Known as
Handspring layout 1/1 (full)

About
The handspring layout full is worth the same value as the Yurchenko double full, making it a supremely competitive vault on the world stage. Which means that even though it’s still rather uncommon (because handspring), we will see athletes like Ellie Black and Oksana Chusovitina perform it and having quite a bit of scoring success with it. Now the question: Can this vault go a single quad without getting downgraded? Only time will tell.

Value
5.00 (2022-)
5.40 (2017-2021)
5.80 (2013–2016)
5.90 (2006–2012)
