These are the same vaults from the previous vault video. The scores have been adjusted to reflect the updated rule changes for this season. Hopefully this helps everyone get on the same page for Level 6 & 7 Vaulting.   This video was produced by JD MacDonald at AGA in Long Beach CA. The scores are from USA Gymnastics Women's Technical Committee.
