[topic came up in the UK open comp topic ee]
I agree - I can't believe that one couple can be 'on' so consistently to be tops in the world all the time. Seems to me that the Int Standard results are pretty much predictable - are the couples really that set in their performance abilities?
I think it is historical. once at the top it apprears you stay at the top till you retire but surely everyone has a good day and bad days and if it is bad you should not ge to win! I feel sorry for those that are always place 4th 5th etc means they will never get to the top unless the others pull out. I am thinking of the Brother sister combination from Germany..they dance beautifully but never place higher than that.
that could be another topic "are couples really that set in their performance abilities?
