Secret Life Snap Shot #9

Click here for Rachel’s profile.

Here’s Biochemist/Professional Wrestler Rachel Collins (a.k.a. MsChif) in action in November 2008 in a match for the SHIMMER title against Sara Del Rey. In this picture you’re seeing a “standing moonsault” in mid-move. So what, you might ask, is a “standing moonsault”?

“It’s become a signature move for me,” says Rachel “It’s derived from a back handspring, which you’ll see lots of gymnasts and cheerleaders doing. Though instead of ending the move landing on your feet, you stop the move short to land horizontally across your opponent making them take the impact of your landing.”

No “standing moonsault” for me, thanks.
