Terin and the Khorkina

One other thing about Terin Humphrey: She was among the first to perform the Khorkina II vault in something other than a tucked position. The girls taking the video ponder whether it was truly laid out, and indeed the video itself is labeled as a “pike,” but still, impressive.

China’s Cheng Fei, who admittedly does it much more cleanly than Humphrey did here at the 2003 Parkette Invitational, had the laid-out skill named after her at the 2005 World Championships.

    I had no idea she ever competed that vault. Impressive. I wonder why we didn’t see more of it?
