I don’t really know much about how 4a and soloham in particular is scored. Before I saw the freestyle I was thinkin maybe there were too many repeat elements since 3 minutes of soloham is a lot but he had a lot of new soloham stuff and different elements and tricks.
Maybe it’s cuz soloham takes a little longer to set up so it’s some time wasted between each throw or trick and that added up with 3 minutes of it. But half of Reis freestyle was soloham too and he clicked pretty high
In any case I think he was definitely the most skilled 4a player in the field and this might actually be something worth looking into for the judging system.
I have a feeling he had to have known this would or at least might’ve happened though. I’m sure part of the reason he made his FS full soloham was for the wow factor and just making history rather than to just straight up win.
