Note that all these demonstrators take off from the sprint for their hurdle from the opposite leg they put down first on round-off. The legs switch during the hurdle.

That’s far more common than the alternative (taking off with the same leg).

Boris Verkhovsky first told me decades ago that a switch leg hurdle should increase power, but that it wasn’t essential.
