This is an amanar

For real!







Went back and watched the eurosport feed. Apologies that you can't see her feet, but it's still obvious, she is quite clearly NOT all the way around. Is it any wonder Berger is pissed.

Edit: According to John Geddert, the d-score panel credited this as a DTY, as is correct. But the head judge overruled it and declared it an amanar. Who is the head judge? Nellie Kim. Isn't she Russian too? Well, Soviet anyway. Hasn't she done this before? Yes, this isn't the first time by any means that she has helped a Russian gymnast. Why is she still around? Who knows!! But, credit to the judges anyway who knew what they were seeing.
