About
In evidence that there may not, in fact, be a vast international conspiracy against Svetlana Khorkina (WHAT HOW DARE YOU), the code has actually treated her somewhat charitably when it comes to this gainer dismount. When Khorkina got it named after herself, the skill was described as being taken either to the side or the end of the beam.

It has since been revised to allow only completion to the side of the beam, but the dismount has retained the Khorkina name despite Khorkina only ever performing it to the end of the beam.
