Round-off 1/2 on, Tuck 1/2 (Servente)


Known as
Round-off 1/2 on, tuck 1/2
Yurchenko 1/2 on, tuck 1/2

Named after
Veronica Servente (ITA)

The Servente vault is having a bit of a moment in NCAA gymnastics as several athletes have simultaneously stumbled upon it as a reasonable alternative to the Yurchenko layout 1.5 for a 10.0 start. That’s good, because it got destroyed in the D-score department in elite in the 2022 update, making it even less realistic that we might see this (intentionally) in elite.

Technically, the Servente name is supposed to refer only to when the vault is performed as a front tuck with a 1/2 turn out (rather than a 1/2 turning back tuck), but since the women’s code no longer differentiates between those two techniques, they now both exist in the same box as the same skill with the same value.

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
