Round-off Full On, Back Layout 1/2

Event
Vault

Known as
Yurchenko full on, lay 1/2
Round-off 1/1 on, layout half

About
Like the tuck 1/2 version of this vault, the layout 1/2 is also an unseen, mysterious figure in the code of points. Technically, it exists. But also…does it?

It’s enough of a burden to try to wrench a straight salto out of a full-twisting pre-flight, but then also adding a 1/2 twist in post-flight with a blind landing, and all for the same value as a Yurchenko 1.5? It’s not exactly surprising that this vault is like one of those deep undersea creatures that only live in the pitch dark and have never been studied.

Value
4.60 (2022-)
5.00 (2017-2021)
5.50 (2006-2016)
