About
Typically, gainer variations on elements tend to sprout up slightly after the basic version, but Khorkina got the gainer bhs 1/1 named after herself at the same meet where Kochetkova got the regular bhs 1/1 named after herself—1994 worlds.

Like the regular version, the gainer also technically only technically requires a 3/4 twist before hand support. The original version, however, shows that’s not really how it should be, as Khorkina completes pretty much the entire twist before hand support.

Value
