Oksana Omelianchik (SOV)

Fun fact: This is the best vault. That’s not an opinion, just a real thing that is true. It is also criminally undervalued with respect to the Yurchenko layout full in the elite code, currently worth two tenths less despite how much more aesthetically pleasing and non-boring it is. The Omelianchik should be worth at least the same—if not 80 tenths more in order to promote some variety and avert its endangered status. This needs to function as a viable alternative.

Thankfully, the Omelianchik does still have a place in NCAA gymnastics thanks for its 10.0 start, but even there we have seen its frequency dwindling compared to other 10.0 options that aren’t the Yurchenko 1.5. And that’s just unacceptable, Veronica.
