About
In one of the many discrepancies between the code of points and the world of skill naming (you don’t say!), this skill is no longer officially attributed to Svetlana Khorkina in the code of points for whatever reason that may or may not exist and may or may not have anything to do with spite. It used to be attributed to Khorkina, and in common parlance you will primarily hear the skill referred to as the Khorkina, likely more often than the Markelov. Fight the power.
