Beam Scoring: Montreal vs Doha

Montreal was stupid. At the peak meet of the season judges suddenly began applying the code rules on fluidity more rigorously. I felt it was very unfair to the gymnasts.

Breaks in the flow were deducted more:

Adjustment – 0.1

Pause (2 sec)  -0.1

Judging geeks should check stats on Score For Score:

Beam Scoring: Montreal 2017 vs Doha 2018

Judges have been slightly tougher than at meets earlier in the season, but it’s not been super severe as it was in Montreal.

AND gymnasts have been much more fluid on Beam since Montreal.
