A clip for now and then: (14)

Once again, Nastia Liukin! This time with her nearly perfect vault at the Olympics. I still don´t know, why the judges took 4 or 5 tenth of deduction. But apart from this, it´s just a pleasure to watch her Yurchenko 1,5 over and over again.

Click play or watch it on YouTube.

    The only thing, and if they took it for it, it’d be stupid, it was right before she landed, she had a slight (and very slight) leg seperation but I don’t think so…

    I actually have no qualms about that vault. It was great. And I normally don’t like Nastia 🙂

    Yeah, they were picky. The most noticiable errors are the piking after the block (that could have been a 0.3 deduction) and the landing with heels apart (0.1).

    Other possibilities:
    -Lack of height, though I think is enough.
    -slight underrotation of the last salto,
    -deviation from straight direction. Even if she landed in the corridor, there’s a newsletter that suggests landings closer to the border would probably have a problem on the block, therefore a 0.1 deduction could be possible.
