Successfully adding more twists to yurchenkos in large part depends on the gymnast’s focus. A skill this difficult is achieved by taking progressive steps. What the gymnast does before he is in the air plays a big role in the outcome of the skill. A good hurdle that moves up and forward along with a round-off that contacts the board with the center of mass in front of the feet is important. Twist with a straight body and the arms close to the center of mass. Take another look at this same vault without any still-frames.
