Synchronized Swimming ==> The final score = Technical Merit Score (= Execution 40% + Synchronization 30% + Difficulty 30%) + Artistic Impression Score (= Choreography 60% + Music Interpretation 30% + Manner of Presentation 10%). The E/D ratio is 1.33. (http://swimming.about.com/gi/o.htm?z...26Itemid%3D119)
Women's floor exercise ==> The final score = Difficulty Score (= Difficulty Value + Composition Requirements + Connection Value) + Execution Score (= Approximately 70% Execution + Approximately 30% Artistry). According to the newest rules, the number of elements that count towards the D-score is limited to 8 (each worth 0.7 maximum for the highest level). Maximum composition requirements score = 2.50. After adding the connection value and all that, the D-score ceiling is about 10 points. And the E/D ratio is about 0.7 (http://issuu.com/2008agwc/docs/01-1_...2012__english_).
Figure skating ==> What's the E/D ratio in figure skating? 15%? 30%? Why so low compared to 70%, 130% or even 200% in other artistic sports? Yes, each sport is different, but this is my big question: Why should execution weigh so little in figure skating?
