Simone Biles does gymnastics moves that are so difficult, she can fall and still win a competition. Look for her at some point in the #Tokyo2020  Olympics to launch a powerful Yurchenko double pike vault. It will be named for her if she completes it.

We're in to the final rotation of women's artistic qualifying in Tokyo, and @TeamGB  head to vault. Amelie Morgan is up first and completes a really solid competition. She hardly moves on her full twisting Yurchenko vault for 13.858 GB#Tokyo2020 

Alice Kinsella competes next on vault for GB. Her double twisting Yurchenko has good form in the air. She's a little deep in her landing but does well to score 14.166 GB#Tokyo2020 

Jessica Gadirova will compete two vaults with the hope of making the final on this apparatus. They're both exceptional. Her first, a double twisting Yurchenko scores 14.500, and her second 14.200 for an average of 14.350 🙌 GB#Tokyo2020 

The final gymnast to compete on for GB in this women's artistic qualifying is Jennifer Gadirova. It's another brilliant double twisting Yurchenko vault which has great height and a step back for 14.533 🙌 GB#Tokyo2020
