Mao had 4 triples in her SP & LP. Three of them were 3Lo, and the other was 3S. No 3-3, and her most difficult jump was 3Lo.
(If Chan had won with those jump contents... I'm sure someone might have said 'overscored' or something... )
I think Mao's other qualities are superior to Julia, so she should get high PCS. But Mao needs to work on her jumps if she wants to win Worlds, or next Olympic.

Never watching three triple Mao. Ever.

I think Julia is going to get hit hard when her body changes. She's grown in height but still has a little girls body. I'm not sure those rather tiny jumps will survive. I know that horrible looking 2axel won't survive.
So what did she deserve in your opinion? What component should have been lower?Originally Posted by mikeko666
And I don't care much for the exact number a skater gets in PCS, I'm mainly looking at the relation between skaters - events are scored differently anyway and I have to admit I'm not exactly having a strong imagination where the difference between a 7 and a 7.25 lies - I know if something should be a 8 or a 9 for me, but the rest...
Despite that, Mao popped 3 of her jumps - and not all of them like you make it sound. The 3S got an UR call, but underrotations are hardly disrupting a program, just if they're additionally flawed - like two-footed or resulting in a stand still - which didn't happen with Maos.
And to answer your question: if a skater goes out there and does 7 triple jumps, all with UR call but all of them nearly not visible to the naked eye without slow motion - than yes, I think that skater could get huge PCS without having done one clean triple. And I think that would be completly rightfully so.
@FSGMT: completly agreed Mao still lacks more power and speed, but she looked solid and has other great qualities to her skating. I think her score is fair.
Can we start a new thread about PCS and leave it out of the CoC ladies FS thread?
I would've liked Mirai to win bronze after watching hers and Korpi's performance. Mirai deserved the downgrade on the 2A-3T and the underrotation on the 2L at the end of her 3 jump combo. The other underrotation calls were really weird to me (really how was the last loop << ?). Mirai's been plagued with edge calls in the past few years by the tech panel. 2010-2011: she lips. 2011-2012: she flutz. She started out flutzing and now she's lipping. She must be so confused. She has a cleaner performance than Korpi too. I also think her program is comparable to Mao's and Kiira's, and my favorite among the American ladies (yes, I prefer it over Wagner's). Under 7 for transitions??? and most insulting is PCS so close to Lipnitskaia's. Lipnitskaia's program has nothing special except for jumps, can't even hold a strong edge... Speed wise Mirai and Kiira were top of the field. Julia has little ice coverage and Mao was more timid that JO
I'm not getting what you want at all. Guess that's fineOriginally Posted by mikeko666
Three triple Mao did win! It wasnt a worlds and it was "only" cup of china but she did.
