Ebee Price 10.0 Vault

OSU 196.450 – Stanford 197.000

Congratulations to both teams, neither of which had started the season well.

Oregon State scored a season-high but fell to Stanford in a Pac-12 dual 197.000-196.450. Madeline Gardiner scored 39.025 to finish second in the all-around as the Beavers scored season-highs on three events. …


The story of the competition, however, was Ebee scoring a perfect 10.

Bill Sands articles

Dr. Bill Sands is now posting some of his research on Advanced Study of Gymnastics. For example:

Vault Board Take Offs – What’s with the “Target” on the Top?

Puzzles and Paradoxes – Gymnastics


He found that Spring Boards vary greatly. That the best place on the Board to jump for each gymnast, for each vault, is often NOT the place on the Board coaches expect.

That’s a very interesting finding. It’s well worth clicking through.

His article includes a screen grab from a video of Sang Lan’s vault from the 1998 Goodwill Games NYC. The one where she was paralyzed. :-(

I’d always heard that no video of that vault existed. It does.

Head Coach Mark Cook:

“Anytime you can beat Alabama it makes you happy. It’s only the third time we’ve beat them in our program’s history …

On The Comeback

“I told them to go out on the last event and have some fun with it. I told them to flush what just happened in the previous event and go out and show people how good you are. Take it one pass at a time and show it off. Alabama had an unusual final rotation with three falls. …

Stanford had a terrible first competition of the season, losing to Cal. But many are predicting big things for the 2015 season. Ebee will be a star. :-)
