“Wondering if the FIG could change the floor rules so that at least one forward and backward element MUST count towards the D score. I feel like some gymnasts are still missing the point about the forward tumbling requirement and I want the floor winner to be versatile.”

Aleah Finnegan’s Silivas and Double Arabian + Stag Jump

“Realistic floor routine for Aliya Mustafina 2019: Double Arabian + Stag jump, Full twisting double tuck, Double Tuck, 1 ½ Twist to 1/1 Twist; Switch Ring Leap + Split Leap, Double y-turn, Triple turn. E, E, D, D, C, C, C, C (3.0), CR: 2.0, CV: 0.1. Drumroll please… 5.1 D-Score.”

“Since there is no rule (or is there?) about which diagonal must be used for the first tumbling pass, how is it that a sixteen-year-old Laurie ended up in THE corner that forced her to basically twerk in the judges’ faces? I don’t think she came up with that idea herself.”

“Elisabeth Seitz’s floor feels completely NCAA, and I love it.”

“Unofficial rule of gymnastics: At some point in her floor routine, a part of the gymnast’s body other than the soles of her feet must touch the ground as part of her choreography. (Hips, knees, stomach, back, etc.)”
