Buckeye Gymnastics uploaded a video on their Instagram account that shows one of their gymnasts doing a sextuple wolf turn on balance beam.
The gymnast is Shania Adams who turned senior this year but did not make the US senior national team.

Adams is shown easily doing the first five turns while struggling to complete the sixth one.

In the code of points, turns are capped at E rating. The most difficult wolf turn in the code is the triple one which was named after Australia's Lauren Mitchell in 2010.

In order for a gymnast to have a skill named after her, she must submit and successfully perform it at a World championship or an Olympic Games.
