Her last toeloop is seen in the replay. She gets to the 1/4 turn mark.
Her second 3Lutz was underrotated and her 3Loop was drastically underrotated. None of the others should have been downgraded.

It seems that now only Yuna and maybe Miki are able to perform 3-3. I hope that this opens the doors for lovely skaters that do not have 3-3 in their arsenal to medal at big events. Or maybe someone could pull off 3T-3T? When executed well, it is such a pleasent combo to watch!!
And the solo Triple Toeloop was so underrotated, I rewatched it on TV Asashi with high qualitiy. No question to me. Alright, I can't believe I did this again. But I made a picture - here. From the TV Asashi broadcast. In the first picture you see the moment where she should take off for the Toeloop. Her freeleg is already one quarter prerotated, but lots of skaters do it. The second picture is very shortly before the take-off. The ice is white, but I think you can clearly see that the blade of the left foot is completely on the ice. So when she actually takes off, she already rotated half a rotation on the ice. The landing was one quarter revolution, perhaps a little less short. But in my opinion this Triple Toeloop is a perfect Toe Axel.
I checked other skater's toeloops, just to be on the safe side, e.g. Kim's. They don't take off like that.
What kind of nonsense were you talking about with Suzuki? She is not attractive enough to be a star? Huh? I don't get that.
