Valeri Liukin on the parallel bars at the 1991 world gymnastics championships. Many of the combinations that Liukin does here on parallel bars are now considered deductions (two of the same skills in a row, or repeating the same skill more than once). Still, his artistry and innovation on almost every event helped to push Mens Gymnastics to where it is today. Trivia! What skills are named after Liukin and can you explain what they are?
