The UCLA Freshman sensation scored a perfect 10 on the same night that Georgia’s Courtney Kupets scored two perfect 10s at another meet.
“Perfect” is a red flag to most coaches. We know that any performance could be better. Higher, stronger, faster.
But I’ve got no complaints with Vanessa’s vault score in this meet. Wow!
She competes with Brittani McCullough, recall, likely the most powerful vaulter in College gymnastics today. Brittani stuck Yurchenko full in the same rotation for 9.95. Yet the judges were still willing to award a 10 to Zamarripa.
It was clean.
