The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Handspring 1/2

Event
Vault

Known as
Handspring 1/2
Front handspring 1/2

About
The handspring 1/2 is even rarer than the simple handspring in modern gymnastics—as in nonexistent—because if a gymnast is intentionally performing the simplest possible vault, she’ll do the handspring, and if not, she’ll try something with more useful value.

Value
2.00 (2022-)
2.40 (2017-2021)
2.80 (2006-2016)
