2020 Code of Points – Beam

Gigi spent a week reviewing changes to the 2020 Code of Points on Beam. She wrote those up illustrating many with GIFs.

Must read. It’s the best overview 2020 Beam I’ve seen yet.

Understanding The 2017-2020 CoP In A Very Simple And Detailed Way: Balance Beam

Don’t count on everything in that  post being exactly correct. There are so many changes that I anticipate future clarifications for years to come.

Personally I’m happy that FIG gymnasts no longer feel pressured to do a D dismount as dismount is no longer a 0.5 Special Requirement. Sticking a C dismount will be the best strategy for many around the world.

Upgraded from C to D.
