Sorry for the OT.
Sorry for the OT.
I am very happy for Gracie and Kiira. I wish Adelina could have done better, that flip is a nightmare. At least she could have double it this time but not single again.
Well, unlike AnnaTheMusician, I am not finn, I am roumanian but I am sick entire of people criticizing Kiira for being beautiful, it is a curse to be beautiful that you cant see the beauty of her skating beacuse of her natural beauty? I mean she really is good, not overscored, just check the protocols, everything is explained there.
If Kiira is Beauty PCS than what is Alena?? She dresses ugly, I dont like the way she moves, the expression of her face, her hair looks awful most of the time and she scored the same PCS as Kiira. Than she had no axel. Kiira has 61,54 points and Alena 58,85, so where is the inflation? Kiira kas the best loop of female skaters and also gourgeus double axel for whom she always receives fair extra points.
In Coc everybody was complaining after SP like always, Kiira is the favourite of the judges, she is overscored, Mirai is far better but after LP where she had 5 clean triples including 3T-3T and lutz with no edge compared to Mao with only 3 clean triples and no lutz and Mirai with only one triple, nobody said anything anymore about Kiira. No apreciation words, no nothing. Just winning about Mao or Mirai. So, the fact that she is not loved here, no matter what she does. Because mMo and Mirai did a lot of mistakes, Mao even won only with her PCS but she had a lot of people to love her and say she was great even with so many mistakes and she deserved to win because she was a beauty on ice. Then, Mirai with all her more than visible UR and slow skating also had people saying she was nice to watch. Well, Kiira has me and Anna and the judges too see she never flutzes, never UR, sometimes she misses some jumps but she has perfect technique jumps, perfect spins, stepsequences and great skating skills. And when something is wrong I always see it in her panel, like it was today the Lsp2.
Anyway, besides Kiira, I am a fan of Gracie and Adelina and I wish them all the bes for tomorrow FS. I hope all of them make the podium.
LMAO, Murakami gets another 100% BOGUS < call on her 3Toe-3Toe. This is bizarro and wrong and stupid.
However, I'm SO happy for Gracie, I was very disappointed with her SC result, I hope she'll win a medal here... Beautiful program from Kiira, with a 3-3 this could have been around 65! Leonova what a studpid mistake! She was already smiling after the flip, she wasn't focused, after the first spin I thought "There's still one jump left, is she concentrated enough?", the answer came two seconds later: no! But I have to say that I liked it, except her arms posture before the combo and the flip... It's really horrible, she should at least TRY to look like if she was listeting to the music! She actually begins interpreting the program after the flip! And that mistake for Sotnikova, another , I'm really tired of her making mistakes EVERY time she skates... the last time she skated a clean SP it was almost a year ago, at the Russian Nationals (and she had a <, so the last time she skated a totally clean SP it was in the JGP! ), please, Adelina, skate a good FS!! Valentina...
And can please someone explain to me why Marchei's And Zawadzki's spins were level 1??!!

Wow...back to the drawing board again for Zhang.
Are you serious?!? It is so obvious, not even watching it in slow-mo, that she underrotates most of her jumps. It becomes even more clear in slow-mo that her blade hits the ice before it should. If you can't see it, I suggest you buy yourself a pair of glasses.
This Korpi beauty debate (and all the others) should die for good because it offends everyone: the judges, the other skaters (implying that they are not beautiful) and of course Kiira herself. It's all based on an assumption. None of us knows how the judges feel about her looks. Maybe they find her so hideously repulsive that they give her pity points. To me that makes just as much sense as the other bias theories.
She DOES get a beauty bump.
I get the sense Kiira is someone who is probably more appreciated in person than on TV. She does seem to have nice ice coverage and very good skating skills. And the program is quite well-choregraphed.
I do enjoy this moment where she transitions with a counter (or rocker?) into that spin, it's a nice choreographic moment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LC9ooSW2Q4c#t=03m06s
Kiira skated a beautiful program.Where does all the negativism come from?
Zawadski lost on the levels of the spins.
