But when the head hits the back is exposed for a split second. In the original, the thrower over-rotated and all of the exposure was while in the air.
I don't see it that way after watching and pausing the video close to 20 times. The throwee is just short of vertical when her right forearm and hair hit the mat. By the time her head hits the mat, her legs have swung just past vertical.
With that, it's scored a five point move, but she doesn't land in danger, as has been discussed many times in this thread. Three, yes, but five? This is why I started my post off with "Similarly,..." Either way, it was an awfully nice suplay.
Doesn't matter about the legs swinging past vertical. When the right shoulder hits the head is bent under thus exposing the back slightly. And in any case, one of the points hammered to officials is that for a five not to get too technical. That point could be argued for the first video (and I think some were).
