Judging of olympic gymnastics?

I have to do a power point on the judging procedures of olympic gymnastics, but i'm having a lot of trouble finding a website or any specific information on how the judging takes place and the scoring and such.
Can anyone help me a bit?

"Students should provide a clear, concise explanation of the voting method used by the group/organization/country. Your visual aid should enhance your description and should contain the most recent results to help make your point. References to voting techniques studied in chapter one should be made if necessary, with correct terminology."

Judging for olympic gymnastics is a score that is made up of two seperate scores added together. There is the D score - difficulty score, and the E score - execution score. At the end they are both added together and that is the final score.

D Score - difficulty score

The D score is made up of the difficulty of the routine. There are 3 parts that make up the D score. They are a the element value's, the compsitional requirements and the connection bonus's. All three are added together to get ther D score.

For the element value's. The 8 top skills in the routine are counted (it used to be the top 10, but from 2009 it will just be the top 8). All skills have a letter value. For example.

On floor - some examples
A skills - exemples back tuck, or front tuck, back handsprings,m front handspring, round off, split leap, single turn and so on
B skills - examples - front layout, full twisting baack layout, double turn on toe, straddle jump 1/2 turn, switch split leap.
C skills - examples - full twisting front layout, double back tuck, triple turn on 1 foot, 1 1/2 twisting straddle jump, full twisting leaps.
D skills - example - double back pike, quadriple turn and so on

skills go all the way to G.

For the top 8 skills its

For beam and floor a maximum of 5 of the top 8 skills can be acro, at least 3 have to be dance skills.

The second part of the D score is the compositional requirements. There are 5 on each apparatus and. For each 1 they fulfill they get an extra 0.5 added. So if they have them all they get 2.5 added.

For example the requirements on beam are
1. A D value or above dismount
2. A dance series of at least 2 leaps, jumps or hops and 1 having a 180 degree split.
3. A full turn or more on 1 foot
4. An acro series with at least 2 flight skills, at least 1 being a salto
5. Acro in both the forward/sideways and backwards positions.

Then finally there are connection bonus's of 0.1 and 0.2.

This is the way the D score is worked out for all events except vault For vault every vault just have a difficulty value assigned to it. From the easiest vault which is a front handspring and worth 2.4, to a front handspring to double front tuck which is worth 7.1

The second part of the score is the E score which is the execution score. It is a mark out of 10. Dedudctions are taken for all mistakes. Small mistakes like little wobbles on beam or unpointed toes have a 0.1 deduction. Moderate mistakes like casts too low, or not enough split in leaps are 0.3 deduction. Large mistaked like really bent arms and legs are 0.5 deductions and a fall is a full mark deduction. it used to be only 0.8 for a fall but as of this year it is now a full mark.

Do you have to do this topic? I'm just asking because it is REALLY complicated. Like reeeally complicated. Gymnastics is ruled by the code of points laid out by the International Gymnastics Federation (commonly known as FIG, it is shortened from the French which is why it is FIG and not IFG). There are 10 levels and then Elite which is Olympic and international level.

Talking ONLY about Elite which is probably what you are most familar with from watching on TV. Ok this is really complicated. The score is the addition of two scores, execution (falls, bent legs, bobbles, etc) and difficulty. The code of points lays out exactly how much of a deduction you take for each bent leg or bobble or misstep or whatever mistake you can think of. The Code also includes every move ever invented in the history of gymnastics and its "value" or difficulty, lettered A (easiest) through super E (hardest). It also includes the different combinations of skill you can do to earn extra difficulty points.

So 4 judges watch each routine. 2 are working out of 10.0 and looking ONLY at the execution score. The other 2 are marking down each skill (which are all given an international symbol) and then adding up the difficulty score. The scores from each pair are averaged and then added up for the final score.

That was the briefest of summaries. It is really really complicated. Search for the FIG code of points and you will find info. Here is a link to a FIG website.
