Gymnastics: Breaking Down the D-Score
Artistic gymnastics is one of the most spectacular sports there is; it combines powerful acrobatics with precise dance moves, and it requires rigorous training. One of the reasons it is not as popular as other sports is that it is difficult to understand how the scoring system works. Up until 2005, gymnastics was judged under the 10.0 scoring system. That meant that exercises had a maximum value of 10.00 and deductions of execution were applied to it. Due to the controversy of the judging at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, where the real male artistic gymnastics all around champion, Yang Tae-young collected a bronze medal, and USA's Paul Hamm took, due to a mistake that took 0.1 points off his parallel bars start value, which, at the end of the competition left him in 3rd place. Though later the Gymnastics International Federation admitted that the American gymnast had received the gold medal by mistake, they didn't amend the results. This and other controversies called for changes in the unfair scoring system, they needed to make sure that gymnasts were correctly awarded for the difficulty and execution of their exercises. So in 2006, a new Code of Points was introduced, assigning a value to each skill and changing the way performances were judged, separating the score into D-Score (Difficulty Score) and E-Score (Execution Score). After a few alterations The D-score takes into account the Difficulty Value (DV) or the skills that are performed during the exercise (all of which have a predetermined value), plus the Composition Requirements (CR), which are a series of requirements that are different for each apparatus; plus the Connection Value (CV), otherwise called bonus, which are extra points awarded for connecting 2 or more skills or elements. There is no cap to the D-Score, so it can be as high as the gymnast is able to put together. The E-score is the evaluation of how the gymnast executes the exercise. All E-scores are starting with a 10.0 maximum value and the judges apply deductions for each error the gymnast makes. As with the D-Score, there is a list of all the deductions that can be applied, with the corresponding amount of points that such be subtracted from the 10.0 start value. For beam, these are the D-Score requirements: Only the 8 skills with the highest difficulty are counted towards the DV. Those 8 elements need to be a minimum of 3 dance skills (leaps, jumps,...), 3 acrobatic skills (flic-flacs, somersaults,...) There are 4 Composition Requirements, each has a 0.5 points value, adding up to 2.00 points, as follows:1 connection of minimum 2 different dance elements, 1 being a leap or jump with 180º split, or straddle position360º turn or Rolls/Flairs1 Acro series (min of 2 flight elements), 1 being a saltoAcro elements in different directions (forward/sideward and backward) Connection Value (CV) and Series Bonus (SB) are awarded for direct connectionsSeries Bonus is awarded for connecting 3 or more elements Formulas for direct connections: So, taking all of these into consideration, when you watch the above video, you will understand how the D-Score is awarded.

Happy Birthday, Agnes Keleti!
Today is Agnes Keleti's 102nd birthday. Agnes Keleti is not a name known by too many people, even gymnastics followers are not too familiar with her. However, she is has one of the most amazing runs in the sport and one of the most extraordinary lives, and though, she is not the most famous Hungarian gymnast, that honor belongs to Henrietta Onodi, she is the gymnast with the most Olympic medals from her country. Agnes was born on January 9, 1921, in Budapest, and started doing gymnastics when she was 4; by the time she turned 16, she won her first national gymnastics championship, a feat that she would repeat 9 more times until 1956. She was to join the national Hungarian team that would represent her country in the 1940 Olympic Games that were to take place in Tokyo. However, when WWI broke out, the games were canceled, but nevertheless, Keleti continued her training. In 1941, she was expelled from her gym because she was a Jew (only Arian race gymnasts were allowed to train). As the Nazis invaded Hungary, in order to survive, she had to go into hiding, but her dad and other relatives were taken into a concentration camp by the Nazis. Having heard that married women were not taken to "work" camps, she married Hungarian gymnast István Sárkány in 1944. Keleti bought the identity documents of a Christian girl and she worked as a servant in a small village, which is how she survived the war. Luckily, her mum and sister had also managed to hide and they were saved by Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg. Her dad and the other relatives that had been taken by the Nazis had not been so lucky and had been killed by poisonous gas in the Auschwitz concentration camp. During the winter of 1944-1945, during the siege of Budapest by the Soviet forces, and very close to the end of WWII, Agnes Keleti's mornings were spent picking up the bodies of those who had died and placing them in a common pit. After the war, Agnes resumed her gymnastics training and, in 1946, won the Hungarian national championships again. She qualified for the London 1948 Games, but a torn ligament in her ankle prevented her from competing. Finally, in 1952, she got to compete at the 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki, where she won several medals, including gold on floor (you can see part of that exercise in the video). She was 31 years of age. She competed in the 1954 world championships, where she won gold on uneven bars, silver with her team, and bronze on beam.​ Her greatest gymnastics achievements came in 1956, at the Melbourne Olympic Games, where she won 4 gold medals, and 2 silver medals (in the all around competition, finishing behind Soviet legend Larisa Latynina, and in the team competition). Just before the Olympics started in Australia, on November 4, the Soviets invaded Budapest to squash a popular revolt, so, after the Games, Keleti stayed in Australia and later moved to Israel where she taught gymnastics and she coached the national gymnastics team. In total, Agnes Keleti won a total of 10 Olympic medals, 5 of them gold, and she remains the most successful Hungarian gymnast at the Olympic Games. Happy birthday, Agnes!
