Known as
Piked Gienger
Gienger
Not a Deltchev

Named for
Adrienn Nyeste (HUN) – straddle version (obsolete)

Spelling note: The i goes before the e, as in Wieber, not as in Weiler.
Remember the rule: “I before E, except after C, or when sounding like Y as in WHY ARE YOU DOING A WEILER.”

About
Until 2017, the code of points made no differentiation in value between the piked Gienger (a.k.a., the national bird of China) and the laid-out Gienger, so both skills would colloquially be referred to by the catch-all Gienger. This was helpful because even the better laid-out Giengers are still pretty piked and could be mistaken for piked Giengers.

The Gienger in straddle shape no longer exists as a skill (tell that to most of the people doing it in NCAA), but it is still named after Adrienn Nyeste in the code of points.

Value
