greater accountability for Gymnastics judges

I was an FIG judge for decades. Always willing to justify my scores to any gymnast or coach.

Over that time in MAG we sometimes published the names of judge scores on each apparatus. Sometimes we didn’t.

Personally I feel judging would be better — more accurate — more objective — if judges names were published with the scores they awarded.

Officials in other sports are far more visible than Gymnastics.

You can see them for NCAA meets on Road To Nationals. For example, if you go to the results page for the Jan-05-2019 Oklahoma – Arkansas meet, and click on the PDF link top left, you get the official score sheet signed by the judges.

Also. Perhaps they could TRY to not to score based on reputation.

Thanks Cordelia.
