A Skills: The lowest level of difficulty rating for gymnastics skills other than moves of no value.Â For example, front and back handsprings are rated as “A” level skills by the F.I.G. (International Gymnastics Federation).
Amplitude: In gymnastics, this term refers to height, distance and full extension in the execution of a particular skill. In general, the higher the or bigger a skill is performed, the better the amplitude and the resulting score. Historically at times, the FIG code has given bonus for amplitude.
10.0: The highest possible and most desired routine/execution score for gymnasts to achieve on a single routine.Â In the past and perhaps in the future, at least for international gymnastics, execution scores are scored out of a 10.0 andÂ difficultyÂ scores are added in.
