Way to go Lauren! So happy for her and Australian gymnastics!:)
good job lauren that was an amazing performance
Love Lozza! So pleased, she deserved that gold!
I'm very happy for Lauren. Also, on a much less serious note, I really loved her leotard from finals.
I love Lauren, she's a wonderful gymnast and she did a lovely floor routine, but I have to say when they showed her score I was a bit confused. I genuinely thought there were at least 2 other girls - Ferrari and Mustafina - who performed better executed, more difficult routines on the night. Would anyone care to explain how Lauren managed to win over those two? I am really confused.
Lauren's D score(difficulty score) was the highest of all the FX event finalists as I recall. Vanessa Ferrari's was much lower than Lauren's .6 difference from memory. As for Mustafina she had a slightly lower D score .1 or .2 and made some mistakes as well. That said Vanessa's E score (execution score) I believe was the best of all the finalists. Again the details are all from memory so may not be 100% accurate but should be close.
Ferari was best, but that's not the point. She was only a couple tenths better than Chelaru n E score despite clearly being much better. If there was a 0.5 E score difference and the 0.6 difficulty was enough to overcome it, I could buy the result. but the E scores were all clustered with a tenth either side of 9. And the routine execution was not that similar.Judges are not doing the E score properly. Only solution is to start publishing the actual deductions.P.s. Mitchel muscles that wolf turn...
