In NCAA's a few years ago there was a guy from the Naval Academy that used to compete a vault we called the Bender. Basically, from a light run he would do a hecht vault with an added flip...yes thats right a hecht back flip vault. It was worth a 10.0, but everytime I saw him compete it he always landed hands and knees, or putting his hands down....Anyone ever had kids work it? I played around with it into the foam and there is definately a reason it was a 10.0...its not in the code though??? of course NCAA's play by different rules usually....
