This could be a solution.
Or drop the lowest scoring apparatus and have them do it again
There's no way they'd count the QR score to decide tiebreakers. It's supposed to be 100% "new-life". They may come up with new solutions, but I highly doubt that'll be one of them.
i'm not saying their way is the correct way, that there should be no ties at all. i'm just saying i don't think their reasoning is completely nonsensical.
pollyanna, thank you for taking the time to compile those awesome FX vid links in the other thread.
anyway, i don't think there would be an abandoned baby in the lifetime movie (not abandoned in the trash can!). instead there might be an adopted gymnast whose biological mom comes forward after she wins a medal at the olys. she then says in interviews that finding her mom is better than any medal. shortly after she becomes a spokesperson for family values...

Do people know what pieces of music Afan used for her FX please?

One are from movie killbill and the main music is "Bajofondo - Grand Guignol "
But would you be OK with the D score, then the E score?FWIW, if they have to break ties because of IOC rules then I'm OK with the E score then D score rule.
You can't ignore one entire event. Neither Mustafina or Raisman hit their beams routines even though Aliya's was worse. Raisman is HORRIBLE on bars. She's pretty much a 3 event gymnast.... I don't know why Aly being bad on bars should get a free pass; anymore than Romania should get a free pass because they were bad on bars too....Raisman placed higher than Mustafina in 3 of the events. How does that mean Mustafina had more consistency? I think higher placements in more of the events that shows Raisman is a better all-arounder than Mustafina was that particular night.
Mustafina doesn't have the same difficult as Raisman does on vault and floor but at least her vault and her floor were well executed. The same cannot be said about Aly's bars...
Seriously if being terrible on an event doesn't matter its too bad Alicia and Cheng Fei never just went up there and did giants on the uneven bars. Then people could argue that "they are a better all arounder than people who showed they could compete decently on all of the events.. If Tim Daggett is saying that Raisman's 14.3 was generous, its saying something..
Its like arguing Romania's bars should be ignored because they are so strong on 3 events...All around includes all four...Mustafina doesn't have the same difficulty but at least she can execute well all of the events. This isn't a Shawn situation where Shawn was a decent bar worker and Liukin was able to get by just because bars were ridiculously weighed.
Normally the tie breaking rule would actually have helped Aly, because her bars would be thrown out...Its just this time she had two scores in the low 14s rather than just one score in the low 14s.

You are DEFENDING having the tie breaker be to drop one event entirely! How does that not equal ignoring one entire event? skittl1321 is saying that, if you were to look at higher placements, Aly had the higher placement on 3/4 events which could be a way to indicate that she was consistently better than Aliya that night. That's not ignoring one event, that going with the majority.
Dropping the score of one event entirely is the actual definition of ignoring one event.
I'm in favor of adding all the dropped scores back if taking the prelim score really isn't an option.
In contrast one could argue maybe highest execution would work-that also would have gone to Mustafina.
And once again no I don't think just because Raisman does one extra twist on vault, that makes her a better gymnast than Aliya... In terms of beam I have no doubt Mustafina will be back in form there in a few a months.
