So happy for Miki as well! It's so nice to see her hard work pay off. She's SO fast and strong.
Yuna: Meh artistry, but generally good technical.
Carolina: Love her costume, the music. It's good to see her on the podium again.
Alena: Love, love, love this girl.
Kanako: oh well, better luck next time! She's very good.
Alissa: Surprised she didn't fall on everything, just one jump.
Flatt: so embarrassing. Why did she even show up?
And Miki wins the post-Olympic Worlds (although she's OTP at the big event)
Here is the an excerpt from the ISU protocol:Originally Posted by BoP
Ando's spins: FSSp4 = 3.0 ; CCoSp4 = 3.5 ; FCCoSp4 = 3.5
Kim's spins: FSSp4 = 3.0 ; CCoSp4 = 3.5 ; LSSp4 = 2.7
Notice the bold part in red, which indicated the only different spin type between the two skaters given that the other two cancel each other out and are indicated in green to make obvious. If you really want to do a good job at BS through a lot of words, at least get your facts right.yeah, she did, so did Kim. :sheesh: Except Ando also took advantage of the rules which allowed an additional CCoSp if it's preceded by a flying entry, hence opened up an advantage of 0.7 in BV (I made an error by stating it to be 0.5 when it really should be 0.7 earlier). Do you understand what FCCoSp means? It's a type of Flying Spin. It's an upgrade because normally a Level 4 Flying Spin worth only 3.0 or 3.2 if it's a FCSp4 but in this case, she received 3.5 in lieu of 3.0. I am convinced you didn't even bother check your facts before writing all these BS by drowning readers with your sea of words otherwise if you had just opened the protocol, it's written right there on Page #1, there is not even the need to scroll down.Originally Posted by BoP
I am not even going to bother with the rest. It's amusing how you have two standards for applying penalty on errors where Chan can receive double of the deduction for a lesser error while Czisny's error, a fall, only should be deducted based on the existing rule and how suddenly, you claim "How I want CoP to be graded on the tech mark is not the system that was in place here". That certainly wasn't the tune you were singing in the Men's LP thread and how you justified placing Chan behind Kozuka even though I have not heard from another human being whether here or elsewhere, including well known Chan haters on GS that actually agreed with you. There is no intellectual consistency in your statements. This is a waste of time. You got skin thicker than an elephant, maybe this is what it takes to live in Hollywood, if so thanks but no thanks. You won, Mr. Trump, I am fired.
2007: 2 falls on LP
2008: 1 fall in SP, 1 pop jump in LP
2009: 1 badly underroatated 2S in Lp
2010: 1 < jump, + missed spins and spiral, 1 fall and 1 poped jumps (prob her worst competition)
2011: 1 set out in SP, one poped jumps and 1 minor mistake on singling a jump.....
I would hardly call that consistent!! To be hornest her olympics performance was the most dynamic and cleanest of her career!! Don't get me wrong, Yuna did have the potential to match Michelle a complishment, but what stopping her from winning multiple WC title is herself...
I think Kozuka deserved to place ahead of Chan in the Long Program under the CURRENT scoring system. He factually received a higher technical score than Chan did from the judges/scoring system at the event and it was Chan's PCS that won him the LP. I believe Chan deserved higher PCS than Kozuka, although not nearly to the extend that the judges handed out, and I believe Kozuka should have been even further ahead of Chan on the tech mark, under the criteria of the CURRENT scoring system, putting him slightly ahead overall in the LP. Chan obviously deserved to win the entire competition by a long way when taking the SP into account.
Like you said, Yuna probably achieved everything a figure skater could dream to achieve... she acquired every possible title there is!!! Not to mention she has the highest world records AND I don't think I need to list all her other achievements....
It's difficult to have a motivation to return to competitions after achieving everything that you could dream of. I mean, isn't that why it took Plushenko several years to return to the competition!!!!!!!!!??
Anyone who's watched Yuna closely during her career knows how determined and hard working she is. If she wasn't, she would never have survived in the skating world with all the injuries that she suffered and all her other hardships that she went through.
As a fan, I am just happy and thankful that she returned to the field and showed us beautiful performances... and I hope Yuna won't ever care about her unreasonable and disrespectful haters.
Also, I tried watching both Yuna and Miki's performances without their music.
If you haven't tried it, I suggest that you do, and you will see the difference between
their performances. I wish Yuna won, and I do think that she deserved to have won. But regardless of the color of her medal, Yuna will always be the true champion to me.

Yuna was so consistent with her performances that in fact I remember everyone expecting to set a new world record every competition.

And really I think the fact that she's never been OTP her entire career is in itself evidence of her consistency unless you want to argue that consistent skaters must always deliver clean programs. Then it'd be interesting to see which skaters you would actually consider consistent.
And frankly I don't understand why you're saying Yu-na didn't win multiple World Titles because of her own faults because I never said Yu-na deserves any of the titles she's lost. I'm sorry if my post was misleading (although I think my thoughts were pretty clear). I just said it's interesting she isn't a multiple World Champion. She's won 13 out of her 19 senior competitions, but out of the six she lost, four were Worlds. She just doesn't seem to have much luck when it comes to the WC.
