Mao looks so dissapointed...
IMO one 3-3, poor spirals, extensions, lack of fire, finesse did not make it a gold for the ages. She was awarded this for no mistakes. Remember Tara and Sara and Shizuka? Far better performances. Joannie would have been perfect had this burden and grief not been with her...ah this is life...she's incredible. What a pro career she will have. I will miss her elegance. Sniff!
I'm so sad for Mao and her missed triple toe
It's been one of her more consistent jumps this season.
I feel so bad for Mao. She did her best and has a lot to be proud of. What's worse is that Japan is just going to go freak out.
Look how happy Joannie is with the bronze medal. A true Olympian in every respect. Just love that girl. Mao treasure the silver. No one has ever done three triple axels in an Olympics and it my never happen again. That's a statistic to be proud of.
i cannot find it online this is so hard not to see i keep looking
THE ugliest medals EVER... It's so grotesquely big... Even the length is bad, I mean when you can't see the medal because of the reflex flower-holding position, you've messed up on the basic design... Kim should stick around for another 4 years and reclaim her thrown in Sochi simply to get a nicer piece of jewelry...
Okay. The standings remain from SP! Wow that's a first in a long time I think. I am so proud of Mao for doing that after Kim's performance. It must not have been easy and she was nervous I can tell. But the overscoring at this Olympics is a bit ridiculous. These skaters all had better performances before.
Why is Mao crying? She just won an Olympic silver medal. No small accomplishment. So happy for Orser. He finally has his Olympic gold medal....42
This must be so huge in South Korea. I feel bad for Mao, I hope she gets her other triple jumps back. I am happy that Mirai did so well under pressure. I hope she continues to do well. And I am happy for Joannie to win a medal, she deserves it.
Well, guys, maybe you'll hate what I will write, because I'm biased and uber fan and so on, but I'm gonna say it anyway.
Yuna Kim is the best skater in the history! Just believe it! If you don't see it now, you'll see it later through years!
Thank God we have her with us! This night we all won! This is something that just can't happen in reality, but it happened! Amazing! Not taking anything from anybody, but that's how I see it.
Nobody, but Yuna.
