Trampoline, Double Mini-Trampoline and Tumbling
Olympic Champion Rosie MacLennan is not competing, but most of the the BIG NAMES in Trampoline will be there.
New for this Olympic cycle, in Trampoline, horizontal displacement will be evaluated by judges using video. If the gymnast’s body touches a zone outside the designed red square center box of the bed, a deduction will be applied. This should make routines safer, scoring more objective.
Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.
UPDATE from Anna:
At Worlds HD deductions will actually be taken by centre of mass in the bed, which does mean there is a chance to be slightly outside a zone and get the lesser deduction. Therefore scores should be slightly higher than when it is judged manually by eyes (and judged by hips).
So far we have found it is not a great separator for total score (i.e. expect the top 20 to score 9.7+ for each routines, and quite a few 10s), but it an exceptional encouragement for safety and control.
