I’ve been thinking about this for a while. There are some rules that I wish were part of gymnastics and a rule I wish was changed
I wish that there was a rule that would penalize gymnast that spit on their grips. How many gymnast do a vault after they’ve spit on their grips. Then think about how many go after them and could come in contact with that. I really wish there was a rule against this especially with Covid going on. I’ve seen plenty of gymnast use a spray battle to wet their hands/grips. Spit is not necessary.
Now someone correct me if my memory is wrong but is there now are was there a rule that wraps like on the ankles or knees or where ever on the body had to be flesh toned? With that in mind I’ve always wondered why they didn’t make this a rule in regards to socks/shoes that gymnast wear. I know that I’ve seen some gymnast wear these so they are available. So if the wraps have to be flesh toned why not require socks/shoes to be also?
Lastly a rule I wish they would change is the no doing part of your exercise while waiting on the podium. There are so many instances where a gymnast is waiting a ridiculous amount of time because the judges are dealing with an inquiry or there is a computer problem. It’s not the gymnast fault so what’s so bad about practicing a couple of jumps while waiting to do beam. This has always bugged me for some reason.
So do you have a rule that you wish they would make or change?
