About
Despite being universally known as the Shushunova (mostly because, what else are you going to call it? I’m tired already), the “Shushunova” disappeared from the named skills section in the code of points for some reason.

Perhaps mimicking its disappearance from elite gymnastics as very, very few gymnasts will bother to do skills ending in front support, especially when you can just fake a stag jump out of your tumbling pass for that sweet, sweet bonus. Not so long ago, these skills were all the rage.
