SAD BUT TRUE VAULTING TALES....

Russell Neal


One of my favourite stories in the latest Couch Gymnast Magazine is Diana Gallaghers true tale of vaults gone terribly wrong.  It made me laugh out loud.

There is nothing like wiping out on vault. The moment between springboard and table when you cease to do what you had set out to accomplish. The knowledge that there is not a thing you can do to save yourself besides tuck your head and hope the mat treats you kindly.
 I don’t speak of intentional dives. Surely if your coach told you to dive over the table, you would prepare. You would set into the dive. You’d even point your toes.

Be sure to read it..... HERE!

  1. I'm so flattered! Makes up for the wounded pride of all those failed vaults...
