Meanwhile,… the International Skating Union
has tweaked its figure skating judging criteria for the upcoming season.
The most striking change can be seen in scoring jumps. A jump’s base value will drop to 70 percent
for an error,… or to 50 percent for partially rotated spins. The take-off edge of flips and Lutzes will
be scrutinized as well. It’s being seen as a direct response to the
figure skating judging controversy, during the Sochi Games.
