33rd FIG Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships ST. PETERSBURG (RUS)

November 7 - 10, 2018

St. Petersburg Sports and Concert Complex

Competition format

INDIVIDUAL TRAMPOLINE

Trampoline gymnasts perform two routines in the first round of a competition (qualifications). Scores from their first and second routines are added together, forming a total qualifying score. 

In semi-finals and finals, gymnasts perform in opposite qualifying order, meaning the gymnast with the lowest qualifying score performs first, followed by the gymnast with the second lowest qualifying score, and so on. Score-wise, all start with a clean slate. The final rounds are one-and-done. 

 

Individual competition

At the World Championships, the top 24 gymnasts (maximum three per country) qualify to the semifinal, where they perform one routine. The eight top scorers from the semifinal (maximum two per country) qualify for the final, where they perform one routine again.

 

Tie-breaking Rules

In case of a tie in the qualifications, the ranking will first be determined by the higher sum of the E-scores of both routines, then by the higher sum of the H-scores of both routines and then by the higher sum of the T-scores of both routines. If there is still a tie, the tie will not be broken.

In the semi-final, the gymnast with the higher E-score prevails. In case of equal E-scores, the higher H-score prevails, then the higher T-score. If there is still a tie, the tie will not be broken.

 

SYNCHRONISED TRAMPOLINE

Synchronised Trampoline gymnasts (pair) perform two 10-element routines in the qualification round: A “compulsory” exercise consisting of mostly simpler elements, designed to show off the gymnasts’ form and technical mastery of basic skills, and a more difficult “voluntary” exercise loaded with difficult elements. 

Pairs’ scores for the first and second exercises are tallied to give the final score for the qualification round. The top eight synchro pairs (maximum one per country) advance to the final round, where a voluntary exercise is performed again. Highest score wins.

 

Tie-breaking Rules

 In case of a tie at any time during the qualifying or final round, the tie will be broken in the following way:

  1. The pair with the higher sum of Execution scores for both routines prevails.
  2. The pair with the higher sum of the Synchronisation scores of both routines prevails.
  3. The pair with the higher Horizontal Displacement score prevails.

 If there is still a tie, the tie will not be broken.

 

TUMBLING

Tumblers perform two routines, or “passes” during a competition. The choice of elements is left up to the gymnast, but with the exception of basic elements like round-offs, handsprings and whipbacks, no element in either pass can be repeated. However, somersaults will not be considered repetitions if they are preceded by a different element each time.

 

Individual competition

At the World Championships, the top eight gymnasts with the highest combined scores for their two passes advance to the individual Tumbling final, where they perform another two passes. Highest combined score for the two final passes wins.

Only the top two gymnasts per country can qualify to the final round. If there are three or more gymnasts from one country who finish in the top eight in the qualification round, only top two from that country will advance to finals, as will the gymnast who finished 9th, provided he or she is not from a country that has already qualified two into the final. 

 

Tie-breaking Rules

In the event that two gymnasts receive the same score in the qualification round or in the final, the tie will be broken by comparing the Execution scores, and the gymnast with the higher sum of E-scores for both their passes will prevail. If there is still a tie, the gymnast with the higher E-score for his or her second pass prevails. If there is still a tie, the tie will not be broken.

 

 

DOUBLE MINI-TRAMPOLINE

Competition in Double Mini-trampoline involves four “passes” or runs. In the qualification round, each gymnast performs two passes of different elements. The top eight gymnasts with the highest sum total for their passes advances. In the final, gymnasts perform another two passes, again with differing elements. Highest total score wins.

 

Individual competition

At the World Championships, the top eight gymnasts with the highest combined scores for their two passes advance to the individual Double Mini final, where they perform another two passes. Highest combined score for the two final passes wins.

Only the top two gymnasts per country can qualify to the final round in individual competition at the World Championships. If there are three or more gymnasts from one country who finish in the top eight in the qualification round, only top two from that country will advance to the final. 

 

Tie-breaking Rules

In case of a tie in the individual qualifying round and in the finals, the following methods will be applied, in the following order, to break it:

  1.  The gymnast with the higher sum of the E-scores of both passes prevails.
  2. The gymnast with the higher E-score of the second pass prevails.

If there is still a tie, the tie will not be broken.

• 1st place – 5 points

• 2nd place – 4 points

• 3rd place – 3 points

• 4th place – 2 points

• 5th place – 1 point

 

The team with the highest number of points adding all apparatus is declared All Around Team World Champion. Each member and one coach of the winning teams will be awarded with a medal.

 

4. Tie-breaking rules

During qualifications

The tie-breaking rules for the World Championships – Qualifications apply.

 

During the final

In case of a tie in any category, this tie will not be broken and both teams will receive the same amount of points.

 

In case of a tie at any place in the transition between rounds, the starting order will be determined by the ranking from the Qualification Round.

 

If there is a tie after the final event (Synchronised Trampoline Men), the following will apply to determine the winner:

• The team with the highest total score (adding the eight events from finals) will prevail.

• If there is still a tie, the higher ranking from qualifications will prevail.
