About
Yes, Chusovitina has a skill named after her even on bars. Because Chusovitina. The hop 1/1 is considered its own element separate from the giant full where the gymnast is always in contact with the bar at some point (also because it’s a lot harder). The hop 1/1 is somewhat surprisingly rare in modern gymnastics considering its incredibly useful D value, though presumably the difficulty of finishing it directly in handstand contributes to that.

Of note, even though both hands do leave the bar during the performance of this skill, it does not qualify as an element with flight for the purpose of awarding connection value.

Value
D
