About
A skill ahead of its time, the Hindorff was the first of any of the Tkatchev variations to be introduced in women’s gymnastics, and Hindorff and Tkatchev were contemporaries in their modernizing of bars work through release elements. Officially, the regular Tkatchev is credited to Davydova in the women’s code of points, but her performance of it came a couple years after Hindorff initiated the naming of reverse hechts on the uneven bars with the clear-hip version. Should Hindorff, when referring specifically to women’s gymnastics, be used as the base term for all reverse-hecht variations instead of the male Tkatchev?
