Known as
Handspring pike (front)

About
I will spend some time with this one because avid followers of the site will know that I love a front pike vault with no twisting more than most relatives. It can be so crisp and satisfying, and the low value of this vault (as well as the Omelianchik) that leads to their relative absence in modern elite gymnastics is a travesty. Give me this glory over a Yurchenko full any day.

Value
4.20 (2017—)
4.60 (2006–2016)
