Olympic medallist Yang Hak Seon is reported to have upgraded his vault the “Yang” to a “Yang 2″. His new technique features an added half twist to his Tsukahara triple turn which earned him a gold medal at the London Olympics this summer. Of course, there is only a picture available to describe the vault but he is scheduled to compete at the La Roche Sur Yon World Cup in France next month, perhaps the vault may emerge?

***UPDATE***

More news outlets are beginning to report on the possiblity of an upgrade. Appprently Yang can land the vault 80% of the time and plans to show it at this October World Championships where he could then have it entered into the Code of Points. There is also a television news report available here.
