At a recent major competition, there were what seemed to be an unusual amount of downgrades to the jumping skills of the competitors. Yet at another recent competition, there were far fewer downgrades.
The words of the Technical Panel are infallible so I would like the opinions of our members as to why they think (or they know) what caused the discrepancies.
Was it a better field of skaters in the latter? Was it a different lineup of the Tech Panel in the two competitions? or Is there some other reason?
