Clearly FIG rules reward difficulty too much relative to execution. There’s too much incentive to chuck double fronts and Yurchenko triple twist despite a very low chance of landing safely. I’m embarrassed for FIG WTC. The E-score judges are ranking, not judging. Ranking in a very small range.

One thought on “Vault: Biles, Paseka, Steingrueber”

  1. I agree. They need to increase the severity of deductions for vault.

    It’s not just the double fronts that were a mess. There were stacks of very bad leg form on many of the WAG twisting vaults also. I thought Paseka was trying a new Stalder entry vault on one her her attemps, her legs were so far apart over the table.
