Adelina Sotnikova made an astounding debut on the JGP in Austria. Great speed, huge jumps and mature presentation for her age but to me, she clearly takes off on an inside edge on her lutz yet did not get a "WEED". In fact, she got positive GOE's for it.
Can someone explain this to me?
Also, I was very impressed with Christina Gao. In my opinion, she is on track to be the next great American skater. She was given a "WEED" for her lutz, which I agree with but Sotnikova's lutz is just as much as a flutz as Gao's.
Help! I'm so confused. If this is the case, then this is another clear case of unfair judging.
