Koko Tsurumi, Vault @ Japanese Nationals

Koko Tsurumi has been training a DTY (double twisting yurchenko).  This vault will give her a 0.8 increase in her D-Score over her current FTY (full twisting yurchenko).

After Beijing, Koko Tsurumi stated in an interview that vault was the apparatus that she was going to work hardest on, as she needs to upgrade it to be a competitive all-arounder.  She warmed it up at the 2009 Japanese Nationals, but decided to go back to the FTY for competition (as you can see in the video).  She also did a FTY at the NHK cup.  Time will tell on whether on not she’ll compete the double at Worlds or not.
