Elena Produnova Sticks World's Most Difficult Vault (GIF)

Russia's Elena Produnova stuck the most difficult vault in women's gymnastics standing at 7.0 D score.


Produnova is the first female gymnast to perform this vault thus having it named after her. She is also the only female gymnast to compete the vault with no problems.

  1. Yamilet Pena competed it just as well at Zibo in 2012, though she took a small step :)

    1. Yes but that was once. You can't say she performs it with no problems

    2. But neither did Prudonova, the only time she completed it fullly successfully was Universaide. Every other time she landed like, if not worse than Pena, with her sitting it down or with a huge step and loss of control.Pena has done a great job considering the difficulty. I think she should be recognized for it that's all.

  2. Really looks like her behind sits on the mat and should be considered a fall?

    1. Well, her feet hit first so technically it's considered a stick. It's only considered a fall if the gymnasts butt lands before her feet.

    2. As, I understand it, if your feet don't land first, it doesn't even count.. I too think I saw her behind sitting on the mat.. I guess if she had stayed like that, it would be considered a fall...

  3. I just dont like this vault, I'msorry . Its not appealing to watch. And to land it straight up is not happening. It does look like she's on her butt... Either way I prefer a half on or amanar to watch. This vault should stay with the men. And the seriously cowboyed legs dont help the look of this vault any...at all
