Instagram. I do think FIG must widen the Vault landing mats. Ken Ikeda from Canada suffered a similar landing injury a couple of years ago. On Yurchenko.
News has travelled pretty fast around the world anyway, so I thought I would inform you all correctly. At the weekend, the 21/11/15 to be specific. I had a freak accident on vault. I went wonky on a yuchenko and landed with one leg on the landing matts (right leg) the other on the concrete (left leg) which left me with a broken leg both tibia & Fibia. I had to have surgery shortly after. The pain as excruciating as it was I could handle, but the disappointment & heart break from going from such a high at the world championships to the lowest low after a little mishap was very hard for me. all my emotions just erupted and I've found myself constantly In tears. This may be a big stepping stone to overcome but most if not all successful athletes have had to overcome adversity to reach their goals. That moment at the world championships I will never forget & it's something I want to feel again. So after my recovery stage I will be grinding to get myself back better than I have ever been. I would like to thank a lot of people for your support, my family & team mates which are basically the same thing @jaythompson_96 @maxwhitlock @reissbeckford @haydenskinner43 & the biggest thank you to my coach and father figure @scotthann who never left my side once and I know your behind me every step of the way. My motto I live by; Tough Times Don't Last Tough People Do
Marique using it as a progression for the Vault. It’s great for Kolman, as well.
Looks like they need a new throw mat.

And has already earned a personal invitation to compete at the Rio Olympics.
A man ahead of his time on Vault, Dragulescu pioneered the jump that bears his name (two front flips with a half twist) in 1999, and it helped him win four World titles on the event (2001, 2005, 2006 and 2009). Though he stuck his signature skill in event finals at both the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games, he was never as consistent with his second vault, and had to settle for less than gold both times.
While the Dragulescu is still considered among the most difficult in the world, Dragulescu knows that he may need to do even more if he wants to land on the Olympic podium next summer in Rio. …
