Handspring ➙ Salto vaults with Flyspring Technique

This is one of the best Handspring forward salto half vaults I’ve ever seen

Click PLAY or watch it on Twitter.

Not the most common technique, Haleigh uses what my mentor Boris called “Flyspring” technique. First contact on the table with hips piked. She OPENS her hips while in contact to increase reaction force.

This technique works best for very fast, very powerful gymnasts. They tend to take off closer to the back of the Board and contact the front of the Table. GOAL = get the hands on the table as quickly as possible.
