Although it wasn’t clear if she was working on the move for Tokyo, fans were rightfully impressed:
Simone Biles is working a Yurchenko double pike vault — and one that looks ready for the hard landing surface. No woman has ever attempted a Yurchenko double flipping vault in international competition. Wow. https://t.co/zXqOrxalRb

Please do this in competition. PLEASE.

I am sure the move was impressive and probably impossible for most of your competitors but all I could focus on was how awesome the “landing” was. I want to disappear in foam blocks!
