About
Among the most difficult skills available to be performed on floor exercise, the double layout with full twist was quite rare until about…2018?…because only the most powerful and acrobatically proficient would even attempt to perform it. But suddenly, it’s all the rage and growing.

Naming-wise, this skill probably should be known as the Tuzhikova because she got this skill named after herself in the code of points first, with Chusovitina then getting the specific full-out version named after herself in a subsequent edition. When the code decided that the difference between a full-in and a full-out no longer mattered for skill identification, it mushed both version into being the Chusovitina. For some reason. FIG things.
