A Yurchenko vault (first performed by Natalia Yurchenko of the Soviet Union) begins with a round-off on the runway with the gymnast's feet landing backwards on the springboard. The gymnast then jumps backwards to a handstand, with or without a half or full twist.

Yurchenko vaults are by far the most popular type of vault for women. Yurchenkos without a twist onto the vault table are the easiest vaults.
