Full twisting Shaposh – the “Seitz”?

Here are some very new news: If Elisabeth Seitz were able to compete yesterday at the first German trials for Worlds she would have performed a full twisting Shaposhnikova on bars (instead of the Def). Hopefully we will see her doing this skill, which isn’t in the Code yet, at the German Championships in two weeks.

These news come from the official website of the gymnastics association from Baden.

UPDATE: Elisabeth Seitz competed this skill (to be absolutely correct, it’s a full-twisting Maloney) in the all-around and event finals at the German Championships.
