One thing I always marvelled at were diving judges.
By the way, in the changes to the GOE structure last year, the ISU decided to go with the "diving model" to replace the former additive model.
It used to be that you would get the base value and then a GOE score from -3 to +3 to add on. In the current model, the GOE provides a multiplier. +1 GOE means multiply the base value by 1,10, +2 GOE means multiply the base value by 1.2, etc.
This is like diving, where you get a difficulty score and then a performance score. If you get a performance score of 8, say, then you multiply the difficulty score (base value) by 80% (times ten for convenience).
