IJS started new trend last year...rewarding heavily on CONSISTENCY.

It is not really a new trend, rather, it is going back to old days when
consistent Michelle almost always beats exquisite Sasha.

Why?

Probably ISU realized there is NO WAY for other skaters to beat YUNA
if IJS put equal weight on PCS same as the JUMPS.

There are only TWO SKATERS...Yuna and Mao who have outstanding
skating skill...displaying BEAUTY OF ICE SKATING that create HUGE FOLLOWERS.

Going back to more weight on cosistency is...in a sense...good for the sport...
but definitely will hurt the ARTISTIC SIDE of the game.

Anyway...CONGRATULATIONS to MIKI for her 2nd World Title.
