About
Elise Ray has three skills named after herself on the uneven bars (because of greedy), though this was the first one, so if we’re being pedantic about things, it’s the Ray I, while the toe-on Tkatchev is the Ray II, and the double-twisting double layout dismount is the Ray III.

The stalder shoot has had a rough go of things lately. From its soaring popularity in the 2008 and 2012 quads when it could be performed out of a bail handstand for bonus, it has seen its numbers dwindle drastically in recent years now that it’s no different from the rest of us.
