How do you play cymbals? Answered

I play the drums, and I was wondering if anyone knew how to do the up and down cymbal follow-through crash. And what the actual name of this technique is. If you don't know what I mean, take this link and watch this video to see what I'm getting at.

I can't tell you HOW to do that - I can only hypothesize its because of his height that its ergonomically 'easier' to do that (with his elbow below the edge of the hihat)...

That's what I thought too, but there is also a video of him and several others who are now adults who can do this technique. But thanks for trying! P.S. Can you see if you know anyone who knows what this technique is called (if it has a name...)?
