Ugh. I tried to overlook your statement but I couldn't. I didn't say she should get high PCS becaue she's a lovely skater. Not sure where you're getting that from. I said that she's a far better skater than many people seem to realize or they do not want to realize because they don't like her style or because she's american or whatever...
Doing a triple triple in the womens is like doing a quad triple in the mens. Mao is capable of scoring 135 if she is clean. Kim scored less than 120 at 4CC. Kim is no way a shoe in even with a 10 pt lead.
It's a shame that Mao couldn't do her triple lutz. But still it was amazing.
About Yuna... I would like to say a lot of things, but I think that is not necessary. She really deserved the score she got. I'm very happy for her. Maybe it's bad that she literally leaves no place for competition, but, come on, we can't force someone to skate bad just for our excitement. I'll just enjoy her on ice and I hope that everyone of you too. Let's forget the scores for those moments and enjoy her art.
I remember back when I was still with a ballet company, one of the male dancers said he was surprised a I could do triple turns and jump well with my um, "assets". I know it took some restraint not to kick him where it hurts
Watch YuNa kim score over 140 tomorrow guys!!!
Or has she??
I agree though.
It's not a done deal until the last skater has finished the long program.
As well as Kim skated her short today, it would be way too premature to crown her the champion yet.
