    Yeah she should maybe cool it on the weight loss. I feel like she gets smaller at every competition

    Overscored - All the ladies and mens medalists. I can't think of ONE medalist who wasn't. It was so bad that I actually don't feel that Yuna has been overscored that much. I mean, come on, Joannie scored over 200 for a program that was generally skated well but had two glaring mistakes and no 3-3. Mao had that huge score for a program that she had only four triples (two of them axels, I know, I know. If they were not, we wouldn't be talking about her here, since she'd have been off the podium) and no real musicality, interpretation or transition.
    Oh, and of course Patrick Chan. I'm just not going to say anything about him because anything I say will be unnecessarily inflammable.

    Underscored - Nobody. Which proves that this is the Olympics.

They were full of emotion, full of class, grace and she was pretty much clean (take away a few bobbles) If anything, her mother's death turned on a switch on her. I don't think I can explain it.

    As for Mirai, we barely heard much about her mom except before her skate for like five seconds. And no I don't think the judges were gifting her either. She has a beautiful line and flow to her skating and you need that just as much as her jumps. And she skated clean. I think Rachael was underscored, but I don't think it's right to assume that Mirai was overscored. She put down a better performance than Miki and Laura but not as well as Rochette. I think if anyone was overscored, it was Miki. Talk about a snoozer of a program.
    How is that nasty? It's a valid question. It's circumstantial that Joannie's mom passed away 3 days after the post. I didn't time it, I swear.
    If you want nasty, read the other posts about Rachael Flatt. Wasn't Joannie portraying a biblical wh something rhyme with Al Gore, "class" is definitely not what she's trying to emote. Why is her interpretation score so high? LOL. I admire her for bringing her "competitivity" (her word) to both programs and I said several time that she deserved her bronze medal. I just don't agree with the massive score she got for that type of performance. Same with Laura Lepisto. Miki got 126 at last year Worlds for a much more engaging performance.
    You don't think the judges were gifting Mirai? Where did the flutzes call go? Flutzes aren't like UR, they don't disappear from one competition to the next. Her flip was rotating on ice, too. If they were that harsh on Rachael, they should ding Mirai as well. I guess it's a bonus for training with the Olympics GOLD medalist.

    It has nothing to do with the timing of Joannie's mom death. It was still a bad thread and the admins thought so too since they took the thread down. It would have made more sense to ask something like "How will Joannie do at the Olympics" or "Can Joannie recover from a tough Grand Prix season?"

    I agree that some of the posts about Rachael were nasty too and I didn't hesitate to call those people out to (if you recall, one poster accused me of being part of the Flatt Police for doing so.) I'm an equal opportunity "don't be nasty" poster. I would do the same for Yuna Kim or Mao Asada.

    Yu-na Kim's LP was way UNDERSCORED! I would have given her 151.60 instead of 150.06.

    I wonder if you remember that since this season 09-10 it has been easier to get +GOE according to ISU Communication 1557. That is also one reason why scores are higher than before and why they are not completely comparable to earlier seasons. Before you could hardly ever see +3 GOE, now it's possible with many skaters with some gorgeus element, eg. Mirai's layback spin in FS.

    underscored: Johnny Weir and Akiko Suzuki.
    I absolutely loved Akiko's performance, both times, and I admire her so much for making such a comeback. I do not get her PCS at all.

    The worst finish by by a US Lady champion at the Olympics in over 50 years, and yet she said she was pleased with herself.
    Who is the second worst? Kwan? Not sure that statistic is all that illuminating.

    The next worse I can think of going back to 1956 would have been 1964. This was a couple of years after the '61 plane crash that took our entire team.
    15 year old Peggy Fleming finished 6h and then went on to win the OGM in '68.

    If this helps your perspective here is a list of US Olympic medal winning Ladies going back to 1956.
    1956 - Tenley Albright wins Gold and Carol Heiss wins Silver.
    1960 - Carol Heiss wins Gold
    1964 - Peggy Fleming finishes 6th
    1968 - Peggy wins Gold
    1972 - Janet Lynn wins Bronze
    1976 - Dorothy Hamill wins Gold
    1980 - Linda Fratiane robbed of Gold but wins Silver
    1984 - Roz Sumners wins Silver
    1988 - Debbi Thomas wins Bronze
    1992 - Kristi wins Gold, Nancy wins Bronze
    1994 - Nancy wins Silver but was the better skater that night
    1998 - Tara wins Gold, Michelle Silver
    2002 - Sarah wins Gold, Michelle Bronze
    2006 - Sasha wins Silver

    2010 - Rachale Flatt finishes 7th

    Does that give you a better understanding that a 7th place finish at the Olympics is disappointing for a US Lady champion? We have t go back, way back for such a poor showing from our champion.

    Perhaps a new era is upon us with a shift to Asia. But I wouldn't count out the US Ladies just yet. Not with Mirai ready to blossom and Christina improving by leaps and bounds under Orser's training.

    Jenaj, couldn't resist the opportunity to do more stats.
    * The last time that a U.S. champion finished worse than Rachael was actually in 1994, when Tonya Harding finished 8th (but Nancy finished with the silver, as we all know.) But since Tonya was stripped of her title, the last time there was a worse showing was in 1948 when Gretchen Merill also finished 8th.
    * Since 1920 when women's figure skating was in the Olympics in some form — only five U.S. figures skating ladies champions did not make the podium. (Teresa Weld Blanchard, 1924, 4th; Maribel Vinson, 1928, 4th; Gretchen Merrill, 1948, 8th; Tonya Harding, 1994 8th*; and Rachael Flatt, 2010, 7th) -- as mentioned Harding shouldn't really count because of the circumstances, but I'm just just going to put it out there.

    That was quite educational....

    ETA: ooohh janetfan's post complement's mine!
