S. Korean teen gymnast Yeo Seo-jeong enters international scoring book with new vault Updated: 2019-06-26 16:37:59 KST

South Korean gymnast Yeo Seo-jeong is just 17 years old, but she has already had a new vault named after her.
The International Gymnastics Federation has added the teen gymnast's vault technique into their scoring book as a new technique worth 6.2 points.
Yeo successfully managed to perform the vault for the first time at an official competition on Jeju Island last week to make it into the federation's Code of Points.
She follows in the footsteps of her father, Yeo Hong-chul, who won silver in the men's vault at the 1996 Olympics, and has two techniques named after him in the scoring book.
