    Thanks for the info! Same teams for both 4CC and Worlds? I was hoping Kozuka or Oda would get 4CC, but no denying that Mura has earned the spots

    Congrats to everyone, esp. Mura who really put it out there.

    So sad for Kozuka, but maybe next season...

    Yep, sad to think we won't see Kozuka again this season. Now I hope that Mura will deliver in both competitions.

    Poor Kozuka and Oda, this is really weird; usually they don't send top 3 to 4cc!

    May be because Kozuka is still injured?

    No. 4CC is in Osaka. That's why.

    Speaking of Osaka, I'm a little surprised to see Oda was not chosen. The gap between 3rd and 4th is small. Many people wouldn't disagree if Oda was the 3rd. It's apparent that the JSF wants to give better supports to Mura as the #2 man after Sochi, or even the 3rd man at Sochi.

    Oda is from Osaka? And the 4CC will be held in Osaka, right? Oh, poor Oda. He didn’t skate that bad and 4th place finish at this tough competition is pretty good.

    Don’t just look at the landing picture. You should look at the gif first and then you compare to the landing screenshot and you’ll see that is the moment when his skate hit the ice, meaning that’s his landing. Judges and experts all count that as a skater’s landing. Then he rotated the rest of his rotation on the ice and got into a better position, which casual fans usually mistake that for the landing when it isn’t. But anything a skater does after the initial landing doesn’t count.

    It's a bummer for Oda, because he only missed the podium by two points or so and he actually finished third in the FS.

    In that screenshot his blade was not hitting the ice. The slow motion video is much more clear.

    Is there any news on who from Russia is going to 4CC and Worlds?

    Check out the Ladies thread in the Russian Nationals folder.

    To me, under-rotation is cheating and does not show real athleticism. I never liked how Sarah Hughes cheated her jumps. It’s like in a 10,000 m running event, your rivals run 25 laps but you only run 24 laps. That’s cheating. If your rivals can rotate their jumps but you cannot, then you should not get same points as your rivals on those jumps. Otherwise it’s not fair.

    Plus, I don’t think we need to look at the protocols to tell if the jumps are under-rotated or there was a wrong edge takeoff. Many times I watch the replay and immediately know that it’s a URed jump. I know some people don’t like falls, some don’t like popped jumps, others can’t stand terrible skating skills, etc. I think all these mistakes should be punished, including UR and wrong edge takeoff. JMO.
    Once we accept the premise of the CoP, that a figure skating performance is to be judged by how many hundredths of a point a skater gets for this skill and for that, then there is no escaping the justice of your argument.

    My objection is that this way of looking at figure skating has robbed it of its soul, without really making it any more acceptable as a "real sport" to the general public than it was before. (A minority opinion, to be sure. )

    I am pretty sure nobody from Russia is going to 4CC.

    That could be a typo. Anyway, MK's Winter, Liza, Adelina, and Nikol Gosviani are going to Euros.

It doesn't fit the sportsmanship and spirit of fair play.
    No, that was not my choice but the tech panel’s choice. The tech panel went blind eye on Takahashi’s 3T< (?) in the 3Lz3T in the SP, which was on the verge of UR, so they had to go blind eye on Yuzru’s 3T< (?) since it was in the same situation as Takahashi’s 3T. Plus, the tech panel also went blind eye on Takahashi’s 3A< in the SP and 3A<2T<2Lo< and 3Lz (e) 3T in the LP.

    If they called on Yuzru’s 3T< but didn’t call Takahashi’s 3T<, etc., then it would not fit “the spirit of fair play.” They had to either call on both 3T’s or call on neither. What they should not have done was call on one person’s 3T but not call on the other.
