Individual Event Specialist Awards in Optional Competitions

Individual Event Specialist Awards

Q:  How do I handle awards when an individual specialist is in the optional competitions?

A:  This can be handled easiest by having the coaches be responsible to tell the meet directors at check- in or on the registration form that there is a specialist in the meet. The scoring person will have to be aware that this gymnast would receive a duplicate award as the all- around gymnast. For example, gymnast A, AA gymnast, gets a second place on beam and gymnast B , the individual beam specialist, gets a second place on beam. BOTH gymnasts are awarded duplicate awards. Please read pages 35 and 52 in Rules and Policies to assist with this rule.
