WHO will have the next 3-up, 3-count disaster?

UPDATE – Piibunina points out my error in the post below:

Olympic qualification of teams at the 2019 World Championships takes place during the qualification (CI), not during the team final (CIV). CI is still 5-4-3, so there is no danger of 3 up 3 count disaster.

Original post:

Like Italy did within seconds of the start of the Team Final at Europeans. Their first vaulter slipped. This score counted towards team.

Something similar could happen to any team in this format. Or — even worse — they could have an injury during the competition.

This is one reason teams want to rank in the top 3 at Worlds 2018. That’s automatic team qualification to Olympics 2020. They don’t have to risk 3-up, 3-count disaster at Worlds 2019.
