I know a lot of people here are siding on changing the IJS system, and it seems that even long skating officials as well. Just wanted to share this interview with Mrs. Garbato that just came through my FB.

That was an interesting interview.  I do agree with her on several of her points especially the point about the programs becoming a bit predictable and somewhat uninteresting (going from one jump to the next jump).

Thanks for posting the link.

Mmm,  the average FS programme these days seems to be 20 seconds of technically amazing (but barely held) triple jumps and scary looking unnaturally contorted spins, and 4:40 of backwards crossovers between them.  Skated WITH music, but not TO music.
