Please improve the figure skating judging system by implementing multiple video cameras and disclosing information about judging decisions with evidence. Please give serious consideration to implementing a gyroscopic system /AI system in the future.

The figure skating judging system can be controversial as it relies on only one CCTV monitor and human eyes, which may not always be accurate. Skaters have no right to "challenge" the decisions.
However, the decisions made, which may be incorrect or inaccurate, significantly affect the competition results and are often criticised by media and on SNS, where they have been discussed as conspiracy theories, racisms, prejudice and even bribery.
Jump edges and jump rotations are incredibly difficult to determine but these are the most critical elements to win the competition.
The new technology calculates accurately in seconds, whereas a person needs time to see the details. Technical judgements, related to the quality of the jumps should be jdged by advanced technology, not people.
Judges are not provided with slow motion replay, (may not include technical judges) and we know that it is impossible to always see the edges clearly by naked eyes.
To implement this technology may take years but setting more monitors could be done without massive efforts. Disclosure of judgments with solid evidence would help athletes and coaches to correct errors, whereas incorrect judgments confuse everyone, and may cause the loss of motivation and faith in the ISU.
Skaters are making their utmost efforts to gain 0. 1 point every day, and these improvements are recognised and cherished by countless people who love figure skating in the world.
*As all we care about is skaters' happiness, we do not support displaying "unfair judge" banners in any competitions, as these may make both fans and competitors uncomfortable and unhappy.
複数のビデオカメラを実装し、証拠のある判断の情報を開示することにより、フィギュアスケートの判断システムを改善してください。将来的には、ジャイロスコープシステム/ AIシステムの実装を真剣に検討してください。

追記:私たちの一番の願いは選手達の幸せなので、すべての人、特に出場したすべてのスケーターを不快にさせ、悲しませる"unfair judge"の旗を掲げることを支持しません。

We, the undersigned, call on ISU and IOC to improve the figure skating judging system by implementing more video cameras, by providing slow motion replay to all judges and using more advanced technology, as well as disclosing the information on judging decisions to ensure transparency and fairness for all skaters.

The Justice to all figure skaters 全てのスケーターに正義を: improve judging system ジャッジシステムの向上(和訳後述) petition to ISU and IOC was written by Wakako Yamaguchi and is in the category Sports at GoPetition.
