She rotated almost 360 degrees on the ice for that '3loop' combo after landing the first 3flip. She also cheated a bit on the landing of that 3loop. The on-air rotations of that combo might be just short of 2 instead of 3. It's so blatant. I'm sure you can do a quad if you're allowed to rotate 4 circles on the ice.

While I think the tech panel was a little overly harsh on some occasions with Asada and Ando, the reason why their 3-3loops were being downgraded was because they were underrotated on the landing, it had little to do with the prerotation. Sotnikova makes the rotation on the landing, so it's not underrotated.

Yes i meant where she took off position wise, and where it looked like she landed. And I said I'm not an expert too.
