About
Beginning in around 2009 with the increased valuing of release elements (as opposed to pirouettes) in bonus connections, women’s gymnastics experienced a run on the bank for new Tkatchev variations to get named and perform for F value and connect into other releases to rack up that D-score. Shang Chunsong got this one named after herself at the 2013 world championship, and it has been piked up by several other bars daredevils since.
