Live from the arena @euros2013 ))
She always gets huge PCS no matter how she skates. Don't you remember what happened in 09 Worlds and 10 Olympics? She was 21st in TES, but her PCS was 5th-7th around. She's almost got the highest PCS in each competition since 2010 even though her TES was weak. I think judges give her enough marks she deserves, sometimes more than she deserves, IMO.
Anyway, I agree that she was underscored a couple of points in this competition. I think scores between events are not comparable, I believe judges will give her the marks she deserves in major competition. We don't have to worry about this now
I like her new SP! - similar to her former programs, but enjoyed it! She always has a great music choice
For the longest time, she got 28-29, and 58-59 PCS for SP and LP. Never got the kind of PCS Wagner is getting for someone so "new" to the world scene.
Now compared to Yuna's SP score and PCS scores this season, it's another matter, but Yuna is unique to say the least...especially when it comes to short programs.
Kostner looks to be in good shape and I'm definitely looking forward to the showdown at Worlds.
Caroina Kostner 175.02
Carolina Kostner - 175.02 points overall. wins golden spin of Zagreb.
Program is amazing.
Not bad. Seems she wasn't in shape for the long:
Good for her for going for the 3Lutz.
