An interesting thread on the IG forum started by LilyPod:
… what degrees of chest position earn a deduction, and how many tenths are deducted at each degree? (if that makes sense). Where do you draw the line between acceptable and “too low” when a gymnast dismounts or lands a pass?
I screencapped 4 girls who are currently doing the full-twisting double pike in today’s code at the moment their feet hit the floor. Can anyone use the pics to explain to me who is getting a deduction and who is not? I’m really just trying to understand. …
Officially, the deductions are as follows…
Body posture deductions:
– head at hip level: 0.10
– head at knee level: 0.30
