Definition: Vault

Vault: A gymnastics event performed over the vaulting table by both men and women. The gymnast runs down the padded vault runway, vaults off the vaulting springboard onto the horse, blocks off the hands, and finishes the vault to land in a standing position. At the lower level, each competitor performs two vaults and the scores are averaged. In Elite and international competition, only one vault is performed, except in Finals.
