A full twisting Shaposh transition is a clear hip circle with flight from low bar to high bar with a full twist. Since the D score of bars transitions is capped at an E, the skill is expected to receive an E rating once it gets competed at a World championships, Olympic Games or Youth Olympics.

Elizabeth Seitz of Germany originated a similar skill, a toe on circle with flight from low bar to high bar with a full twist. Popular Russian gymnast Aliya Mustafina has competed it at 2013 World championships.

It is worth mentioning that if a gymnast performed a kip after Shaposhnikova type elements with or without full turn, it will be considered an empty swing hence a 0.5 deduction will apply.

The gymnast performing the skill in the GIF is called Chelsey Coleman, a former Utah recruit. She is believed to have perused a body building career after retiring from gymnastics.
