The vagaries of gymnastics scoring 

If the landing comprises approximately 30% of the work of vaulting and only 5-10% of the work of an uneven bars or balance beam routine, a botched landing on vault probably should be penalized more harshly than a botched landing in one of the other events.

As it is, Alicia Sacralicious Sacramone finished 4th in the vault finals, behind a Chinese girl who landed one of her vaults on her knees and a 30-year-old German man. So rigged.
