should Alicia be penalized 0.1?

Did the World Vault Champion land …

… in the Corridor, but close to the corridor line.

If so, that’s a 0.1 deduction.

Screen grab from this video of her Rudi in Finals.

Personally, I think not. That 0.1 penalty has not often been taken in the past. Was not taken for other gymnasts in Rotterdam much more off line.

And the wording in English is vague. It should say “one foot on the line”, or something specific.

In that Final that Alicia Sacramone was easily best.

I’m sure we’ll hear other opinions.
