I don’t know if this vault should be banned or not but something has to be done about it before someone breaks their neck attempting to land it.
The above video is just another example of a gymnast trying to code whore a routine because she know even if she doesn’t hit it she still gets credit for the vault as long as her feet touch the ground first.
What is your opinion? IMO I say make the vault a lower start value and if someone competes the vault and lands on their feet like Prudnova did than give them an execution score of 9.90. That way it encourages this vault only being done if the gymnast lands it like Prudnova did.
Unless you land it like this you should not be attempting it. PERIOD hell even Elena had shitty form on this vault but at least she didn’t look like she was going to die mid flight.
