Not read all the replies but my gymnasts definately don't wear the right leotard. I mean, I know they aren't perfect, but really!!!
Last comp, my gymnast did a bar routine as nice as I've ever seen her do it. She had straight arms in her kip, a horizontal cast, straight arms in the bhc, then squat on catch, long hang kip with straight arms, pike on with straight legs and stuck the undershoot dismount. She scored well, but got the lowest score in her group 10.8, vs 11s. One of the girls in our group missed both of her kips, causing two 0.5 deductions. plus 1 fall (1 mark each), but still scored higher than my gymnast! Now that doesn't add up! She was from a club who produced a British Champion last year. The same gymnast did the most disgusting vault - arched on and off a handspring. My gymnast did a decent, not perfect handspring and scored less.
It shows when our gymnasts make national finals and score better than they do regionally (although they are lucky to make the national final in the first place!)
It also shows when one of our gymnasts moves to another club a couple of weeks before a competition, competes the routines we gave her but in a different leo and wins the comp! I'm not saying that she wouldn't have won with us, but I very much doubt it, since she came well down the rankings at her previous comp with us!
It really riles me if you hadn't guessed!
