Well, they didn't hold her up too much. She scored 99.96 points, which put her 5th in her qualifying group and 7th overall going into the short. She was so far behind that she didn't even make the last flight in the short, and was not able to medal even after getting third in both the short and the long.Originally Posted by Red Dog
(BTW, the beauty of the CoP is that we can't just shout "wuzrobbed" any more. If you think 99.96 points was too high, which elements or component scores did you feel were out of line?)
I love Irina to pieces, and her 2005 World Championship performance was one of the all-time highlights of the sport.Also...I can't help but get this feeling that Irina should have won silver in 06...
But IMHO her 2006 Olympic LP was simply abysmal. Who kidnapped my Irina and put this sleepwalking robot in her place?
