Judging from what you see in the olympics you could conclude that the jumping in track & field is much more functional than the jumping in the gymnastics. It's easy to find analogies to long & high jumping, not so easy to find any use for somersaults and backflips (other than to impress the girls).

But if you consider the most basic gymnastic vaults you get really primal moves, reminding more of parkour than competitive gymnastics.

Anyway ... handsupported jumping could be considered just as functional as non-supported (track & field) jumping.
