Sergio – piked Dragaslescu

Come Rio Sergio Sasaki could be an AA podium threat. He’ll be getting a lot of press.

Work hard! ???????????????? #rio2016

Nico linked to his Blume Memorial Floor where he mounts with the same acrobatic element, first competed by Korolev (on a rock hard FX) if memory serves.

Hong vs Biles – Vault

The 2008 Olympic Champion competed first. And hit better than we’d seen her in training or prelims.

With 0.8 lower start scores, Simone needed to stick or near stick to move ahead.

Two fantastic vaulters. I was happy with the podium ranking.

1. Hong Un Jong
2. Simone Biles
3. Mykayla Skinner

vault results

commentary by Catherine – Beautiful Gymnastics – EF Day 1: Vault and Bars

She notes that we had no falls, a wide variety of vaults and, happily for me, no Produnovas. Only Dipa of India competed one at this Worlds.

Simone – crazy high

Though Simone is short, she launches her vaults as high as anyone aside from Maroney.

I’d love to have a computer evaluate air time, height and distance as part of the Vault score. As they do in Trampoline.

NCAA Vault – a stick contest

Since College judges do not much reward height, distance or body position, getting a good score is pretty much determined by the landing.

Would somebody please tell these guys that this vault is not humanly possible. :-)

This makes 3 who have competed it successfully.

Sean Senters – triple twisting Yurchenko

Worlds Men’s Vault Final


GOLD: Ri (PRK) 15.416
SILVER: Radivilov (UKR) 15.333
BRONZE: Dalton (USA) 15.199

full results

The survivors of a supremely tough Final.

Ri was actually super happy, though he could only hop/limp off the podium. This guy is legitimately injured. And has had bad ankles for most of his career.

That’s 2 Gold medals on Vault for North Korea.

I’m happy to see Jake Dalton with the Bronze. He’s one of the cleanest gymnasts here and is not enough rewarded for his superb form and line. Especially after the FX Final.

SHEK Wai Hung, who won the event at Asian Games, finished 6th.

Americans are good on Vault

As confirmed by the prestigious FiveThirtyEight blog.

Vault: Hong, Biles, Skinner

Often the Vault final is a let down. But today’s meet was fierce.

2008 Olympic Champion Hong Un-jong stood up her best Vaults in Nanning to put the pressure on Simone Biles.

1. Hong PRK 15.599
2. Biles USA 15.554
3. Skinner USA 15.366

Simone hit, with higher execution scores, but I’m not unhappy with the final ranking.

North Korea suffers. It’s nice to see them be able to celebrate this one athletic superstar.


STEINGRUBER is a great vaulter, but she’s not been close to her best in Nanning. In the final she opted to compete only STY for her second vault.

Yang Hak-seon’s new Vault

Our Olympic and World Champion competes Handspring front with triple twist, something that amazes even the top Vault twisters.

For the Final he’s also training the 1/4-on, 1/4-off, triple twist, almost the same thing but from a slightly different hand position.


Olympic gold medalist on vault Yang Hak Seon in training, preparing for his vault final! 3 1/2 twist!


Yang has not looked up to his usual performance level in Nanning. But for the Final, expect him to hit.
