But in this post, we recall the time judges downgraded a fully rotated Amanar by China's Cheng Fei.

At the team final of the 2006 World championships, Fei competed an Amanar but got credited for a double twisting Yurchenko.

An Amanar was worth a 6.5 D score while a double twisting Yurchenko was worth a 5.8 under the 2006 -2008 CoP.

Here is Cheng's Amanar:

While it is not fully rotated in a perfect sense, it was closer to an Amanar than a double twisting Yurchenko or even a two and quarter twist.

Nonetheless, the CoP is very strict on completing the twists. Here is a screenshot of the 2017-2020 CoP:



What do you think? Were the judges picky or not?
