    I know you are happy about your girl Akiko. She was wonderful. What is up with her PC's they should be higher.

    They make it sound like some mediocre Japanese lady came around and took advantage of a bad day of skating.

    Well that appears to be exactly what happened. But the word "mediocre" would be terribly unfair and not accurate at all.

    I do hope that this sends a rebuke to those who feel that the short program is all that counts under the new system. Both Rochette and Suzuki were off the podium based on their short.

    But Suzuki won Gold and Joannie won Bronze. They were both on the podium.

    Yes, but their podium positions were thanks to their long programs. People have been saying that COP hurts the competition because the podium is pretty much decided after the short program. The fact that Suzuki and Rochette made the podium proves that this is decisively not the case.

    that is the point ; at TEB thread people were complaining about how easy it is to win an even on the short program alone

    True today, but with so much sloppy (bordering on inept) skating at COC it is hardly the time to wave the CoP flag.

    ETA: Congratulations to the medal winners who with the exception of Akiko showed us mistake after mistake and some of the least inspiring skating seen since the the last GP event.

    First of all: Congrats to Akiko, she was wonderful!!!

    As for Rachael and her jumping consistency, my impression is that she has been working on her (f)lutz and as a result is now struggling with both flip and lutz, which is not really that surprising. She's a determined, hard worker, so I'm sure she'll get that under control sooner or later.
    As for Mirai and her underrotations, that was the first time she was in a position to medal at a senior gp. Let's give her the benefit of a doubt here, part of her underrotation problem in the long was probably due to her nerves.

    Mirai has consistently underrotated jumps, even as a junior, especially in the second half of the program. Just like she did here.

    Rachael is a in a much better place, she got every jump rotated - despite all the gloom and doom concerning her body type, puberty, rather tiny jumps etc. I guess Rachael will sort her small lapses of concentration out and come back strong.
