I think figures were an excellent tool in our sport not to say that moves are not good and very relevant to the evolution of our sport.However, I can tell when I see Dorothy Hamill(a great example) even though she`s not doing triples her edges are so solid. Look at that delayed axel !!!! I would never want to go back to the days of 60/40 judging but what are your thoughts did it make a difference? They do call it FIGURE skating.
