    I like Mustafina's leotard. And Deng's was a pretty color. The rest are kind of meh. The U.S. ones are a nice color but the bedazzling was overdone.

    I do not like the one sleeve/one bare arm fashion for gymnastics leotards!

    Yes, 0.7 lower.

    She's not the best of fighters... But this will test her. I actually maybe feel a bit of relief....

    Yes, she only does a DTY out of 5.8 instead of the 6.5 Amanar.

    It's only a DTY.

    Those max out at about 15.3.

    It's a serious flaw of the CoP/judging system.

    She did a DTY not an Amanar.

    Komova's score for an Amanar that side steps all the way off the mats: 15.466
    Mustafina's score for a DTY that is pretty much stuck: 15.233

    And this is why this scoring system "blows goats," as coined by Cyn.

    Why is it a flaw in the system to have a less difficult vault worth less points?

    Thanks - I'm still on a bit of a learning curve regarding the scoring...the last time I followed gymnastics closely was before COP with D and E scores.

    Question: On floor these days many girls (and men) are doing little leaps at the ends of their tumbling passes. I know that these days the girls are being encouraged not to take that backward step like they used to. So, are these little leaps choreographed into the routine becuase it is harder to stick a landing??

    It's like the quad controversy in skating. But, it seems to me that, even amongts the Amanars, you don't see that wide of a range in scores. Maroney's scores the other night wasn't all that much higher than others who were doing Amanars.

    The DTY vs Amanar is the gymnastic equivalent of QuadGate in figure skating.

    Can I say amen. I actually heard someone say Mustafina isn't a true AA anymore because she only does a DTY. Now Mustafina does 5 tenths more difficulty than Douglas on bars, so is Douglas not a true AA due to bars.

    The Amanar is going down by 5 tenths supposedly and I say thank goodness. Its one skill and should not be the be end end all.

    I much prefer this DTY from Aliya to that dangerous Amanar that nearly destroyed her career.

    Pretty much yeah.

    Those little leaps can do a lot to disguise landing errors.

    You get some kind of bonus for them too.

    Skating's greatest hit - so far I've heard Carmen, Harem and Pink Panther.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
