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.
TYPES OF COMPETITION
• Team competition –
At the World Championships, each gymnast performs two passes in the qualifying round. The best three scores for both the first and second passes are added together, generating the team score. The top five teams advance to the final, where three gymnasts compete another two passes, with every score counting toward the team total. Highest team score wins.
There is no team competition at The World Games.
• 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.
THE TWO-PER-COUNTRY RULE
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 best two from that country will advance to the final.
WHAT IF THERE’S A TIE?
In case of a tie in the qualification or final round at the World Championships, the following criteria will be applied in the following order to break it:
- The gymnast with the higher sum of the E-scores of both passes prevails.
- The gymnast with the higher E score for the second pass prevails.
If there is still a tie, the tie will not be broken.
