<G12> states *When it’s over, it’s over. Scores will be calculated for all Matches immediately after the Match is complete, and once all Robots and Balls on the Field come to rest. *We have a case that the robot was hanging on the low bar, but due to fast motion, the robot will continue swinging after the buzzer, however, it may touch the field while swinging, but it will eventually settle to a stop with a legal low hang. The entire process was not pre-programmed routine.

The question is whether the robot will be considered low hang in such case?
Answered by committee

Yes, this would be considered a Low Hang.
