What kind of competitions can I create in Elevien?

We support every competition type and size — whether it is a training session with a few gymnasts from the same club or a complex competition with hundreds of competitors, multiple disciplines, categories and rotations. 

Here are the three main types of competitions that can be fully covered in Elevien:

  1. Offline competitions – traditional, existing format of meets and competitions. They can be fully covered in Elevien with video recordings and scores of each gymnast’s performance, as well as final results. Here is one great example of how it is done in Elevien.
  2. Hybrid competitions – a combination of in-person and remote participation. Some participants, mainly gymnasts and judges, are in the same physical location, while some judges are participating remotely, either from home or any other location.
  3. Online competitions – completely new, never seen before competition formats. All participants and the audience are engaging remotely, from their own locations. Whether a gymnast is participating from their gym or a remote location, they can compete on an online competition with other participants from anywhere in the world. The same applies to judges, coaches and audiences.

Do competitors need to be in the same location?

No, Elevien enables online competitions from several locations at the same time. Judges are also scoring the video recordings of routines fully remotely.

Who can record gymnasts’ exercises?

Usually Coaches record exercises performed by their gymnasts, but it can also be an alternative participant. The person who records videos has to be assigned in Elevien as the competition Admin or Organiser/Owner and registered with a phone number. It can be a trainer or another person dedicated to record gymnast(s). This person does not actively participate in the competition, but only has the task of recording.

How does the video upload work?

When you record the video of the gymnast’s routine, either directly through Elevien or by uploading it from your phone gallery, it gets automatically uploaded in Elevien in the background. This means that you don’t need to wait for the video to finish uploading if you need to start recording a new video. Just continue recording other routines while the upload of the previous videos is happening in the background.

How are the scores calculated in Elevien?

Competition scores are calculated according to FIG rules.

If there are fewer than 3 E judges on an apparatus, the average score is calculated as the Final E score. If there are 4-6 E judges, the Final E score is calculated in a way that the lowest and the highest E score are eliminated and an average is calculated from the remaining E scores.

Do the competition and judging need to happen in real-time?

Judges and competitors do not have to be online at the same time. A judge can score the exercise remotely, at any time. Once all routines are scored, the final scores are automatically calculated and the rankings of gymnasts appear.

How do I deal with different time zones?

There is no predefined timeframe in the Elevien app in which gymnasts need to be recorded or judged. Organisers of the competitions in agreement with the participants and judges choose the duration of the competition. It usually lasts a minimum of 24 hours, so it can be recorded from any time zone in the time period suitable for everyone.
