    Thanks for explaining it. Guess I didn't make my question clear. My point was: if one did badly on technical side, then it was very unlikely that she wasn't distracted by those errors and so she couldn't present the program very well. I know there are several items in PCS. But at least some scores should be lower. So I was wondering if Makarova really did that well on PCS items.

    Well...I don't think so (and others do too). Her choreography in this program is awful, which negatively affects PE, IN, and CH.

    It is a shame Makarova doesnt have a better long. Personaly I think her short when skated as it was yesterday is up with Czisny and Kostner. It has complicated transitions. She just now seems to be getting comfortable with it. I also think she is a little disadvantaged when competing in Russia. The international judges have always received her well. She had a rough start to the season but seems to be building steam.

    Why would she be "disadvantaged" competing in Russia? She was born in Russia to Russian parents. Though the entire family moved to the US to open a skating school, she's always spoken Russian at home and has said that she considers herself Russian, not American. She returned to Russia more than a year ago to live and train permanently.

    I think she's disadvantaged in that in Russia she has to compete against a strong field domestically to land an international spot, especially for Worlds. Many American skaters with dual citizenship skate for other countries to have a better chance but Makarova is switching to a nation with a full house of top contenders.

    She's also been lucky that so many of the skaters above her are still too young to compete at Worlds. With the exception of her breakout season in 2010, she hasn't really put herself in a position to go to Worlds.

    some interesting quotes
    reason Alena needs to switch coach, she is getting tackier with him

    The student of Nikolai Morozov claimed that she never intended to withdraw from the event despite rumors that were circulating prior to the event.

    “In Canada, I had heard that my coach almost arranged a bye for me,” Leonova explained. “I was very surprised. I had always intended to compete at nationals, so as soon as I came back, I told him as much.”
    you think Mishin is pushing Lisa too much ? LOL

    :sheesh:

    “I do not know what happened,” said the 2011 Russian Junior champion. “I guess I was tired. In all my career in figure skating, I have never had so many competitions before the Russian Nationals. At first, it was easy for me to skate, but then I realized that I was running out of steam.”

    “I hope that I will be able to take a rest now, even though my coach has already told me that he expects me at practice first thing in the morning on December 31st,” Tuktamysheva said. “I do hope it is a joke.”

    She went to school in the US her whole life and only in January moved to Russia to train, where she also takes online college classes from a US college. As a previous poster noted she is no different than any other american skater, skating for another federation. In addition the competition from up coming skaters appears to be stronger than any other country??? Anyways. Given she has had an injury, cultural and coaching change over the last year, I think she is doing very well.

    And the U.S. couldn't hold onto her? She would have been an asset over here.
