It's good to make sure the matting is good (not too empty, as the old ones get esp. from the boys' landings!!) and in good positions - better to just ignore those couple few that say it's being picky, wave your hands, say 'ya ya ya' lol, and put the mats where it is good for the landings!!
Like the former competitive gymnast Faith Wagner knows :
[quote]The Neenah gymnast made a solid landing off the uneven bars at the 1991 WIAA regional competition, but the floor matting separated, causing her heel to hit the unforgivable gym floor.
