Caroline was underscored in China?
Netnuts was comparing Zhang with Meier, not Rochette. I think he would agree that Rochette skated very well in the LP's. But the SP is there for a reason, Joannie placed 5th in the SP in both events. If you want to relegate the SP to irrelevance, or eliminate it altogether, then that's another discussion. I guess the rationale of the SP is that you have to demonstrate that you have the competence to do one combo, one triple out of footwork, one axel, two spins, one spiral seq, one footwork seq -- such that you cannot make up your relative weaknesses in one area in another. Joannie for whatever reasons hasn't been able to deliver the SP. Under the old 6.0 system, she'd be even worse off than she is now!
