How’s Uchimura going to compete with that?
I can’t recall any gymnast who’s competed as many different Vaults as Kohei. Here are a few.

Kohei’s forte is twisting. If he wants to compete for Vault medals this cycle he’d need at least Yurchenko triple twist and Handspring 2 1/2 twist (… or 3/1 twist).
Update. One commenter recalls that Kohei has not competed 2 vaults in prelims since 2007. Team and AA are his highest priorities.
