Split Side 3/4 (Csillag)

Split side 3:4 (Csillag)


Floor exercise

Skill type

Known as
Split side full
Split side 3/4, 1/4 to land

Named After
Tunde Csillag (HUN)

This skill is a bizarre little duckling. When it was originally named after Csillag at the 2010 world championships, it was described as a split side leap with full turn. Pretty straightforward, despite the fact that you can see above that she’s attempting to get credit for an additional half turn in the leap. Looks like that didn’t work out for her?

Over time, the description of the skill has changed from a split side full to a split side 3/4 with an additional 1/4 turn to land, adding up to be a full turn. That is basically what Csillag does—in that she performs 3/4 of a turn before hitting that side split position—but it’s not how the skill was originally described.
