In the new JO Optional Code of Points they have now added a .1 additional bonus on each apparatus for completing successfully what they deem to be an above and beyond level of difficulty. This bonus has been in place for vault for the last several years and now they are extending it to all of the events.
My daughter is excited she will have this on two events this year and will essentially be starting from a total of 40.2 instead of 40. This can be significant and I would say at the highest levels you will see girls receiving this bonus on all events and then starting with their highest possible score being a 40.4.
This is a game changer and my guess is that we are going to see a big jump in difficulty level at level 10 over the next couple years and even more girls repeating level 9 multiple times.
This bonus only applies to Level 10.
