    I feel sorry for both Akiko and Mao. Akiko probably feels so screwed over now, and Mao is completly embarassed.
    Maybe even silver would be justifiable, Mirais score wasn't that high, maybe there ware some UR's again, but gold is just wrong.

    Sad for Akiko :(. She should have won this by a mile. Her and Mao's PCS should have been switched (this would have put Mao in 3rd place in the LP).

    I agree with you. The "competetion" was rigged to give Asada a victoy, no matter how she skated. She should have never been in first place after the short program. The replays showed that her 3F was clearly underrotated. And then she "wins" the competition with that laughable free skate? Where did she get her technical points? The technical content in that program was below a junior level. The judges must have given her crazy GOEs on her non-jump elements, because her jumping ability is pathetic these days.

    I believe the UK commentators called it "a travesty of justice". I agree.

    I would have placed Akiko first at SC and NHK , though i adore both Osmond who is a great new young talent and the beautiful graceful Mao. Hopefully she has a better short so when its close and she skates a better free she will gain enough points when she is not the favourite.

    This is really bad. We all love Mao, so we will surely not bash her.

    The judges deserve the bashing for that judging. It's an embarrassing for the sport!

    This is a total shocker! INSANE judging!!! How can they sleep without feeling GUILTY with what they do. The technical panel and all the other judges should be banned from judging from here on. They should never be behind those computer at any competetion. ABSOLUTELY CRAPOLA!

    This! It isn't Maos fault. She surely has issues still overthinking probably nervousness and all and now people will see her as the one in the wrong when she obviously knows that things went wrong and the judges are the ones to blame. And Akiko skates the free of her life and well....

    Mao's a wonderful skater, and the horrible judging shouldn't take away from that. You could tell she was shocked by the marks as well. Hopefully this will cause the judges and the JSF to wake up and start giving Akiko the love she deserves.

    Yes its not Mao's fault she did her best even though she made errors. No one can deny she has wonderful qualities in her skating. Very beautiful on the ice. Judges certainly confuse me.

    I feel bad for Mao. She looked so stunned. And she had to just sit there awkwardly as they announced her as 1st place and nobody cheered.


    Since she only won by .05, I don't know if the judges actually fixed it so she would definitely win. But they certainly tried their best to give her a shot at it! Wow.
