Some people claim that Russian gymnast Yelena  (also called Elena) Produnova’s vault at the 1999 University Games was the greatest women’s vault ever performed.  Here is a video of the vault.

Yelena is the only woman who has ever mastered this handspring double front vault in competitions.  And it was off a horse!  Just think how she would do if she had had the springy vaulting tables that we have today!

So what do you think?  Was this the best vault ever done?  Leave your comments.
