I'm a prep op and during this last meet, I did most of my routine really well but then on the last pass I totally messed up (compared to usual-usually the round-off bhs back tuck is no problem for me). I barely landed my back tuck because it was so low and I'm sure it had other problems. Yet I got a 9.0 because the rest of it was really good. I'm wondering what my score could have possibly what is the deduction for lack of height?

Hi Juni,

According to the Junior Olympic Code Of Points, Floor Exercise under Category C (Large Faults) lists: Insufficient height of salto elements - Up to 0.30 pt. deduction.

Category D (Very Large Faults) lists: 1) Support on mat with 1 or 2 hands: 2) Fall on mat to knees or hips - Up to 0.50 pt. deduction.
