We were at a meet this weekend. During our daughter's floor event the music failed about 8 seconds before the end of her routine. It also did this to her teammate's music and then again to another athlete's music from an opposing team. We were originally of the impression that the athletes simply have to continue through their routine without the music and that's that. However, we were confused when the athlete from the opposing team repeated her floor routine. When the meet was over, my husband and I asked one of the floor judges (whom we are friends with) why the other athlete had been permitted to repeat her floor routine and she said that the other judge had "felt bad" for the gymnast because she was sitting on the sideline crying after she'd finished her floor routine so the other judge actually went over and offered to allow the girl to repeat her floor routine!! The girl ended up getting 1st place on floor and essentially changed the trajectory of the entire meet. We've since learned that coaches can request a re-do when music fails. I'm still unsure why our coach didn't offer this option to our girls but we're a little upset that the judge offered this opportunity to the one athlete from the other team but not to our athletes. Thoughts??
