I some what lost respect for japanese team now, i wanted Uchimura to redeem himself. However, now i am not so sure.

Why the team? It's the judge's error. :confused:

I thought Jordyn was VERY classy in defeat. ;) Can she help it if her coach and that crazy Romanian claimed all sorts of wuzrobbing?

Excuse me, but who is the crazy Romanian ?

Because it is not clear at all that Uchimura deserved to be credited for that dismount. Looked like a fall to most who saw it.

I think Pollyanna is reffering to Bela K.

Yeah but the error was to give in to the protest. IMHO

Yes but once the appeal went in the judges had to review the routine and could do it in slo-mo and they determined that he did hold the handstand and dismount properly - even if it was pretty awful and scrappy. Unfair it may appear but all legal and by the rules.

I realize I know so little about gymnastic. How does the scoring system work? Is there an element score + a sort of "GOE" ? So they could actually have considered the dismount as valid but with a bad score?

Only when he's not embarrassing us. When he is, he's the crazy Romanian. :lol:

There is a difficulty score ('D' score) and an execution score ('E' score). They can also receive neutral deductions for things like going over time or stepping out of bounds. All three are added together for the final score. The dismount is a required element on PH and it must pass through a handstand position for it to be counted. Originally, Uchimura received no credit for his dismount in either the D score or as a neutral deduction, I'm not sure which, and also got dinged on his E score. The protest gave him back the points on his D score but not on the E score.

Right. But that error is the judges, not Uchimura's. He didn't give himself that score.

When is he ever NOT embarrassing us?

One of my guy friends asked me about something Bela said about the women and I told him that, whatever Bela says, you should assume the opposite is true. So he created the hashtag #MistrustTheMoustache which I think is fabulous.

For me it's the opposite. I'm Romanian and I only think of him as Romanian when in relation to Nadia. On his own, not so much. As for Martha, not even Nadia can save her. In conclusion, you can keep both of them, anytime!:D
