Ebee Price – 10.0 Bars

That’s the score EVERYONE gave (including Greg Marsden) … aside from the judges.

… In scoring news, it’s March. That’s all you need to know. The judges felt like they had permission to start throwing out the 10s like candy again, to least to everyone who isn’t named Elizabeth Price. …

… the craziest scores weren’t the 10s but unjustified 9.925s and 9.950s that pushed the totals up and made the 10s almost necessary. …

Balance Beam Situation

Many feel Ebee is the girl to beat in the AA at Championships 2016.

Gabby’s incorrect Bars D-score

At American Cup Gabby was awarded 6.5 D-score in the official results.

On Papa Liukin I saw a comment from A Houstonian GymNerd:

While this would have been correct with her intended routine, she inserted a stalder between her Endo ½ and the Shap ½, thus taking away 0.1 CV.

In-bar full (E)-piked tkatchev (E)-Pak(D) 0.3CV
In-bar ½ (D)-Endo ½ (D)-Stalder ©-Chow ½ (E) 0.1 CV
In-bar (D)
DLO (D)
Eight elements: DDDDDEEE = 3.5
CV = 0.4
EGR = 2.5

D-score = 6.4

Papa Liukin

Judges at the 2012 Pacific Rim called that Vault an Amanar. The worst judging I can recall in many, many years. There was no correction. No reprimand to the judges. 😦
