The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Round-off Full On, Back Tuck 1/2

Event
Vault

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

About
While the regular back tuck and back pike versions of this vault retain some footprint in NCAA gymnastics because of their useful 10.0 start value, any additional twisting does not because there is no point to doing it NCAA because you can’t go higher than a 10.0 start, and there’s no point to do it in elite because it’s just so poorly valued with respect to regular Yurchenko vaults.

Value
4.00 (2022-)
4.40 (2017-2021)
4.90 (2006-2016)
