I think you are allowing a retired competitor to reach out from beyond the (figure skating) grave and haunt your dreams. Time to let it go. The past is past, the future beckons.

Say no to horrendous costumes
Some people say they want the artistry to dominate so I think even 5 triple program is enough for them. As for me, I want more jumps but not too many or else those jumps would ruin the other elements. I love it very much when skaters jump, but I think they are too severed on the UR and Edge calls, instead on the falls. I mean UR and Edge calls only matter when they are too obvious, if it's just slightly then why 30% to 70% deduction when overall it doesn't affect the performance too much? I mean if they deduct like -3 points on a fall on jumps, maybe there will be less falls. Instead they decide to punish UR and Edge!!!

The birds always pick at the best fruit.
Actually, that leap reminds me of the big delayed single axles skaters used to do way back when. Loved those jumps. Although I don't recall anyone doing a complete split position while they delayed.
