Reading all the comments one thing is interesting to note. Skating skills holding up the likes of Mao, Korpi is akin to pcs holding up precariously P and B in dance. I don't know why people are so mad about Chan and his pcs at least he truly is superior at pcs.

Skater Boy, I completely agree with you! That's what I was complaining.

In ladies, Kostner and Yuna are the best. Nobody can match their SS and speed. They have wow factor. But in case of Mao, I don't know.. She has softness and lightness, but lacks speed and power.
Anyway, I think people have double standard towards Patrick chan

Tripping on the Podium
woooaahh, seriously never seen someone sooo BITTER, and LET ME SAY IT AGAIN MAO LANDED 5 TRIPPLE JUMPS in the free skate, them not all being perfect (according to the caller) doesn't make them disappear, means she still gets credit for them! and those mistakes never interrupted the program, they weren't even noticeable to the naked eye. where as the other skaters mistakes with falls and popped jumps where DISRUPTING the whole program and the flow!

Don't get the outrage. Mao was the best yesterday. Julia suffered from skating right after Mao. I was in the arena and even Julia's dress looked ridiculous/cheap after Mao skated. Julia's program just wasn't up to the aesthetic level and lightness Mao's was. I thought if she had skated a few people before Mao she probably would have scored a little better.
I thought Zijun's program was better in flow and choreography than Kiira, Mirai and Julia. Really liked that routine. Mirai's program was rather very dull. Zijun seemed lowballed in PCS both is sp and lp.

I think Asada's victory is undeserved, too. Yeah her presentation is really good, but she has only two clean triples (loop and salchow). Her triple flips are underrotated, not only in the free skate, but also in the short. Her lutz gets edge call, even when she doesn't double it. So she has loop, salchow, toeloop and double axel consistantly. She was much better than this. Sorry to say that but level of Asada is regressing. I'm sad to see that but truth is ugly sometimes. Also the unseen mistakes of her with naked eye doesn't mean that she deserved to win. Last year I was angry to judges when they gave Kostner too high components score, but now I regret. She didn't have lutz but at least her jumps were fully rotated and clean which means she deserved high presentation score. She deserved to be a Euros and a Worlds champion for last year. But if Mao skates like this and the judges give titles to her for her well presentation of unseen mistakes and name, for me this is given not earned! Poor Mao, I hope she can correct her mistakes and next time can be the clear winner.

A big Congratulations to Mao!!!! She was IMO the Class of the field!

↓ the constant look on my face
So maybe you'll be coming up with an answer making sense, in contrast to gmyers just looking at protocols instead of even watching the programs: who should have won?

Yes, this is the real question: Mao's program wasn't her best, and it was not a high-level program, but it deserved 1st place. That's all.

I found it strange that no body got full credits on Flips except Julia's at FS. Besides,Mirai's Lz,Mao's first F,Zijun's F as first jump of 3-3 and Julia's Lz were not the quality of URs or DGs.
