Carolina skated clean because here jumps were easy and beautiful and there is no request to do 3-3. Yes, she said she had in mind to to 3-3, but... the program didn't appear to luck something.
The step sequence at Torino gave her 6 points. No idea how much she got yesterday, but it makes up for the difference. She had higher TES and higher PCS than every one else and those who have seen her live can say she skates faster than everyone else. It's much more difficult to skate a program with her speed and that is rewarded
