Recommended Posts

overall men's competition was way much more interesting and worth watching than women's competition

I don't like this at all, I would use the qualification result as tiebreaker.

Simply China took the teams gold with a very very small margin , so they gave gold today for Russia in AA when there were very close competition , it was very predictable for me even before Routeng started his routine

Yep. Even using placement points or something (like 1 for the highest score on an apparatus, 2 for the 2nd score and so on) would seem more fair than letting the absolute highest score decide, considering on some things it's relatively easier to get a higher score..

It's a tie!  But Dalaloyan wins with the highest sum of the final apparatus scores. ( add the total of the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 of the highest final apparatus) 

 

Wait, it's not the highest individual score that counts? Edit, just read it's something else entirely :d

But the FIG breaks ties by dropping the gymnast's lowest event score and taking the execution scores of the remaining five events. Whoever has the highest execution total wins the tie.

Nope. It's the sum of the 5 highest scores. Not confusing at all. :p

This seems like rather poor English either on my side or in the rules, but what's "the highest sum of the final apparatus scores"?

 This is from FloGymnastics.

"But the FIG breaks ties by dropping the gymnast's lowest event score and taking the execution scores of the remaining five events. Whoever has the highest execution total wins the tie".

According to FloGymnastics rule number 1 does not exist because they take rule number 2 in account?...

 

This is how I understand it. There are 6 apparatus in the final. If two gynmnasts are tied. This happens:

 

Add the 5 highest scores the gymnast has scored in the final.

(Dalaloyan and Ruoteng, delete their worst score)

Add the 5 other scores.

Dalaloyan final score, with worst score deleted: 74,198 points

Ruoteng final score, with worst score deleted: 73,465 points

 

I.e Dalaloyan wins gold.

This is Russia’s first gold of the World Championships in men’s all-around event in almost 20 years. Last time a Russian gymnast won gold in this event was at the 1999 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships and it was won by Russian gymnast Nikolai Kryukov

Even counting two falls, Biles is the world champion 1.693 ahead of Mai Murakami. Yes, she deserved the gold medal even with the falls, but she was slightly overscored on floor. Not that it would have made any difference, actually.
