Handspring TRIPLE front

We’ve spent two quadrennials in fear of catastrophic injury on WAG Vault – Handspring double front.

This new vault is significantly more dangerous. 😦

Click PLAY or watch it on Twitter. Igor Radivilov, 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist.

  1. That is no where even close… of course we haven’t seen the attempts into soft mats but that does not look even close to be ready for hard surfaces.


  2. Since Igor Radivilov is nowhere close to landing this, I wonder if he is going with the Yamilet Pena strategy of trying to plant his heels into the mat a split second before he sits down the vault. I give him kudos for trying the handspring triple front. Until I saw this video, I did not believe this vault was possible. He better not use this in qualifying because Ukraine needs his vault score to have any chance of qualifying for TF. If he makes vault EF, then he might go for broke (hopefully not any of his body parts).
