straight jump with 180° longitudinal rotation / vertical rotation


Explanation:
This could be talking about a floor jump or a vault https://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sărituri_(gimnastică).

If it is referring to a move on a vault, either "jump" or "vault" can be used and are interchangeable. With regard to floor movements, I would use "jump".

I think you will find that the longitudinal and vertical axis are interchangeable terms in gymnastics:

"Rotations: Rotations are body movements around an itnernal axis. Types of rotations include vertical (rotation around the vertical axis that runs head to toe, horizontal (rotation around...) etc" (pg. 75)

I would say that "twist" and "turn" are also interchangeable:

"Twist: A rotation about the longitudinal, or vertical, axis. This is the axis that runs from your head to your feet. When you spin in a circle while standing you are "twisting". A right twist is defined as the right shoulder going backwards, the converse for a left twist."

"Rotation: Circular motion around an axis. A forward roll is a rotation, as is a twist."
http://www.drillsandskills.com/definitions

Example sentence(s):
  • "While airborne, the body inclines backward to be out of axis with double LONGITUDINAL ROTATION (720°) with bent legs and arms close to the chest (Tuck position). "
