Was Suzuki twice a victim of underscoring and pageantry in PCS?
I feel for Akiko Suzuki. She has skated the performance of her life and one of the greatest skates in the history of figure skating and she was underscored in terms of her PCS scores.
I do hope the ISU won't inflate PCS scores so much to hold up some skaters. I know it's not the fault of the skaters but I do hope ISU would look into this.
Akiko clearly deserved 8.0 or even 9.0 for her PCS and she did not get it. The beauty points does help in terms of PCS but it's still about the skating and skating from the heart.
I do hope she would get the marks she deserves.
