Execution TUM

The maximum Execution mark per Execution judge is 10 pts for the completed pass of 8 elements. If the pass is interrupted, the maximum Execution mark is based on the number of elements completed before the interruption of the pass. The judges will add to their scores 2 points for all passes.

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, control, height and rhythm in each element, between 0.1 and 0.5 pts
All deductions are added together, but they will never surpass 0.5 points per sklil.
