FIG should improve Vault landing mats

Does anyone have statistics on this?

I feel certain we are seeing more severe injuries on Vault landings, on average, than on any other apparatus.

I’d recommend FIG require a mat more like the safer one used by Trampoline sports on double-mini.

  1. I wonder why we don’t just adopt it since it already exists for FIG trampoline? Is there resistance? I don’t actually know what the difference in the matting is, but it seems nicer.
