The current judging may favour D&W's skills, however, I think V&M are being underestimated. I never thought they'd beat D&W's Indian themed OD with a flamenco, but they came out and absolutely killed it. These two are ferocious competitors and while the 4 continents may be too soon for V&M - since it's in the US, I think they will win World's this year.
I don't understand the obstinancy of the ISU about correcting results when a mechanical error is found. Particularly this time when no one's medal would have changed.
