    Yuna has been especially overscored since 2009 season.
    Something must have changed since then....really.
    I believe many people ( except Korean people) think her score is overscored. Today , the contradiction came to be much clear, cause it seems only Yuna was extremely over scored today.

    Healing quality...? But I thought Yu-Na was God!

    Miki was totally robbed!!! If Laura pull another triple, i wouldn't be upset, but 3 triples???

    Whole FS was such a joke!! Too bad for Marai, pressure got to her!!
    I agree partially - Laura did get the "pretty bonus" - but it was for pretty skating!

    Miki - I like her - but what dull, disappointing programs from her this season.

    And can you stop pretending to be Chinese? Why would you do that?
    In fairness to nothingmuch, he/she wasn't lying that Yu Na is occassionally referred to as Diana on the Chinese forums.

    I saw the protocol and feel that Mao's PCS was rather low both at SP and LP. Miki has been receiving low PCS lately, too. Mirai dropped in her PCS in LP compared to SP. I would not comment if these are justifiable because I have watched only SP yet.

    Yes, typical Universal Sports to leave the audio (and sometimes video) feed running even after the program is over. It's interesting, but a little cringeworthy as well (as you never know what someone will say or do, and they don't seem to remember they are being filmed).

    I like Peter's idea of this being a continued skating show, though. They can have a lot more guests and rotate people involved and all.

    Carolina's silver, however, is much more debateable.
    The only problem for me was that Mao spend about 20 sec doing nothing much after that disasterous fall - that was worst fall ever I've seen from her.

    Yuna PCS is a joke!! 65+ for program with a fall, tentative and skating like, 'god, it's finished yet!!'
    She totally looks like she doesn't even wants to be in here.

When you answer that question. Can you then tell me how many triple-triple or double-triple did Kim do? So now that you know one of Asada's Triple Axel is downgraded, which lost roughly 5~6 points on that jump alone, do you still feel Asada was undermarked?
    Ha ha ha ha ha!!!

    Yuna scored 150 w/ perfect LP, and 130 w/ a fall on 3S and a popped 2A. I don't see anything wrong w/ her score.

    Er, I didn't say that Mao winning 2008 Worlds was unbelievable. I was reacting to Johnnnn's post that 2008 Worlds gold and silver was unbelievable. I do know that there are two parts of a competition.

    Really? That's your first post? I expect to see a lot of Yu-na hating after this. I think I'll have to take a break from the forum for a while...

    As for the scoring, I also thought it was unfair that Yu-na won Mao in the LP, but I want to see the protocals before saying too much. The PCS doesn't really work. Mao should've received more for two great performances. I have, however, recently joined that group of fans who think scores don't really matter, as long as they make no difference in placing. No one will remember exact scores years from now. What really matters is who got what medal. Mao definitely deserved the gold medal. She was the only highlight (with Mirai's SP) in an underwhelming event. When was the last time she put together two programs as great as those? I'm so glad she ended a supposed slump season on a high note to prove all of her doubters wrong. Now that she's proven she can do heavy music + win, I'm hoping she will return to music that really fits her I think Yu-na deserved silver. Who else should've received it? Laura who doubled almost every jump in her LP? This was a very underwhelming Worlds. Remember, Yu-na did 3Lz-3T, 3Lz, 3F and 2A-3T, which gives her the technical edge over Laura. She got all the big jumps down and did just enough to win in a splatfest. If Yu-na had received gold with those performances, I would've been very upset, but she got silver. Relax. There is some hope to figure skating. I don't really mind Laura winning bronze either. If Miki had done a bit better in the SP, I would've definitely rallied for her bronze, but Laura had the upperhand there. Laura has amazing qualities many current skaters lack. I just love to watch her skate. I probably wouldn't mind watching her performance minus jumps. Actually, I think I would prefer that . Mirai was my other highlight. She is the future. I hope she doesn't beat herself up for the LP. Not everyone medals at their first Worlds. Recently, only Mao and Yu-na did in 2007, and well, you know, they're out of this world when they're on.
