Asher Hong Performs the Ri Se Gwang For The First Time in NCAA History
Stanford freshman, Asher Hong, performed the Ri Se Gwang vault for the first time in NCAA history.
The Ri Se Gwang was named in 2009, following the successful competition of the vault by North Korean gymnast, Ri Se-gwang. It has since only been performed a handful of times in international competitions and is currently tied for the most difficult vault in the FIG Code of Points. The only other American to successfully perform the vault is Donnell Whittenburg.
