The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Handspring Double Full

Event
Vault

Known as
Handspring 2/1
Handspring double full

About
Put this vault in the “complicated but probably pointless” category, at least for elite. Getting two full twists around after contact requires seriously quick twisting and vaulting skill, so those capable of doing it will typically move on to learning a handspring or Tsuk family vault to try to get an actual competitive score. That renders this one fairly unseen in elite, but Arden Hudson of Ball State garnered some headlines in 2019 for performing it cleanly in NCAA.

Value
3.60 (2022-)
4.00 (2006-2021)
