Why does she have the jump technique that she does? Other skaters seem to have no issues with attaining much better height and distance.
So what if she was a little overscored? Are we going to discredit all the judges because of that? Remember that she lost to Mao on her home ice in last year's GPF. Judges can't please everybody with every score so we should be happy that the best skater walked away with a gold medal and let's hope that the same thing happens at every event including the Olympics
that is WHAT IS WRONG WITH FIGURe SKATING__it is cheating--
that is what make i\the sport not a sport--NOT Credible
CHeated for Yu-na -
wont cheat for mao
USFSA Tells international judges to purposely keep vcaroline zhang down--make sure she gets downgrades and overloook the small mistakes and downgrades on other us skaters like rachel, sasha alissa, ashley, alexie, mirai.
caroline wil be the next michelle you know in she has to skate PERFECT THE GET THE Score the other US Skaters can BOMB and still get the scores.
caroline kostner shouldn't been above zhang. in free skate,
Yeah, that's what I usually do, too. HAHA
Her free leg does bend at the knee a bit, too, I think.
I'm wondering whether that's related to her hip problems, but whatever.
She can't be perfect.
And thank you to other posters who've elaborated their views on spiral sequences.
That was very helpful.
2. Since this thread is about TEB, lets limit our comments to Alexe and Zhang. How did Alexe benefit from the judges overlooking her mistakes (this is what you're arguing).
3. And why should Zhang have been ahead of Kostner in the free?
thank you international judgings for proving me right about caroline zhang and usfsa in helping you--
how low pcs scores and downgrades--
how keeping her low so other us girlds skate bypass her-by usfsa juding standards. and by helping the usfsa keeping her down.
other sports like swimiing has cheating--but they also go by time
figure skating goes by OPINION ONLY> which makes cheating look twice as bad-how -favoritism.
THE OLYMPICS Are about Fair play-if you allow and win by cheating you degrade the olympic jideal (lof which there isn't any-) see swimming high tech cheating. see
the outrage at the wrong name winners ogm and other medal,s you lose out on money-character and public perceptions of fair play and sportmanship.
the us had it in michelle-the usfsa told other countries to ignore it at olympicsthey
why do you think people are still complaining.
Saying "WHITE IS BLACK" doesn't make it so. How did they cheat?
Fair enough, but that's not the scoring system, that's the competition. I guess I definitely prefer it this way to the 6.0/top three in the short way.
In the old system the short program was more like the semi-finals. The top finishers won the right to go for all the marbles in the final. (Sort of.)
Well, we've got Miki Ando next week and then Joannie Rochette the week following. I've got my fingers crossed for a good start from both.Originally Posted by Sniper
