This video was shot at 240 frames per second and was shot specifically to get some good technical footage of vault timing. Well we got some good technical footage, but we didn’t get good vault footage. What we captured was a whole bunch of the most classic vaulting and over mistakes: Too Late and Too Low.
A Chronic Problem
The majority of vaulting and over problems are caused by throwing too late or too low. In the video we saw, in super slo motion, the negative effects of throwing too late. Confusion, faulty collection, sloppy foot placement, divided attention (target and obstacle), inability to leap, flailing trajectories and crash landings. These are common problems in the game of disc and are most often caused by throwing too late or too low.
