About
Yes, Chusovitina has a skill named after her even on bars. Because Chusovitina. The hop 1/1 is oddly rare in modern gymnastics considering its incredibly useful D value, though presumably the difficulty of finishing it directly in handstand and the fear of major late-finish deductions frightens gymnasts away from using it, say, in connection between a Shaposhnikova and a Pak.

Despite both hands leaving the bar during the skill, it does not qualify as a flight element.

Value
D
