I was wondering your opinions, since I hear a lot of people thought so, but I didn't think so when I watched it.
The Chinese girls E scores where all in the 7's with even a few 6's throughout qualifying and finals, so they were definately penalized. I think the only Chinese gymnast who scored an 8(a very low 8) was Tan. I think all the Chinese girls would have benefited from scaling back the tumbling difficulty on floor a little and focusing on execution.Bai's routine was gorgeous (her jumps are just stunning), but the current scoring rewards difficulty and Simone was definitely ahead on that front. I'm no expert, but I actually thought the Chinese team seemed a little over scored on floor. Some of their passes were so low that I literally gasped when they landed.
This is part of it on floor. The changes didn't reduce the standing or posing in the corner. Now the women are just dancing/posing facing diagonally or outward.Maybe he should get rid of the dumb turn out of the corner thing, followed by the "no lunge" thing. He advocated for athleticism, he gets it and then decries it.
