Trampoline

Discipline Trampoline

The elements of the first routine must be written down on the competition card.
Each of the required elements must be marked with an asterisk.

In the first routine, the gymnast must execute the elements as written on the competition card, otherwise there will be a deduction of 0.1 pts for each change. Any missing required element will result in a deduction of 1.0 pts for each missing element.

The elements of the second routine must be written on the competition card with the difficulty value of each element.

The Judges

Seven judges in the individual competition and eleven judges in synchronised competition, under control of the "Chair of Judge" and his assistant, judge the pass. The athlete will get an A-score for execution and a B-score for difficulty. Five of the judges take care of the execution and the two others of the difficulty.

In synchronised competitions there are four judges judging execution, two judging difficulty and three for synchronisation.

The judges will judge each skill independently.

The Judging

Each skill can be worth 1.0 point in execution, if it is perfect. The judge will deduct up to 0.5 point if the athlete does not make a perfect skill. Reasons for deduction can be loss of height, not the right body position, not pointing toes, not kicking out in time, etc.

The chair of Judges decides how many skills have to be counted and also if there are additional deductions, for steps after landing, for falling to back, front or seat after landing, touching the safetypads, etc.

If no skill is accepted the score is zero, if five skills are accepted the score is 5.0 point minus the deductions from the "Chair of Judge". The maximum execution score for a perfect routine is 10.0 per Judge.

Syncronisation

The score for synchronisation is judged when the two athletes are landing on the trampoline. Each skill can be worth 1.0 point in synchronisation, if it is perfect. This is when the two athletes are landing at the same time, if not the judges will deduct up to 0.5 point for differences in the landing.

Difficulty

The difficulty of each element is calculated on the basis of the amount of twist and somersault rotation with a bonus for completed somersault.
 
Point
Per 1/4 somersault
0.1
Bonus per completed somersault
0.1
Per 1/2 twist
0.1

Single somersault of 360-630 degrees without twist, executed in pike or straight position, will be awarded 0.1 points.
Example
Point
Back somersault piked
0.6
Front somersault with a 1/2 twist - piked (Barani)
0.6

Multiple somersaults of 720 degrees or more, with or without twists, executed in the straight or pike position, will be awarded an extra 0.2 points.
Example
Point
Double back somersault - tucked
1.0
Back in full out - straight
1.4
Triple front with a 1/2 twist - tucked
1.6
Triple front with a 1/2 twist - piked
1.8


During a routine no element may be repeated, otherwise the difficulty of the repeated element will not be counted.


Calculation of the score

The highest and lowest of the five executions scores (A-Score) is deleted and the three remaining are added together and this gives the score for the first routine. For the Second routine the execution is calculated the same way, and the total is then added with the difficulty (B-Score) and this gives the total score for the second routine.

The score for the preliminaries is the sum of the score for the two routines in the preliminary round.

The Competition

Individual competition

The 8 or 10 athletes, depending on the championship, with the highest scores in the preliminaries will go to finals, which start from zero. The scoring in the finals will be made as in the preliminary round.

The starting order in the final is decided by order of merit from the results in the preliminaries, so the athletes with the lowest score will go first. The winner is the athlete with the highest score.

 

If two athletes at any time get the same score in the preliminaries or the final, the tie-breaking rule will decide the ranking.


Team competition

Qualification for the team final is based on the results of the preliminaries. A team consists of three or four athletes, with the three best scores to count in each round.

The five teams with the highest score from the preliminaries will go to the final. The starting order is decided by order of merit, so the team with the lowest score from the preliminaries will go first. All teams will start from zero in the final.

The team-manager has to choose three athletes from the preliminaries to compete in the final, where all passes will count in the final result. The winner is the team with the highest score in the final. If two teams reach the same amount of point, the tie-breaking rule will decide the ranking.
