Amazing Gymnastics Vaulting at the US Visa Championships

Gymnastics really is a great sport to watch on video. There is so much that can be analyzed from a biomechanics and physics point of view too.

Sometimes though, it is just fun to watch in awe as one of these gymnasts does something amazing.

Here is David Sender doing a Yurchenko Double Pike on Vault at the US Visa Gymnastics Championships. During the move David jumps backward off the springboard onto his hands on the vaulting horse. From there he does two and a half back flips in a pike position (legs straight and hips bent), to land back on his feet.

Amazing what the human body can do and he performs it well, getting great height and control.
