Vault Balk update: May 2016-The new balk definition made by the JO & TC: A balk is defined as a running approach that does not result in the athlete coming to rest or support on top of the table (or mat stack). If the gymnast either stops mid-run, runs off the runway, or makes contact with the hand placement mat, safety zone mat, board or vaulting apparatus (table or mat stack) without coming to rest or support on top of the vault apparatus, it is considered a BALK and counts as one of the three approaches to complete one or two vaults. • If the athlete comes to rest or support on top of the vault apparatus (table or mat stack), it is considered a VAULT and will receive a zero (VOID).
