About
The case of the ever-shrinking D score. In the last decade, the Yurchenko 1.5 has gone from being a fairly common vault and one that even medal-contending teams would consider using in a team final to the domain of a relative handful of vaulters on the elite scene. This is partly due to the increasing expectations of difficulty (post-2008, a 1.5 just cannot stay with an Amanar) and partly due to its 2009-2016 value just three-tenths above the full, making it hardly worth upgrading to, assuming that the new execution deductions will outweigh the difficulty advantage pretty easily.

Value
5.00 (2017—)
5.30 (2009–2016)
5.50 (2006–2008)
