Ivana Hong vs. Elvire Teza

This vid compares a skill they both do.  It’s a German Giant to Tkatchev.  Teza gets a lot more height than Ivana.  Actually, during the 2007 nationals, Tim Dagget slipped some actual educational content into the broadcast by saying Hong was really doing “just a straddle back”.  It’s actually a straddle cut backwards but that was close.   Martha was able to get Hong’s technique for this skill valued the same as Teza’s technique but she couldn’t make the judges ignore the amplitude deductions.  So Hong no longer does her german giants to straddle cut release skill.  

Ivana’s double new double front on floor is really great.  She keeps her knees together.
