MyKayla Skinner's Double Double Layout...

Victoria Moors debuted her double double layout this week, but she's already been beaten to the punch.
However, it's still a race to see whom the skill will be named after.

USA Senior, MyKayla Skinner, a senior elite gymnast from Gilbert, Arizona debuted the same skill at the Fiesta Bowl this February. Her mom, Cris, posted this video on YouTube of her double double layout.

MyKayla just turned senior in 2012. She missed sharing a birthday with me by a whole day. She just missed out on making the Olympic Team to London as she wasn't selected for the trials. According to the Wikipedia entry I pulled up, she placed third on the vault at Nationals in St. Louis last year. She's already committed to the University of Utah for 2015.

Will she make the Worlds team this year and have that skill named the Skinner or will Victoria Moors beat her to it?

We shall see.
