She never did bars/beam at any major international events that I know of. Mostly she was a vaulter/floor specialist. She did do AA at the 2014 Youth Olympics, but that is individual.
 
Someone was definitely training a double pike front dismount from bars. It may never have been competed at Worlds or Olympics. It was either a gymnast from Ukraine (Daria Zgoba?) or Sweden (Veronica Wagner maybe?)

It was submitted in Toyko

 
what a cool dismount, did she get it named after her? I forget when they started getting skills named after them from a world cup

No she missed it in London and never got it named after her. That fall also critically injured her back and she had to retire from gymnastics.
 
At the 2012 Summer Olympics Maksyuta fell from uneven bars and injured her back. She also fell on the other events and finished last in the preliminaries. It was described as one of the worst performances of an Israeli gymnast as well as below-par disappointing, and Maksyuta herself described it as awful.[33][34]
The back injury forced Maksyuta to retire after the Olympics. She said she was devastated when told by doctors on September 27, 2012 – her 25th birthday – that her injury was too severe to allow her to continue. “Not only did I not celebrate, but I felt that one day that I ran out of life. After 20 years in the sport, it was gone from my life, the door shut in my face. I knew I was not made of iron, but I was so used to training and I loved it so much. For a whole month I was traumatized and I didn’t know how to get along without it.” She is coaching in Israel and hopes to open her own Pilates studio.[35]
