Yang Hak Seon Still World's Best Vaulter
Jul 20, 2012YANG HAK SEON GOLDEN AGAIN! While several gymnasts stuck superb, difficult vaults to stay competitive, reigning World Champion Yang Hak Seon of South Korea showed the highest levels of difficulty and execution to win gold in a riveting men's vaulting final. As the final vaulter, Yang again showed his signature vault, a handspring triple twist, which carries a massive 7.4 D-score - the highest in the world. Although he took two big steps forward, he made up the difference with his second vault, a near-perfect Kasamatsu double full (9.6 E-score)! Yang set himself apart from the field with his perfect twisting form and body position in the air, opening up to prepare for his landings. His average of 16.533 showed the attention to detail in his tricks. Denis Ablyazin of Russia had plenty of difficulty, but wasn't as precise as Yang in the execution of his Tsukahara double pike and and half-on, 2 1/2 twist off (named after China's Li Xiaopeng). Ablyazin took silver (16.399), his second event medal at these Olympics (he took bronze on floor exercise). Igor Radivilov of Ukraine stuck an astounding Dragulescu (double front half-out), followed by a Tsuk double pike with just one step, but in a field this talented, his average of 16.316 was only good enough for bronze - Ukraine's first gymnastics medal in London. Tomas Gonzalez Sepulveda (CHI), Sam Mikulak (USA) and Isaac Botella (ESP) performed their vaults well, but each lacked the difficulty of the vault medalists. Like Yang Hak Seon, Botella displayed excellent twisting form, while American Sam Mikulak stuck his handspring double front. Romania's Flavius Koczi struggled with his landings and appeared to get lost in the air on his second vault, which he intended to be a Randi. He left out a full twist and took a large step backwards on landing. Kristian Thomas of Great Britain stood up a nice Yurchenko double pike (just a small hop), but unfortunately sat down his handspring double front. Thomas's vaults will be last performance from a British gymnast at these Olympics. MEN'S VAULT FINAL: 1. Yang Hak Seon (KOR)- 16.533 2. Denis Ablyazin (RUS)- 16.399 3. Igor Radivilov (UKR)- 16.316 4.
