It's worth comparing with the way Gilles and Poirier's TR was marked. http://www.isuresults.com/results/season1819/gpcan2018/gpcan2018_IceDance_RD_Scores.pdfThought I would try asking this question one more time. Can someone explain how Popova & Mozgov earned a level 2 at Golden Spin on the first half of their pattern without any Ys? The protocol marking is:
Per the small font below, * stands for "invalid element."
Video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBBkUcpg4RM
Pattern starts at the 40 second mark. He does a deep squat at one point, which I initially assumed was the problem but it is a ways into the pattern so I'm not sure if it is what led to no Y's or N's. (Maybe there's just a mistake in the way the protocol was marked? I mean, how can you have either an invalid element or three invalid keypoints and get a level 2?)
One thing to note about Gilles Poirier's TR2 is that they get one key point but because of the interruption are automatically dropped a level. With P/M I suggest that the first TR was actually marked as having three key points (hence the three stars), but the level two is a similar reduction by one. Maybe the asterisking instead of the Ys is to do with someone not knowing how to note the key points when they don't then correlate to the level received?
