Being a proud Australian, I first want to congratulate Australia's first ever ice dance medalists at an international competition. Danielle Obrien and Gregory Merriman won the bronze medal at the Mentor Nestle Nesquik Torun Cup in Poland. Fantastic job.

Belinda Noonan, a respected person in Australian Figure skating circles wrote an article about her take on the new technical minimum scores. Long story short, she is critical of how these high TCS' are affecting ice dance. She discusses issues from how these standards are leaving skaters and their struggling federations in the dust. Not only that, she even discusses about the great inconsistency in scoring and calling of levels. She also looks at the other side of the argument and the lack of funding in this expensive sport.

What's your say? Post below. Thanks
