And she popped 2 jumps. And no 3-3 in the SP. That is why she lost.

Off the ice
Kostner lost her 3Lz because of an injury and hasn't been able to get it back consistently. OTOH, she has great technique on all her other jumps, good spins, very good choreography, and was getting level 4s on step sequences before the tech panels started handing them out like candy. How does that make for watered down programs? Not having a 3Lz means the rest of the program is worthless? Do you really need to disparage Kostner to make Kim look good?

Tripping on the Podium
True, but yes, there is nobody else but this worthless channel. I'm furious about the amount of Mao fluff b/c it was EXCESSIVE. It seriously made me want to root AGAINST her. Akiko was barely mentioned.

Looking forward to the videos!
