That is not a new move. It's been in the program the whole season. See youtube for all previous competitions. The camera angle may have made it look different. But it is NOT new.

V/M's lift (the "goose") that was changed involved a was a scored element. Meryl and Charlie's ":throw" is a non-scored transition lift. No deduction applicable. It counts toward the PCS.

ETA: Protocols are up. Ded. was for an extended lift (likely lift # 1)
