I have a question....

DD and I have been watching a lot of Womens college gymnastics (Most fun to watch!!) on TV. We watched a men's meet the other day..

Does anyone know why the Women's Progam still uses the JO Scoring system (10.0) but the Men's Program is scoring the FIG System (Difficulty + Excution)?

And is the Women's program planning on changing their scoring?

Thank you!

While I understand the need to elimate subjectiveness in scoring.... I hope the Women's JO Scoring doesnt change from the 10.0 system anytime soon..

There is just something about shooting for that Perfect Ten..............

I have heard a rumor that the Womens USAG is going to that scoring system after the Olympics for level 7-10. It is just something iheard so may not be true. I also hope not as it seems hard to follow and I have just figured out the current system. Hey by the way kristilyn73 we (MVGC) qualified 1 of our 4 Level 8 to Regionals so all the teams are very proud of her. Also DD can cast ot handstand finally!
