For forward approach vaults the best men in the world peak at over 10m / sec velocity.

But the important phase is contact with the board.


Highest priority when coaching vault is sprint: technique, physical preparation and psychology. The gymnast must be motivated to run as fast as possible for their ability level.

Those successful international vaulters who do not run at top speed could be generate even more power if they did.

I like to start training sprint as young as age-5. And have seen some very good runners age-6. Fathers are always impressed to see their youngster sprinting with far better technique than the other kids at school.
