At WTT SP Grassl was clearly robbed. 4Lo was obviously clean
https://youtu.be/up5BqFoqd5A?t=65 or another angle https://youtu.be/up5BqFoqd5A?t=287
but marked as UR http://www.isuresults.com/results/season1819/wtt2019/data0103.pdf
What a disgusting trend we have now with this so called "strict" UR rule when jumps URs in practice are judged just by snow from blades instead of actual landing curve. That, or we have biased panel there.
It is amazing to me that two people can look at the same videos, one sees something "obvious" but the other can't see it at all.
To me, Rizzo's landing looks wobbly and unclear on the first video and definitely under-rotated on the second.
Also, technically ideal Liza's 3A https://youtu.be/YqbxzoQU1KQ?t=56 getting less GOEs than halfturn prerotated Rika's 3A https://youtu.be/Osem0fAOXs8?t=55 is just
And it's not the first time when Liza's perfect lutz or 3A are getting ridiculously low GOEs. What is it, conspiracy against her?
On this one, Tuktamysheva's 3A is a beauty!
But, to me, so is Rika's. I don't see any pre-rotation at all. It looks perfectly forward to me.
I, for one, do not envy the judges their responsibility.
