Your Daily Dose of Gymnastics--Vaulting Through the Years

This nifty little montage (complete with appropriately cheesy montage anthem) is a nice demonstration of the evolution of women's vault. The 1950's and 60's vaults sure look pretty similar to what you might see in a low level, local gymnastics meet. But note the springboard in the earlier clips--they didn't always have springs, you know.

To me, the dividing line between the older style of gymnastics and the powerful modern standard is Elena Shushunova.
