About
The handspring pike 1/2 is among those favored vaults from the early 2000s that is now rarely performed in elite gymnastics. At least intentionally. We do see gymnasts attempting to get credit for the layout version of this vault who are actually performing a prototypical pike 1/2. And they get credit for the layout anyway. Because life. The handspring pike 1/2 is increasingly popular in NCAA for its 10.0 start value.

Value
