Sasha Artemev plans on doing a triple-twisting Yurhcneko vault. He's taking out some of his difficulty to go for consistency - like Grandi I think it was that said that the gymnasts will figure it out that they can get a better score by doing the skills well than by adding more and more difficulty - on the other hand, some guys can add more and more difficulty and be consistent too, so that is what they are prob. thinking of when trying harder and harder skills.
[quote]At the U.S. Qualifier, Artemev finished seventh after the first day with multiple falls. He said he decided to scratch the second day of competition after suffering a slight injury on parallel bars. He's since made the decision to remove some of the skills to improve his consistency.
"My routines were stacked [with tricks]," he told IG. "A lot of skills I couldn't handle." [/quote]
[quote]Artemev says some of the skills he's removed from his planned routines include a double front pass on floor exercise, a Wu travel on pommel horse, a piked Belle on parallel bars and a Weiler kip and Stalder-Rybalko combination on high bar.
"My routines are easier for me and I'm confident," said Artemev, who will turn 22 on Aug. 29. "I'm not competing on the edge."
Artemev, a native of Minsk, Belarus, says he has been training the triple-twisting Yurchenko seriously for a few months.
"It's one of those vaults that's on and off," he said. "If I get a good block and I stall it then I can land it. I have stuck a couple in the gym and it's like, whoa. But just landing it, even with a step, I'll be happy." [/quote]
It's from: "Artemev Aiming for Consistency, History"
The history is that if he lands his tripe twisting yurchenko vault, he'll probably be the first to land it in competition. He did it at the U.S. men's qualifier in June, but rolled out if it - it's a 7.0 A-Panel score, so he got 15.750 on the vault.
