The 2011 Tokyo Worlds was Asuka Teramoto’s first World Championships.  She was not on the lineup to do vault originally, another youngster named Yuumii Iizuka was set to be the vault anchor.  In the last warmup right before the competition started, Yuumi Iizuka tripped on her hurdle for her vault, slamming her knee into the springboard and cutting it open so big that it required immediate stitches.  Asuka Teramoto had to compete vault without any warmup to help Japan qualify into team finals.  She did this vault to score a 13.966 which was tied for Japan’s highest vault score and Japan qualified fifth into team finals with a 223.543.  (x)
