Execution DMT

The maximum Execution mark per Execution judge is 10 pts for the completed pass of 2 elements and 7 pts for interrupted pass of 1 element. The judges will add to their scores 8 points for completed passes of 2 elements and 6 points for interrupted passes of 1 element.

Judges evaluate the execution of each element in the range 0.0 to 0.5 points and the stability after completed pass, according the following indications :

a) Lack of form, height and control in each element, between 0.1 and 0.5 pts
All deductions are added together, but they will never surpass 0.5 points per skill.

b) Lack of stability after the dismount
Only single deduction for the greater fault is applied. The deductions are not applicable in the case of interrupted pass.

Fault / Mistake Deduction per E judge
1. Not standing still in an upright position and showing stability for approximately 3 (three) seconds 0.1-0.3 pts
- movement of arms while standing (ex. circle) 0.1 pts
- step(s) or bounce(s) 0.1-0.3 pts
- not standing upright 0.1 pts
- standing with feet apart or more than shoulder width 0.1 pts
- turning to the judges before being totally stabilized 0.1 pts
Please note:
The deduction is not connected to the length of the step or the bounce, but to the amount.
When a step is taken (deduction 0.1 pts), coming back with the same foot to a stable upright position is not considered to be a stepping deduction.
2. After landing, touching the DMT or landing zone/area with one or both hands 0.5 pts
3. After landing, touching with or falling to the knees, hands & knees, front, back or seat on the landing area 1.0 pt
4. Assistance from a spotter after landing 1.0 pt
5. After landing in the landing area, leaving the landing area, or touching outside the landing area or touching the floor with any part of the body or falling against the DMT 1.0 pt


Remark : If the gymnast forgets to stand still and leaves the landing area within approximatively three (3) seconds of landing the E-judges will decide whether this was due to lack of stability (deduction 1.0 pts), or merely that he forgot to stand still (deduction 0.3 pts).
