About
In more fun with complicated naming, the Stalder Shaposhnikova is commonly known as the Chow, Amy Chow having famously performed it at the 1996 Olympics. However, the skill is no longer officially credited to Chow—or anyone—in the current code of points for reasons that remain unexplained. This is one of the instances where the gymnastics community has overruled the code and decided that this skill is going to be the Chow, even if not technically endorsed as such anymore. Fight the power.
