This is definitely a problem. I do agree that it would be best if the technical specialists came from the countries whose skaters aren't medal contenders in that particular event.

This is weird: neither V/M nor D/W are in the last group.
The top ranked skaters are seeded into the last two groups.

I've been watching Worlds on LTV7.LV and can't figure out when (EDT) Ice Dancing SD starts tomorrow (Thursday). Where can I go to get the times for each competition? TIA.
The starting time for each segment of the competition are listed here: http://www.isuresults.com/results/wc2013/
Just remember that the times are Eastern Daylight Savings Time, which meant the clocks are one hour ahead of the normal standard time (if you live in DC this shouldn't be a problem because you're on daylight savings time now as well).

The schedule is at the bottom of the page.
Thursday's schedule is: The times are in London, Ontario, which is GMT-5
10:45:00 Ladies Short Program
17:25:00 Ice Dance Short Dance
Thanks WeakAnkles and dorispulaski!
Penny & Nick!
I seem to remember when Marika Humphreys was Tech Spec at Worlds, she was heavily criticized on here - especially because her hubby was originally Ukrainian, and this was deemed the reason she would be biased by some posters.

I will also just say in Ice Dance same the Top 3 will be V/M, D/W and P/B
I don't see how that where her husband is from would be relevant at all. I love Marika because she's really strict with all of the teams.
