            We use to see thin girls doing great things in gymnastics as the great Nadia Comaneci.... But it's still difficult to believe that Biles is able to do all those great tricks with this body. And as a matter of fact, I think that she is the greatest ever....

              Good job on body shaming🙄🙄 she has muscle and is healthy! Maybe society should ditch these outdated and dangerous beliefs that thin is the only way to be a good athlete!! This is why so many young female athletes and up with eating disorders and injuries!!

            She´s really good, no doubt about it! But, honestly I haven´t still seen anyone like Nadia Comaneci, no one to replace her, no one like her

                Eakers difficulty still trumps Biles. She needs to bring back front with a half turn to compete for the gold vs Eaker and the Chinese champion.

                Can someone explain to me why they need to/ get scored on the ‘dance/artistic’ section. How much of the total % does it make up and why would they get scored on that since none of the males are required to ‘dance’ ? Thanks

                  There is ALOT of dance requirements on beam such as: must have side ways dance 3+ steps, must go up on relave and your back, torso or chest must touch the beam, also only one half turn on 2 feet can be used, don't know if this helps at all but🤔 ...

                  There is no % or score exclusively for "dance/artistry". There is the Difficulty score (open ended, all the skills in the routine added up) and the Execution score (starting from a 10 and deducting whatever the gymnast did wrong, f.e. flexed feet, wobbles, bend knees, lack of height and so on). So in this case Simone got a difficulty of 6.2 and an execution of 8,5 which adds up to the final score of 14.7. Dance elements (turns/split leaps etc) have always been part of the sport and are required in a gymnasts routine to show that one has mastered a variety of skills, not just fliiping ones. Every event has different "composition requirements" which dictate which kinds of elements must be done in a routine and usually it's a mix of tumbling and dance skills.
                  So while dance elements are present in the difficulty score and deducted from in the execution score, there is no seperated score for that.
                  Choreography on beam (like arm waving and posing) is not judged by itself, but gymnasts can get a rhythm deduction for lack of flow in the execution score if they stand too long on the spot doing nothing. That's why they pose and wave while focussing on the next skill.
                  As for the men, it's true they dont have the same dance elements, but they have a lot of holding elements and splits to balance with all the tumbling. Moreover, men's and women's gymnastics are not the same. Otherwise guys would be doing beam and women would do rings and pommels.
                  I hope I have explained it well enough :)

                      We won't be seeing the double double again until World's qualification IMO; probably not the triple, double either. No need to now that she knows she can successfully compete them.

                                    Two flips + Two twists which many elite gymnasts do not even perform on floor, she does as dismount off a 4 inch wooden beam
