This Mao v. Yuna thread is not exactly based on Stoyko's claim that a 3A is required for the Ladies competitition.
Thinking about the results of the CoP: if Mao executes a 3A and afterwards a 3Ax2T she deserves the points allotted for those elements. If Yuna executes a 3x3, and a 3x3x2 she deserves the points allotted for those elements. ----- There is no argument here under existing procedures.
The rest of the programs of both skaters should be judged in the same normal way given the GoEs and PCs which have much to do with opinions. This could be argumentive depending on what one considers 'artistry'. It's not unlike Wagner v. Verdi although with these two blokes, it's clear both had artistry; and it therefore becomes a preference.
IMO, Wagner and Verdi are miles ahead of Mao and Yuna on Artistry, but still either Mao or Yuna could be a preference of the viewer. Hopefully, it is not based on their Nationality.
