"Speed" vs. "Music" in Free Skate
A Question: How important is Speed in scoring a FS program?
There is no doubt about it YuNa is the faster skater in the West. That takes care of the fastest, now; how fast should others skate? and how do Judges look at speed in a program?
Another Question: How important is Musicality in scoring a FS program?
There are tempos and composers notes on how his music should be played.
I bring these questions up to clear up matter of Caroline Zhang being put down on being slow.
How fast should Caroline skate to a prayerful type of music? At what speed would YuNa interpret the Ave Maria? (I think the Schubert one was not written with religion in mind.)
More to the point: Isn't speed scored on it's specific varieties? and Shouldn't Music be scored on what it is?
