  1. I think they’re very hard on bean Judgement, aren’t they? What Is your impression?
    Do you know if there’s any link to watching live?


    • Also, as for what happened with Puerto Rico on vault, Bianca Leon vaulted when the vault scoreboard showed the name Paula Mejias. So Bianca’s vault was listed under Paula, and there’s a zero listed under Bianca. Bianca said to the officials that she thought the scoreboard was broken and that the judges just wanted her to vault and they would fix the problem later.


      • Ohhhhhh weird. We were honestly so confused over here!!! Like to me it just looked like no one vaulted for like 20 minutes and then suddenly the rotation started again lol.
