Yurchenko Tuck 1/2


Known as
Yurchenko tuck 1/2
Yurchenko back tuck half

Like the Yurchenko back tuck, this vault sort of got skipped over in the progression and never had its moment in the sun, as by the time Yurchenko brought this style of vault onto the world stage, doing it laid out or tucked with a full twist was already all the rage. Showing more difficulty than a tuck 1/2 was very quickly the expectation.
