|Get vaulting with Beth Tweddle|
|Around the Academy:
Hi, I'm Beth Tweddle, part of the GB Olympic team and World Championship bronze medallist.
And this is my Olympic gymnastic guide to the vault.
Watch my guide:
The vault requires a combination of speed, strength and agility.
Judges will be looking for height and length of vault as well as dynamic turns, twists and somersaults.
And all that with a controlled landing.
To help you understand the apparatus I will guide you through a simple vault.
I'll show the take-off and jump for the simple squat vault and how to nail the landing.
Once mastered you could always try a straddle vault or even a handspring!
Hopefully this little taster will get you out there wanting more.
You never know in a few years we may see you vaulting your way to Olympic glory!
