I've been watching skating for a long time and really can't remember a time when SO MANY of the top skaters could soar - or sink - or both - at a given competition. A list: Czisny Abbott Rippon Nagasu Ando Asada Joubert Verner Kostner Faiella & Scali I'm sure I've missed some. Is it just me, or does it seem like a lot more skaters are performing inconsistently these days? Is COP to blame, with so many requirements? Is it just a coincidence?
