Awards

top
  • Unless pressed for time, the top 10 on each event and All Around should be announced during awards.
  • If there is a tie on any event:
    • The individual with the higher All Around score will be read 2nd, e.g. if gymnast 1 and 2 both score an 8.0 on Vault but gymnast 1 has an AA score of 30.5 and gymnast 2 has a higher AA score of 31.75, then gymnast 1 will be announced first, followed by gymnast 2.
    • A place in the top 10 will be taken for each gymnast in the tie, e.g. if gymnast 1, 2 and 3 tie for 10 place, then the next gymnast to be announced will be 7th place, not 9th place.
