The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Handspring Front Tuck 1.5


Known as
Handspring tuck 1/1

It is quite uncommon in current elite gymnastics to see complicated tucked vaults, and as such the handspring tuck 1.5 is not typically performed. It’s an exceptionally difficult vault and not rewarded highly enough to be worth performing for those who are capable of it. For instance, the handspring layout 1/2 is worth two tenths more, and those capable of doing a 1.5 in the tucked position are probably also capable of doing a 1/2 in the layout position for higher value.
