I would take it as a compliment. As you said, he won with great skating skills and all other well executed elements. Unless you subconsciously think it was a shame or insult to skating that he won it that way, there is no reason for you to be afraid or automatically become defensive when people mention it. Let's face it: His three-fall win has set a high standard for all skaters who strive to be competitive, a standard that has been ingrained in everybody's mind. How can you stop people mentioning it? And why do you even attempt to do so? My logic is straightforward: If Kozuka couldn't win with two falls in this weak field, he should be worried and seeking areas for improvement in order to have any hope of challenging Chan, who could rightfully win a competition with three falls.
