INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 26, 2015 - The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) recently approved naming a still rings skill after the USA's Brandon Wynn of Voorhees, N.J./Team Hilton HHonor (U.S. Olympic Training Center), because he was the first gymnast to compete the skill at an official FIG competition. He performed what is now known as the "Wynn" during the men's team competition at 2014 Pan Am Championships in Toronto, Canada, and the skill is included in the FIG's 2013-16 Code of Points for Men's Artistic Gymnastics.

The "Wynn" is a slow roll forward with straight body and arms through cross through to inverted cross. The skill is valued as an E skill on a scale from A to G, with G being the most difficult.

Wynn is now one of the few U.S. gymnasts who have a skill named after them in the Code of Points.
