Not sure which one is dumber, google translate or the one who reads it as it is. I have to agree julia has to improve showmanship. Every skaters should take some acting leasons. Fake it till you make it, act like youre the best and doesnt give a fck when you fall to your butt in your jumps. After all this sports is a subjective sport. If you act anmd feel like a champion, judges and even fans would atleast think that you are a capable to win. Example, elizaveta, not so good basics, so-so coreo, tacky costume and good jumps, but oozing confidence and belief in self = contender/ possible champ. But then i might be wrong lol
I know Julia didn't mean that Mao was nothing special, it just sounded a little irritating to me - like she was pretty indifferent there. But I don't mean to over-interpret those sentences and think ill of Julia or anything. She's a sweet girl, I know she didn't mean to speak bad about anyone else.
well the only thing i remember about Julia's program is her robotic way of skating and freakish flexibility, and for me what makes a great program great, is when it's memorable! and hers definitely wasn't.
I loved Mao's new sp, once again it's something different, the steps were exquisite, loved the flow and speed. I also think that her interpretation of the music was spot on. she also really looked like she was having fun out there!
even I when translating from google had to manually erase and change many things from the words used by google
though I agree that her coach should have told her that Finlandia was inflated scoring
