Her technical base value is not that high and her non-jump elements are all over the place in terms of levels, so what keeps her scores high is the huge PCS and goe she receives!


    the funny thing for me is that you guys seem to have forgotten the actual performance of kim due to her high score, she has alot of work to do on every part of her skating her spins, steps, stamina, flexibility, edgework........

    Another thing is that some of you seem to think of Kim performance at vancouver as something unbeautable, well through she received an outrages score there, if one looks at her techical BV, once again it wasn't really that high but it once again the goe that she received that made her score alot higher.

    After the vancouver games some of the flaws of COP where corrected, one of them was reducing the amount og goe, so the same performance at vancouver would not score anywhere near today!
    Here is Guidlines for marking +GOE.

    After reading this, you can understand why she get so high GOE.

    FOR + 1 : 2 bullets FOR + 2 : 4 bullets FOR + 3 : 6 or more bullets
    1) unexpected / creative / difficult entry
    2) clear recognizable steps/free skating movements immediately preceding element
    3) varied position in the air / delay in rotation
    4) good height and distance
    5) good extension on landing / creative exit
    6) good flow from entry to exit including jump combinations / sequences
    7) effortless throughout
    8) element matched to the musical structure

    There are several things that usually Kim are satisfied. (In 2009~2010 Season)

    1) step seq + Jump
    Inna baur + Jump
    spread Igeal + Jump ect

    2) exception 3-3 combination, 3lz, 3f,
    It is hard to recognize where is enterance.

    3) she is already known for delayed jump.(NBC made some video about it)

    4) Well known - many commentator already said about it.

    5) she is already known for delayed jump.(NBC made some video about it)

    6) Just watch video, she has amazing speed.

    7) Also Well known - many commentator already said about it.

    8) Also Well known - many commentator already said about it.

    If you have another opinion, it is okay to reply on it.
    Before you said about GOE, it is good to see this page.
    I always go there and study to understand new judge system

    I don't want say about other's favorite player.(It could be harsh)
    How about to judge your favorite player???

    I just say about Kim, but Karolina also has good jumps (If she is "on")

    In theory they are, but not in reality. Technical mistakes can and do affect transitions, interpretation, execution, performance, etc. especially when the technical elements are an integral part of the choreography and interpretation. Expression, choreography, etc. these are not separate elements that stand apart from jumps, spins or steps--if they do it's a very poorly constructed program.

    So if Carolina has a meltdown like Vancouver several of her component scores can justifiably be marked down compared to her cleaner performances.

    I agree that PCS are independent from TES, and Carolina is a great skater who deserves to get huge PCS. But I have to admit that her PCS at Golen Spin was a bit overrated. Great skating skills, but she was very slower than usual, poor transitions (her program is empty!), I'd not give her high marks on performance-execution / interpretation / choreography. Having said that it was the B competition which is very generous to skaters, so I'm OK with that.
    What I don't like and can't stand is Carolina usually wins thanks to her huge PCS. I read somewhere that 70-80% of her winning is due to her PCS (funny thing is it's 2-3 times more than Patrick Chan) Don't get me wrong, I like Caro, she's very talented. But I don't want to see skaters winning thanks to their huge PCS. It's a sports, not a dance event!

    According to descriptions in ISU rules even the component called "Performance/Execution" generally is assumed to be separate from jumps. Of course, errors on jumps will affect the overall impression of the program and somehow will affect PCS too, but by rules each element should be scored one time only, so the skaters should not receive several rewards or deductions for the same thing.
    Spins, steps, etc., are quite different from jumps in that matter, because transitions, skating skills, etc., are parts of step/choreography sequences, so here this principle of separation doesn't really work, but PCS should be the overall score of all those elements, while TES evaluates each separately.

    The point is that, however, jumps should not affect PCS unless after making an error it affected skater's performance after the jump itself.

    I would be cautious in evaluating her performance at Zagreb, because personally I didn't see a good video with it. On what I saw, I can't really conclude whether or not it was truly the score she had to receive. But it wasn't an unusual score for her.
    I do understand why people don't like when someone wins by PCS, because, first of all, it is always more subjective than TES and then PCS are simply not very impressive compared to jumps. The problem is that polishing skating skills and transitions requires a lot of work and talent, almost the same amount as for jumps. This is why so many people don't get Patrick Chan or Carolina Kostner (heck, I myself don't really get Patrick that much)... But the system has to be balanced somehow and it would be unfair to break the balance in favor of jumps, I guess. It doesn't help that judges generally tend to be generous with PCS and that, unlike TES, PCS doesn't vary so much - you can have a bad day and make tons of mistakes on jumps, but you can't forget your skating skills.
    I guess we still have to accept this, because changing this fragile balance would affect figure skating very much and, probably, not for good.

    mary01, so in your opinion who in the ladies field deserves high(er than Yuna's) GOEs on jumps?

    The quality of that video was not good, so it's hard to judge whether or not it was deserving. Given that it was the B competition and Caro was superior to anyone in that competition, I'm fine with her PCS.
    I was complaining about win by PCS, but the irony is that I still like Caro and love Patrick even though they make many mistakes and take golds thanks to their huge PCS, lol. I don't want to see win by PCS, but I don't like to see jumping bean's winning, either. LOL.


    Kim Sun Young of Yu Na's management agency, All That Sports, informed Ice Time in an email from Seoul on Monday that a decision on her participation on the Four Continents will come next month.
    "She hasn't decided to go Osaka yet. I can tell you in January if she will compete at Four CC or not," the email stated.
    Kim Sun Young confirmed that Yu Na will next lace up her skates for the Korean nationals (Jan. 4-6).
    I hope Yuna goes to 4CC, she needs to experience big competition before Worlds.

    BTW that picture of Yuna is... Great air position, though!

    That's a very interesting development. Yuna's agency had been rather firm up until now that she was only competing at NRW Trophy, Korean Nationals and Worlds. Now they've publicly acknowledged that Yuna is seriously considering 4CC? She's definitely more serious about this season than in 2010-2011.

    I think it would be a great boost for her to compete in another high-profile international event before Worlds. She does have nationals, but that's hardly a "competition" for her.

    Yuna's story is pretty much the same but Mao is radically different with no ability to do triple Axels anymore or no ability to do more than 4 triples in a free skate. Mao is terrible at jumps now and would have to go to Sochi as the great artistic skater with severe jump impairments but her sky high pcs and spin and step levels can make triple jumps mostly meaningless.

    If she skates a clean 7 triples, you think the judges will give Kim with 6 triples a win? This is Kostner, not Tuktamisheva.
    So show me this mythical Perfect LP by CaroK with 7 triples.

    ANY top skater who skates PERFECT with 7 triples can beat Yuna. The key being PERFECT SKATE WITH 7 TRIPLES (don't forget PERFECT SP with 3Lz,3T [or 3L] and 3F and 2A [3A]). When was the last time we saw one of those?

    So please show me who did this mythical perfect programs that "blew" Kim's Vancouver performance.

    The skaters most likely to show up with 7 triples probably wouldn't have the pcs if they weren't Kim. Whoever shows up with like 8's in pcs will win. Triples have not mattered for 3 seasons now. Pcs matters more then jumps.

    Consistency matters more at the Olympics- people want to see a rather clean performance win at this biggest event. It's possible that Mao could have a "clean" skate- no falls- but she's likely to be dinged with more deductions than Yuna, who possesses cleaner technique. And with an overall rise in PCS (except for Liza, damnit!), I doubt Yuna's would be hurt by other's rise. Plus she got a level 4 in steps at NRW, a first, but it's a start. So Yuna is still the one to beat in Sochi.
    As for Caro's fabled 7 triple clean free, it would get a monstrous score, but it's as likely as Yuna getting her loop back. And if she did, she would get positive goe, and would free her to do her own 7 triple program. Note CoR '07, when she set a world record. Don't be surprised if a clean 7 triple Yuna gets 140+ today. Caro would never "blow" it out of the water, unless Speedy says so.

    Don't know when was the last time Carolina went clean with seven triples in the free skate, but Yuna herself has done it several times in her earlier career:

    2005 GPF

    2006 Korean Nationals

    2007 Cup of Russia

    If we're going to compare highest potential to highest potential, it might be more fair to consider a 7-triple Yuna (which has actually happened before) vs. a 7-triple Carolina.

    A 7 triple Yuna will beat a 7 triple Carolina. Yuna would have many more lutzes. May not beat a 7 triple (with 3A) Mao.
    A 7 triple Carolina will beat a 6 triple Yuna, Mao.
    A 7 triple Mao will beat 6 triple Yuna, Carolina.

    All 3 are creme de la creme for ladies.

    I generally prefer Carolina programs over the other two, but the other two are technically better.

    Carolina did it at 2003 Europeans

    Layout
    3L
    3Z-3T
    3F-3T
    2A-3S
    3L

    This was pre COP when I guess you could opt to do less jumping passes. Still Carolina has done seven triples at one point, so it's not a myth (or rare as a unicorn, as Flattfan would say).

    ETA:

    Of course this layout would be quite tough to do under COP. She would have to do like two double jumps like a 2A and a 2Z for example.

    3Lz-3T and 3F-3T!!
    But she doubled her 3Lo, so it's not a clean program.
