I guess the feet brushing the floor is deducted like a fall then.

How great for Adlerteg to win a medal. :)

It should be. The Chinese cost Tan the gold when they had her start out on the law bar. I think maybe expecting Komova to go 12 for 12 was a bit much.

They probably have Tan start out on the low bar for the sake of variety. If she didn't, she'd spend like 95% of her routine on the high bar.

Well that's how most Chinese routines are constructed. :lol: She's guaranteed 5tenths off for every dead hang. (now personally I think girls she be made to be on the low bar at least twice) but now that they aren't made to the Chinese need to take advantage.

The open ended scoring system has spelled wonders for China and now Russia and not so much for Romania (and coming the USA)

That's because they code-whored the 10.0 system, which was a deductive system - easier routines with less room for deductions. How else would Gina Gogean end up with so many medals? (To her credit, Gogean was doing really interesting things early on, like a full-in on beam, but I think she got beaten down by the medals, medals, medals strategy of the post-revolution Romania.)

Well that was a whole point off for that brush judging by the score. Still 3 golds for Komova.

Brushing the mat is a 0.5 deudction; hitting the mat with your feet is 1.0. It looked like a brush to me. Of course there were additional technical errors on the skill as well which add up.

How did the other EF go? I see Komova won vault and I think from your posts she won bars with a mistake.

I will NOT miss these commentators!!!! So Abad was more of a dark horse last night but he's been out-darkhorsed by the Turkish and Mongolian gymnasts winning silver and gold on vault. Erm ok :lol:

Madeline Gardener crashed during the 'uneven beam' final apparently.

These commentators are probably a riot if you're drunk or high. :lol:

Tan pretty much perfect on beam aside from a small step on her landing. 15.550!

Yep, Komova's not gonna win this one I don't think. Isn't her D score a 6.100 to Tan's 6.300?

Yeah, she isn't. And I thought Tan got a 6.5 but I'm totally half-asleep so I probably am totally wrong :lol:

D=6.300 and E=9.25 so 15.550 total :)

Math is too hard this early :drama:

Adlerteg falls of beam; Gomez Porras scored a 14.100.
