Danusia Francis' Amazing Side Aerial on the Beam

UCLA Bruin Danusia Francis is known through out the NCAA for her sideways aerial on the beam.

In this lovely gif she is seen training the aerial over the pit. It is amazing. Danusia looks like she's about 5'8' with her beautiful extension. 

In the NCAA, which uses the Junior Olympic code, which is level ten, this skill is rated an E. In the FIG Women's Code Of Points, this is the same as your regular run of the mill aerial cartwheel on the beam,  a D. 

Lame. Who do I need to write to get that changed?
