US Gymnast Sticks One of the Hardest Vaults In The World (Video)

U.S. gymnast Simone Biles made history last Thursday at the 2018 U.S. Women’s World Team Selection Camp in Sarasota, Florida. She completed a vault that no one has ever done before.

According to gymnastic lingo, it was a “Yurchenko with a half turn on with a stretched salto forward with two turns.” Somebody else described it as a “back handspring-half twist” onto the vault table . . . and then a “front double full” off of it.

No matter how you explain it, she was the first to nail it . . . and if she does it at the World Championships in Qatar, they’ll probably start calling it “The Biles.”
