About
While not the simplest possible Yurchenko (Natalia Yurchenko originally debuted the vault as a back tuck before progressing upward in difficulty), the Yurchenko layout is the easiest Yurchenko that you’ll still see on occasion, though usually from only the weakest vaulters at a world championship or juniors from lower-tier countries. Otherwise, this vault is a warmup timer, not a competition vault.
