What happened to Pavlova on vault?

Pavlova scored a zero for her second vault.  I’ve heard some people say she went before the green light and other people say she balked.  Balking is when you run for a vault or a skill and then bail out in the middle of it or don’t even start it.  An example of balking is Kramerenko in 2007 worlds team finals.  I don’t know if Pavs went before the green light AND balked or if she just went before the green light and people are mistakenly saying she also balked.  The NBC replay of vault event finals that I found does not show Pavlova.  I’m thinking I may need to dig a little further to find the feed from the event.


Bart and Nadia commentate on this video.  It shows Pavlova’s first and second vault but cuts off before she gets her zero for the second vault.

    They showed the whole thing in britain..
    She was last up and her first vault was very solid, I think she did a triple for her second, (not sure) and she did it really well, but a few moments afterwards it panned to the screen and it had the big red light saying the judges werent ready for her, she then automaticly scored a zero. I guess she got caught up and thought as she’d saluted or whatever that they were ready. I guess a silly mistake for someone so experienced like her and she was very close to tears. I think she would have most likely medalled because of Cheng Fei’s fall. Poor Pavlova. =(
