Trofeo Citta de Jesolo 2011 – Results

March 19, 2011

The Russian gymnasts do not look happy...

The senior US team (232.250) not only won over Italy (212.800) and Russia (210.200) but also sweeps the all-around podium (McKayla Maroney (58.850)Jordyn Wieber (57.700), and Alexandra Raisman (57.400)) and places first on every event at the 2011 Trofeo Citta de Jesolo (VT – McKayla Maroney, UB – Bridgette Caquatto, BB – Alexandra Raisman, FX – Gabrielle Douglas).

Carlotta Ferlito as the best non-USA-allarounder placed 5th behind Douglas. Amanda Jetter unfortunately injured her ankle on VT. And who thought, Jordyn Wieber wouldn’ t win this competition!? Apparently, she had problems on FX (12.800). So Maroney who scored 16.000 (!) on VT with a 9.5 D-Score could defeat Wieber.

Interesting to see only five D-Scores higher than 9.0 – all on vault and all for the US team.

The junior USteam also won not only the team competition with 233.050 points (Russia 2nd – 220.500, Italy 3rd – 214.750), but dominated the all-around (Kyla Ross - 58.750, Madison Kocian - 57.750, Katelyn Ohashi - 57.700, Lexie Priessman & Anastasia Grishina 4th) and the event finals (VT – Lexie Priessman, BB - Kyla Ross, FX - Katelyn Ohashi and UB – Russia’s Anastasia Grishina), too.

ESP – GBR – GER – NED – SUI – Results

March 19, 2011

Chuso, Bui, Jarosch, Tolle, Hausch, Hill, Hindermann

Germany (211.00) won over Spain (208.95), Great Britain (205.30) and Switzerland (202.30) at the friendly meet between teams of the four countries and single gymnasts from the Netherlands today at the German club TuS 1861 Chemnitz-Altendorf which celebrates its 150th birthday this year!

In the all-around, Celine Van Gerner (54.80) defeated Giulia Steingruber (53.10), Nadine Jarosch (52.90) and Lisa-Katharina Hill (52.80).

Oksana Chusovitina only competed on VT (14.95/14.40) and BB (13.55), Kim Bui repeated her good UB routine from Cottbus and earned 14.00. Unfortunately, a lot of falls kept the scores lower than 13 points. Elisabeth Seitz and Beth Tweddle both didn’t compete (Seitz competes tomorrow in the UB final in Paris. Where Tweddle is? – I have no idea.).

I’ll post complete results and more when they are published.

Chinese Judging Affair – Bin and Stoica speak out

March 19, 2011

An excellent article on IG informs us about the newest statements concerning the Chinese judge who falsified an E-score at the FX EF at the Asian Games last year.

Both, the Chinese judge (D-score) Shao Bin and the Romanian FIG Men’s Technical Committee President Adrian Stoica, explained their behavior.

Shao Bin changed the score because of unfair judging. In his opinion and in the opinion of Korean D-score judge Nam Seung Ku, China’s Zhang Chenglong performed better than Korea’s Kim Soo Myun. He blames Stoica and the FIG technical committee for accepting and approving the changed score in the first place and can’t understand why they accuse him a couple of months later of changing the score illicitly. Watch both FX routines here. Did Chenglong really perform better?

“Also, as a Chinese judge, how can I be callous when the issue affected a Chinese athlete?” Shao said. “I changed the score not for a gold medal, which does not mean too much as we’ve already got so many golds, and we can have many ones other than this, but I have to protect the gymnasts’ performance and protect their interests. Do you know why every federation sends judges to the meet? It is because every judge represents not only the Asian Gymnastics Union but also the gymnasts. Preventing them from being robbed is also our duty.”

Adrian Stoica defends his decision to accept the score in the first place. Apparently he didn’t have a choice. Because of a lack of judges and especially a lack of balance in the judges group (China had more judges than every other country) and the judging system the problem on FX occured.

In my position as President of the Superior Jury I immediately acted, together with Huang Liping by trying to revert to the original judge’s scores, but unfortunately the scoring system used did not recorded the original scores, but only the final scores published on screens. Not having the trace of scores, we were obliged to accept the final published score, but even in this case – it is true without clear evidences, I consider such an attitude unacceptable for an FIG International brevetted judge.

Stoica’s statement is from January 2011, so he doesn’t answer directly to Bin’s opinion about the unfair judging. Read everything about the judging affair on International Gymnast.
