About
Among the most difficult skills available to be performed on floor exercise, the double layout with full twist is quite rare because only the most powerful and acrobatically proficient will even attempt to perform it. It is not referred to as the Chusovitina particularly often as Chuso (like Khorkina and Ray) is the victim of her own impressiveness. There are too many Chusovitina-named skills for the term Chusovitina to be all that descriptive or helpful.
