Furness Gymnastics

The vault varies in height from 110cm to 125cm depending on the gymnasts age and level. Gymnasts run down a padded runway and with the use of a spring board launch themselves onto the vault. They can approach forwards or backwards (from a roundoff). Gymnasts are expected to land cleanly and demonstrate good technique.

Also they must include dance and dance elements such as leaps and jumps. Gymnasts are deducted if they step out of the floor area and must use the whole floor during their routine. Marks are also given for artistry, the use of choreography and the ease at which they express it.
