About
All Tsukahara vaults are quite rare these days because they’re just not worth enough to be competitive unless a gymnast is proficient enough to get two laid out twists around. The Tsukahara back pike is too simple to be useful to a international-level modern day elite gymnast, but it may be performed as an intentional downgrade or an option for a lower-level elite.
