There were three judges for each performance, each giving a score of up to 160 divided as follows: 40 points for "appearance and march of the competitors," 60 points for "precision of movement, style, etc.," and 60 points for "physiological and rational combination of the exercises executed."[1] The judges' scores were summed.
