“Time of flight” makes up 1/3 the score. It’s measured by machine. Objectively.
FIG is looking at additional objective criteria that could be evaluated by computer. How long could it be before Trampoline judging could be entirely evaluated by computer?

Beautiful but … landing deduction. Lack of split. Connections?

At a judge’s meeting in Glasgow I was informed that even the great Kohei has been deducted in the past. Including 2014 Worlds.
Not for “low chest” – that would be stupid – but rather for not “having his feet together”.
As has been adopted by the Women’s NCAA, after landing with feet shoulder width FIG male gymnasts must slide heels together until they touch. If they do not touch, the feet were too wide.
Kohei is sliding his heels together now.

#Glasgow2015 Beam silver medalist Sanne Wevers recalculates her score immediately after her routine. It was appealed. And her score was raised 0.1, one of very few successful appeals at Worlds.

There was far less controversy regarding judging at Worlds 2015 than at Worlds past.
One of the biggest issues was the ranking of the top Floor finalists. The GOLD on floor was 2nd place, seeing as Simone was in the Final.

At the time I thought Sae’s crazy difficult tumbling would win her the medal.
