About
Mostly you’ll see this referred to as a DTY in print and a Yurchenko double full aloud (it always feels weird to say DTY aloud), though there is an underground gymternet movement to get people to call it the Baitova (to mimic the Amanar being called the Amanar). No luck. Not when there’s such an easy shorthand like DTY already available. The Amanar is the Amanar only because “Yurchenko 2 and a 5” is seven whole syllables and ain’t nobody got time for that.
