The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Yurchenko Tuck 1.5


Known as
Yurchenko tuck 1.5
Yurchenko 1.5 tucked

In modern elite gymnastics, the Yurchenko tucked 1.5 has met with the same fate as all the other complicated tucked vaults in that it is valued too low to ever be worth trying. The Y1.5 tucked is worth the same as a layout 1/2 and barely more than the straight layout, so why would you ever even bother?

The tucked 1.5 did have half a moment in NCAA following the downgrade of the layout full as it still started from a 10, but it turns out this vault is kind of hard and has never truly caught on as a 10.0 start alternative.
