    IIRC in 1994 Baiul, Kerrigan and Chen all skipped Worlds, clearing the way for Sato, Bonaly and Szewczenko to shine.

    Where in my post did I say -2.00 for the the fall? I know the judges did not give her a deduction for the second 'fall' because of the way they define a 'fall'. I am not uneducated.

    It was a fall. Not an outright splat, but a fall nonetheless.

    I agree with you. Read the COP spec, my comprehensive told me it was a fall, since her weight was support by both of her hand at the time. But my guess was those specialists at the big O might get the memo, that in case the competetions turned out the splat fests never seen before (like the dance), which could lead to criticizing of NJS, they should cut a little lose of the 'fall' definition....It was said many such type of 'fall' got -1 deduction in GPs, but not in Olympics. Sasha was not the only one got this benifit of doubt, there were others, but their rank may not so higher that you would pay attention to....it might be fair to all those have the same type 'fall'. but, imo, not fair to those who landed all their jumps.

    Even if they took the extra point off, there still would have been enough of a difference between her and Irina that she still would have been 2nd...?

    She will still have her silver no one can take this away from her. lol......It's not the medaling I'm talking about. It's about follows the rule (if you have the rules in place) and fair/consistant judging.....as for if rules are defined properly or not, that's another subject.

    And after watching this jump slowmo, it seems to me she was lucky it was called a triple and not a double. It looks slightly over a quarter underrotated to me.
