    What's wrong with the ice?

    I've never seen so many strange falls like yesterday's competition, which some of them fell when they weren't doing any technical elements, someone fell when he was spinning that was never happened to him before, and of course, a lot of
    skaters fell on their jumps.

    I don't think is normal for these skaters...

    I just want to know what's wrong with the ice in the rink?!

    In the pairs' SP, so many skaters fell, and two team of them fell when they didn't do any technical elements, I/M and Z/Z. You can see the videos, and Dan Zhang said that she caught her blade on a hole on the ice and stumble.

    There are two posts which the posters were watching the pairs live

    Dan Zhang said in K&C that she was caught in a rut, therefore the strange fall. The ice surface must have some glitches today.
