The isu wanted more balanced sp's so they did the halfway point bonus in them. Some skaters didn't use it at all some some did 1/2 layout but mostly everyone in sp did a 2/1 layout of jumps. Did Sps seem more balanced with later jumps or were just most jumps timed for the 1:15 mark and there were no really late sp ending jumps? Hanyu had 1/2 layout and he was setting all the records! Chan had 2/1 but then he set the record. Who was better? Half of chan's winning margin came from .6 bump in 3lz value in 3lz in second half. But ten did a midpoint 3/3 so he got a bonus in the sp too. Did you see better short programs?
