I ask this after seeing Ashley win Skate America getting those scores for those jumps and Carolina winning worlds didn't help. It seems like ladies' skating is going backwards and men's skating is moving upward and onward. In my opinion the ladies are pretty much taking zero risk jump wise and getting rewarded for it and the men are flinging themselves in the air with all of their strength. All I can hope is that with the Russian ladies coming up other skaters will start in increase the technical jump content. I'm just disappointed.
