    IMO the edge call was BS and today's DG is the same BS.

    I just hope media leave her alone between now and her LP.


    ............. Is that the same tech specialist who gave Yuna Level "1" on her step sequence....????

    Yes it was. Excellent speed, height, distance, position, and rotation. It was a brilliant combination that deserved +2 GOE.

    I could see how much her blade rotated on the ice to finish the jump.
    She isn't finishing the rotation on the ice, her blade simply keeps rotating a bit after landing backwards.

    Yu-Na's 3-3 had more height than Lysacek's, Weir's, and Oda's. Better distance than Weir and Oda as well.

    That's what I mean by I don't consider her a clean LP skater.

    P.S. I adore Yuna and I hope she can skate 2 programs cleanly back-to-back in Vancouver.

    I know, she's a dominant Sp skater, but does make mistakes in LP. You said "I don't ever remember Yuna as a clean LP skater," so I gave you one example, that's all............

    Well, let's hope that tech. specialist won't be the one calling DGs and edges at the Olympics..... Yikes. I, too, thought the 3/3 was fine, but I didn't scrutinize it afterwards

    Oh you're right.

    I've not seen that particular LP, although I do remember someone saying that Yuna is capable of a clean LP, although it seems to me that she can't seem to put it together. It's disappointing b/c she might've made more positive / exciting impression on fans if she can skate clean back-to-back.

    A clean LP under CoP is not important. How many points you score is all that matters. Just read the rule book if you dont believe me

    Mao crashed her 3A intto the boards and still won the WC - because she scored the most points

    I agree with you Blades. I saw all of men's and women's competitions at SA, and Yuna undoubtedly was really something. She was absolutely better than
    most of the men there... Her speed, jumping ability, music interpretation... Everything. Evan was a great skater, but he seriously prerotates his 3A and others, and we all saw his score.

    If it is the SAME tech, who first gave Yuna level 1 on her step sequence, the FIRST and ONLY "E" call on her flip, then seriously someone pick up that small Japanese lady and toss her out please.

    well, we were talking about how Yuna is not as dominant in her LP that's all.

    And about Mao crashing into the boards.... Please, let's not forget that her PCS then was again way higher than her TES. Although I do LOVE Mao, I still cannot accept her PCS sometimes.

    I don't know about the one who downgraded the 3-3 today, but
    I think the one who gave Yuna's flip "e" and level 1 on her step sequence
    is a cute little Japanese lady. So that's why I was asking. haha

    Um....no it wasn't. If you actually bothered to check the protocols for her free program at 2008 Worlds instead of making numbers up, Mao had 60.57 PCS and 61.89 TES--I don't know about you, but 60.57 is definitely LOWER than 61.89.

    OK, thanks. It looked like 45 degrees today - which if I saw right is a little too much.

    I would not bet anything on what I can see on these streams.

    I thought the jump looked great when I saw it. The slow -mo made it appear to be a ur.

    I dont care one way or the other. I love Yuna - I just think if they are calling things so tight there is no rule in CoP that says Yuna can't get dinged either.
