Poll: Do you think compulsories will be extinct?

Vaulting news has a very important and serious question for you:

Do you think that in the near future of, let’s say, 10 years, compulsories will be extinct of main vaulting competitions?

We already see that happening on world cups and other trophies and pas des deux competitions.

What’s your opinion?

Do you think it’s a good idea?


I am a 27 years old psychologist from Brazil, although I have graduated in psychology I work with media and communications, with a focus on data analysis. I am currently heading towards a master's degree at the London School of Economics (LSE). I am not vaulting anymore, but I did for over 10 years. As it very often happens in our sport, I never really left, I taught at a social project for a few years and have been working on VN since 2014.

    I think that at the highest level of competition, i.e. CVI3* and CVI4*, there won’t necessarily be the need for the compulsory test in Individual, whereas in a team I think it will still be used. However I think it will differ depending on the competition, WEG and Senior championships may not have compulsories, but junior ones will continue to.. ect
