Whenever you feel the need to argue that skater X may be unworthy of his marks because his program does not have enough transitions, or that she should finish lower because her transitions aren't difficult enough, or that pair Y is vastly superior because they have more transitions than pair Z, swap the word transitions for one of the following:
1. Spread eagles
4. Style and individuality
5. Sequins or sparkles
Does your evaluation of the skaters' merit and the program quality still make sense? No? Well, let that serve as a reminder that you should not judge skaters, or their programs, based on just one component.
Kevin van der Perren never neglected point no. 5
