About
“Shushunova” has become a catch-all to refer to jumping skills that end in front support, so you will occasionally hear this skill referred to as a Shushunova full, though that is its own, independent skill. The Shushunova must involve a straddle position being achieved before front support, so in the case of an element like this, it’s just a full turn before the support, so it’s not a Shushunova-style element. It’s just a nameless, unperformed peasant.
