My concern isn't that it is bad sportsmanship but that she has a very negative attitude. This attitude isn't doing anything to help correct her problems. If she doesn't make improvements then of course it is going to be frustrating to continue to see the same marks come up.

She really needs to take a year off, try and fix her technique, and see if she really still wants to skate, IMO. From her expression and comments it seems that she doesn't enjoy it at all. Maybe she needs to take a page out of Joannie's book and develop a life for herself outside of skating.
