The Produnova vault is a part of artistic gymnastics, and it technically consists of a front handspring that erupts into a double somersault. In simple words, this vault sees an athlete sprint up and catapult high into the air, completing two somersaults before landing safely. This vault is considered to be the most difficult and dangerous manoeuvre in gymnastics by many professionals all over the globe.

The Produnova is considered extremely risky and not many have attempted it; there are only five women in the world till date who have landed the vault successfully. It has a difficulty rating of 7.0, the highest of all. If an athlete does land this perfectly, there is almost a guaranteed chance of winning the event.
