How do we achieve this? Is this what viewers want? Skaters want?
1) Ladies de-emphasize jumps-3x3s and return to edges, easier transitions resulting in less injury. My Vision? Caro's SP was perfection. Return value to spirals and classic blurred spins. Yuna Kim and prepubescent phenoms are so rare. Janet Lynn-watch her-skating skills, flow, off the charts. This was figureskating.
If figures lead to perfect basic skills, should they require them again? And not broadcast them but score them-20%?
Diff expectations for singles-M or F? I juries are rampant-what to do or change?
Lastly, watching the older oly Champs, they had straight backs, great posture and speed-Peggy was diff from Janet who was diff than Dorothy. Not so much cookie cutter. I wish the ugly spins and interminable footwork were stopped and reworked. I hate spins now with few exceptions, and god help the footwork. It is all the same and so boring.
From a fan point of view, should ijs be changed some more? thanks.
