Just to explain how the scoring worked.
The scores of all three judges are added up and then divided by the total available points. It is then multiplied by 100 (rounded to 2 decimal points) and subtracted from 100.
In Fouaad's case, the final score of all the judges combined was 72 which was then subtracted by 100, ultimately resulting in a score of 28.
To keep it simple for every one of us the lower the final penalty points score the better the rank.
Phew, that was a lot of maths.
