Men’s Vaults Women Haven’t Done… Yet

The State of Women’s Vaulting up to 2012

Women’s vaulting so far has mostly peaked with Amanar vaults (2 & 1/2 Twisting Yurchenkos). But Elena Produnova stands at the top of the list of all-time best female vaulters, doing the most difficult women’s vault ever, which is named after her – a handspring double tuck front. This video shows ten of the best female vaulters ever.

This is a video of some of the most difficult vaults ever done. As of the 2012 Olympics, no woman has ever done any of these vaults. The start values for these vaults for men comes from the 2009 – 2012 quadrennium.

This video shows ten of the best women’s vaults and female vaulters ever, including McKayla Maroney and Elena Produnova. Oksana Chusovitina not being in the video seems to ba a major oversight, though.

McKayla Maroney

But the vaulting of McKayla Maroney, who is capable of doing at least two vaults never done before by a woman, and other women with the power and air time, are most certainly going to do at least some of the vaults, done previously only by men, in the 2013 – 2016 quadrennium. McKayla Maroney has reportedly already worked double tuck Yurchenkos and many believe she is capable of of a triple twisting Yurchenko as this compiled vault video clearly demonstrates.
