Agreed! I missed their actual skate but seeing them in the KnC my first thought was, such delightful young people, I’m so happy for them—also, that he has quite a nice head of hairCharming end of the competition in kiss&cry. Happy second Spanish team
I get that. I do like it a little less than I did last season, but I still really love it!May I offer a contrary opinion? I absolutely loved this program the first time I saw it, but it is starting to grate on me—haven’t liked it nearly as much on subsequent viewings. JMHO.
As I said, I would have B/Z slightly higher than Ash/Timothy but more in the range of 66+, but scores in the middle section are all down, simply because the judges DID NOT score Ash/Timothy fairly with a clean skate. A&T are being rated lower than they deserve to be rated.I find myself getting really excited about this Spanish team!
No? It's in the rulebook. And if you took a look at the full protocols, you would see that the panel was on the more strict side all around, while the judges were more lenient in the GOE. Also, historically, Finlandia Trophy has always been more conservative in scoring, so you can definitely expect higher scores for T/M at the more important competitions.Thanks for the rundown. But once again, we get into subjectivity. I know Ash/Timothy aren't perfect. But I think the q rating is because they expect Ash to have problems on rotations and landings, even when she doesn't.
For example, T/M, if they skate clean are always given huge scores. They skated less better than this and with less confidence at 2019 Worlds and were given 81+ because the judges wanted to put a win out of reach for James/Cipres who at that point had yet to skate, but had won every competition they'd entered that season, beating a tentative T/M twice (at GPF and Euros).
