skill, which is v hard. Goodbye.
