Handspring 1/1 on


Known as
Handspring 1/1 on
Handspring full on

The version of this vault with an additional full twist is the one actually named for Olga Korbut in the current code, but the simpler repulsion version is similar associated with her and her successful showings of the early 1970s.

By modern standards, it’s a very strange vault because it’s all pre-flight difficulty with no expectations for doing anything in the post-flight, which is not really the point of vaulting. That’s just…springboarding. The difficulty of that pre-flight, however, saw a rare upgrade in value for this vault in the 2017 code.  When most vault values were being cut by 0.4, this vault’s value increased by 0.4. In the 2022 update, however, it got the same 0.4 downgrade as everyone else.
