Both my kids have experienced more failures than successes and they have learned to make goals that they have some control over. Do they always reacht heose goals, no but they keep working towrds them. But, If an enire event for a whole level is scoing low during a season, then setting a score goal that won't be met because of that is unrelaistic. A realistic goal is to learn to punch harder, have better shapes etc. Easy to meet? No. Possible for the gymnast to control? Yes. This whole "argument" started when soemone said that long-term it doesn't really matter. This is still true, this is a vault used for a season or two, and, for now, is scoring low for even pretty good ones. In the long-term span of a gyamnast's career it really is not big deal. Short term, sure it might mean this girl never gets her 38 at this level, hoepfully though she is learning a good timer that will lead to a solid, safe flipping vault and higher vault scores in other levels down the road.
