Biles, Whitlock, Tinkler & Landi To Judge Superstars Of Gymnastics
Simone Biles, Max Whitlock, Amy Tinkler and Laurent Landi will form the panel of four judges for the Superstars of Gymnastics, taking place at The O2, London on Saturday, March 23rd.
Biles and Whitlock will perform in both sessions of the event and take to the panel to rate performances of the other gymnasts taking part in the Superstars of Gymnastics. Athletes have the freedom to devise and perform their own routines and judges will score out of 10 based on flair, creative choreography, execution and engagement with the live crowd at The O2.
Each apparatus will have its own leaderboard with a winner on each piece determined by the highest combined score on that apparatus.
Biles and Whitlock will be joined on the judging panel by renowned coach Landi, a former French gymnast who is now Biles’ Head Coach. Essex-based Tinkler, who claimed floor bronze at the Rio Olympics in 2016, will complete the line-up.
The Superstars of Gymnastics will showcase an exhibition of the very best talent in gymnastics over two sessions live on Sky Sports at The O2, London
