    Behind The Decision: Why NCAA Gymnasts Are Taking The COVID Year

    Oct 27, 2021

    In June 2016, Alyssa Baumann’s dream of competing at the Olympics was torn apart — literally. While training on uneven bars, Baumann injured her elbow, tearing ligaments and muscles. The injury caused her to withdraw from Olympic Trials.

  7. Most Difficulty In The 2018 Super Six: Floor Edition

    Most Difficulty In The 2018 Super Six: Floor Edition

    May 22, 2018

    For the third installment in our series on the most difficulty in the 2018 NCAA Super Six, we're taking a look at floor exercise. Floor scores are calculated similarly to bars and beam scores: Gymnasts start from a 9.5 and add in difficulty value and connection value in order to get to a 10.0 start value. Gymnasts can add difficulty by performing "E" skills (worth 0.20) and "D" skills (worth 0.10).

    Today, we are taking another look at which teams had the most difficulty in their lineups at the Super Six championships, focusing this time on balance beam. As we mentioned in our previous look at the uneven bars, gymnasts start from a 9.5 difficulty level on bars, beam, and floor, and they are required to add bonus points to get to a 10.0 start value.
