UPDATED 8/21/12 - A correction has been made to the Apparatus chapter under Vault (page 67):
Jr. Olympic: A hand placement mat may be placed on the runway (but not on the board) ONLY for vaults that require placing the hands on the runway in front of the board (Round-off or Front handspring entry.) The hand placement mat must be manufactured by a gymnastics equipment company and cannot exceed 2 inches in height. No other type matting is allowed.
