I’m convinced I’ve seen this vault

Front somi onto the springboard, handspring front vault

I’m sure I’ve seen a video of it years ago. I want to say it was from a USSR domestic competition in the mid 80s.

Any ideas?

I found this one, but not sure if this is it. It is a Penn State gymnast:

I haven’t seen it on a video, but I feel like I remember seeing the COP drawing of it.

He mentions in the video that he’s heard of someone doing the vault I describe

That looks like a recipe for disaster, if you are slightly off you are slamming your head right into the horse.
