The 6.0 scoring system was one of the worst scoring system in the history of sports so :P

But the 6.0 scoring system only determined the places (and judges places were more important anyway) while the places determind the final ranking.

 

Brian Orser won both short & free in Sarajevo but only took silver since he fiished 7th in compulsory figures.

Sports climbing? Amazing. They should have all three events at the Olympics.

 

The sports climbing combined event? That might actually be the worst event in the Olympics across both summer and winter games.

Yeah, it's clear they HAVE to separate the speed speciallists from boulder experts. With only one typical speed event of the three, those speciallists have no medal chance for the combined.

They already do if for Paris 24 ;) Next step is divide boulder from lead, I hope.

Makes U wonder why they didn't do it for Tokyo? It's damn obvious this system is totally unfair from the scratch? :rolleyes:

I think it's one of the usual Bach's IOC bullshit. Young and urban sports, with totally casual formats, without in the least thinking about athletes. They probably also wanted to keep the quotas low

Well, I enjoyed the lead as ever, but some really annoying OBS commentary.

 

"If he (Schubert) wins this, he will potentially get a bronze." What potentially? Math is clear. Bronze would have been his with 1.00 from lead.

 

Not sure what was his angle there, but he for sure ended up confusing the streaming audience.

Disagree. It was very exciting for neutral audience. :p
