    Highest Ladies Score under IJS

    I just watched Kimmie Meissner at worlds 2006 on YouTube.

    She scored 218.33.

    Now earlier this year I remember the excitement when Yu-Na Kim was the first to break 200 under IJS with 207.03.

    I also thought IJS was in effect at 2006 worlds.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    Come on, guys. Let's do a bit of research before asking the entire board.

    Let's check wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimmie_Meissner). Her highest combined total score was 189.87 at the 2006 Worlds. Hmm... that's funny. Why the 28.46-point difference?

    OK, now let's check the official results for 2006 Worlds (http://www.isufs.org/results/wc2006/). Oh? What's this? They had a qualifying round back then. Let's see how Kimmie did... (http://www.isufs.org/results/wc2006/SEG005.HTM). 28.46... familiar number... Oh! I know! It's the extra 28.46 points that made her score 218.33!

    See? Wasn't that hard at all.

    SerpentineSteps:

    IMO, while your response was true, it was also a bit harsh. Why not simply say Kimmie's 2006 score included a qualifying round that has since been discontined? It was an honest question that deserved a more respectful answer.

    New posters, don't be put off by this. I've found most people are happy and willing to answer questions on this board without that kind of sarcasm and nastiness.

    Some people on this board just need to chillax. (hello Serpentine!)

    I think there's a difference between sarcastic humor and accusing someone of personality flaws just because of different opinions... oh wait, it's happening again. how surprising...

    I just love it when I annoy someone to the point that they don't respond to the other posters who were reprimanding his/her unnecessary b~tching at another user for asking an innocent question.

    It's probably always worth baring in mind that the written word is easily misinterpretted as you can't hear tone of voice so sarcasm often needs pointing out otherwise you just come across as harsh.

    That said - this response seems to suggest that you were simply being harsh in the first place. If it bothers you so much that someone hasn't gone and researched something then simply skip the post and move on!

    OMG,

    Sorry for asking. I did not think it would upset you so. Not sure I would have figured that out since I did not know they scored the qualifying round. I did not know to check isufs.org either. Sounds like a simple thing to research if you know the place to look.

    I saw the 218.33 and was curious. Thought this would be a good place to ask that kind of question. Seems like others on the board thought it was OK.

    Most boards are happy to have more users/traffic.

    No, no ask away! The majority of people will be happy to answer them
