Demyanchuk gives points away?!

Did Yana Demyanchuk (UKR) gave one tenth away in her balance beam routine at the Europeans?

This is one of the new rules in the CoP, in order to bring more choreography into the beam routines:

  • More than one 1/2 turn on 2 feet with straight legs throughout exercise. – 0.10 deduction

In my opinion, she did two of these turns. But perhaps the judges saw her first turn as a turn with slightly bent knees?!

Click play or watch her gold medal winning beam routine on YouTube.

    I think she had this deduction at the WOGA Classic this year. The turns look the same to me! Shame to just throw the points out!
