FIG MAG ‘low landing’ deduction

From FIG MTC Newsletter December 2022.

Low Landings

The MTC has also become concerned for the safety of the gymnasts with exceptionally low landing positions on all apparatus. A low landing is defined as the hips below the knees, which should be deducted 0.5 for technical error. (Article 9.4, Other Technical Errors)

In the example below the gymnasts’ hips are below the knees, 0.5 deduction.
