Russian gymnast Alexandra Sorokina attempted to dismount the uneven bars with a triple back tuck at the 1992 junior European championships.

The then junior gymnast sat down the difficult dismount.

The triple back tuck entered the code of points ten years later when Mexican gymnast Brenda Magana competed it at the World championships.

The difficult element is rated a G, which is the highest rating on the uneven bars in the current code of points.

Soviet gymnast Svetlana Kozlova successfully competed the dismount in 1990 during a small competition.

Gymnasts have to successfully perform their original elements at the Olympic Games, World championships, or an FIG competition in order for it to enter the code of points under their names.
