I read a post somewhere in this forum that she is just a great jumper with a good choreographer, but there are other good jumpers and any of them can also get choreography from Wilson as long as they can afford it. Does it mean they will get scores close to Yuna's? I don't think so. A program is completed interactively between the skater and the choreographer. Wilson's programs are full with COP-friendly moves, sure, but IMO Yuna is the only one who can perform it with that high level of attention to every detail, without compromising the technical excellence at all. I guess this is the reason why some people feel that her programs are too calculated, but for me she looks to have even more freedom to show her expressions than other skaters with less complicated programs and it is only beautiful.

I wonder if this person has seen Yu-na live? Because while I haven't, I heard she's incredible live in the sense that she goes into her jumps with full speed and comes out with speed. And honestly I think Yu-na moves her arms just about better than any lady around.I read a post somewhere in this forum that she is just a great jumper with a good choreographer, but there are other good jumpers and any of them can also get choreography from Wilson as long as they can afford it.

Sorry if this has been addressed, but what was Mao's team thinking when they constructed her LP base value? It is over 5 points lower than Yu Na's. I wonder how they thought they were going to make that up? Or were they counting on Yu Na to make a mistake? There is nothing wrong with Mao's skating. She compares favorably or the same with Yu Na on spins, spirals and steps. She needs to call Akiko Suzuki's coach and choreograher immediately to find a way to extract more points from her programs. It's too late for this year, but not for next.
Re: the hugging on the podium, it seems like Mao was ticked off with not winning, or maybe because of the bad interview I heard about, and that's why she didn't hug anyone. Yu-Na did hug Joannie and Mao.
