    Cynthia has such stunning eyes. Nice to see her with no falls and all smiles this time.

    I guess no lutz or flip. I hope that doesn't cost her. I kind of like her skating and I'm not into Amelie's skating at all but Amelie may deserve it this year depending.

    It's fun researching the veteran skaters. You'll find some who really amaze you. We're so lucky nowadays: YouTube is like a time machine. We can even see skaters from the sixties and earlier. Some of the earlier skaters make you realize how far the sport has progressed. But others are awesome to watch even today. Have you ever seen John Curry's 1976 Olympic long program, for example, or the early achievements of Gordeyeva and Grinkov? A vast treasure house of skating enjoyment awaits you!
    Haha I'll definitely look into those suggestions!

    ^ Falls can be better than pops because you get partial credit, sometimes quite a lot of it! A pop is wasted space.

    Falls are severely penalized but on a fully rotated high value jump, there may be enough points left to be worth it than a popped jump with practically no Base Value. Falling on a low value jump will likely wipe out all points, plus hurting PCS.

    Hmm, LaCoste gave it away. I have no idea why she keeps trying to do the Triple Flip.

    Do the relative values of falls and pops fluctuate each season as the rules are changed? It must be so frustrating for coaches and skaters to have to learn new rules every year.
