About
Previously the realm of vault specialists, the Yurchenko double full has become essentially a prerequisite for any kind of all-around success.

Mostly you’ll see this vault referred to as a DTY in print and a Yurchenko double full aloud (it always feels weird to say DTY aloud), but note that there is a small-but-mighty underground gymternet movement to get everyone to call it the Baitova (to mimic the Amanar being called the Amanar). No luck yet. Not when there’s such easy shorthand like DTY available. The Amanar is universally called the Amanar only because “Yurchenko 2 and a 5” is seven whole syllables and ain’t nobody got time for that.

Value
5.40 (2017—)
5.80 (2006–2016)
