Can we recognize Ellie Black for bringing energy, expression, and musicality on floor?
If Jade had theoretically hopped off the beam when she noticed the drip during the team final, would she have been penalized for it? Would that be considered an equipment malfunction that would constitute a re-do?
I want to preface this to say I"m not criticizing the athletes, bc they are all amazing....this is a JUDGING question/comment...I'm seeing soooo many ppl on Twitter saying Jess was overscored and Ellie, Jade or even Alice should've been bronze. I'd love for you to do a deep dive as much as possible on E scores from today and do you agree or disagree. As much as I love Ellie, I do often feel like her E scores are high. There's a lot of 'feet and knees' in her gymnastics. Same with Jade. I felt Jess was pretty clean on floor. Is Ellie's 8.333 E on floor more or less outrageous than Jess's 8.4 E?!? Should Ellie have had the highest E on bars of the top 10?!? Who should've been highest E on beam? Jess won that one and that didn't feel quite right. Discuss! 🙂
With Rebecca kind of being the 'Simone' of this quad, with huge D and E, I disagree that Jade chose the correct strategy today in playing it safe on beam and not doing her series. She does not have a strong enough E score capability to sacrifice D score. UB and BB are 'weak' for her, she has to go for it to get on the podium on the World stage.
I can’t with the BBC commentators anymore. I honestly don’t know how Christine puts up with Matt and Craig, they are the absolute worst.
I made my parents watch the entire competition and by the end they too were shouting at the tv telling them to shut up. What is it with tv commentators?!
@damien-bird I agree with you re: Ellie. I can only assume she is getting minimal deductions for flow, rhythm, expression, etc, that counterbalance the deductions for lack of leg extension & toe-point. Ditto Jessica Gadirova on beam, who - apart from the arm wave on the wolf turn and the step-back on a v high dismount - was pretty solid.
That said, some of the comments re: Jessica Gadirova's E-scores and judging bias were awful. It was especially disappointing to see them from high-profile commentators who should know better than to further encourage the hideous pile-on that grew after the AA final.
