Just as an FYI brushing the mat or hitting the mat with your feet is only .500.She got her score needed for the compulsory qualifier (needed a 33, she got a 35.4), however she fell just a few points shy of getting her score needed for the optional qualifier (needed a 48, got a 46.150), but her coaches were actually very happy with her optional score since it was her first time at a qualifier and her first time competing in back to back meets. She tapped her feet on her pak, which cost her a point and she fell on beam on her front tuck, which also cost her a point, so if she can fix both of those and add a little more difficulty to her routines she should be able to achieve the score needed to qualify in the optional meet next month at KPAC. Keeping our fingers crossed!!!
No they are listed separately. Brush is listed as .500, feet hitting mat is .500 and then feet hitting the mat as a fall is 1.00.In JO scoring or FIG scoring. I think Hopes uses FIG scoring where falls are a point and brushing the mat equals a fall.
No clue...her coach told us she tapped her feet and that it was a 1.0 deduction....No they are listed separately. Brush is listed as .500, feet hitting mat is .500 and then feet hitting the mat as a fall is 1.00.
I would imagine the distinction is along the same lines as the hands touching the mat vs the hands touching the mat and showing support.
According to the COP it isn’t 1.00 unless she actually fell. You can probably figure out by what you saw which deduction she received. A brush or tap where she kept going likely fell into the .500 category vs tapping her feet and actually stopping.No clue...her coach told us she tapped her feet and that it was a 1.0 deduction....
