I just wanted to say that since we are not judges here it's easy to say that "this is not correct judging" on one particular element when we don't have the eye/the knowledge/the experience of said judges and don't discriminate every point from each element of the whole program. I also think I made a mistake and confused you with another poster here. Sorry for that.I never said "H/D always get correct judging" so I'm not sure why you are bringing this example up
I should've @ you from the beginning ! Thanks for the technical input.Exactly. Just count the features. The marks were not at all out of line.
Same goes for HubDon's Choreographic Lift in Italy this season. It got an overall positive GOE, which is perfectly within the guidelines for marking GOE, even with Zach's stumble.
The max GOE for an element with a negative feature is +3. Both skaters need to stumble or at least one needs to fall for a mandatory negative GOE.
