Rather a domination here!
The choreography not being CoP friendly is not a measure of Michelle's abilities but of the demands of choreography at the time. Of course it wasn't CoP friendly because she was not skating to CoP. Lori Nichol, Kwan's best and most compatible choreographer, has since become a splendid CoP choreographer, with her work helping skaters to win OGMs in both men's and pairs in 2010. Surely if Michelle were at her physical peak and skating now, she would have programs that would give her the most points for her efforts.

These two skaters were among the best of their era, but they weren't training to skate in 2010. Just imagine how terrible Yuzuru Hanyu would have been at school figures--unless, that is, he had trained for them since childhood.

Unfortunately, Mao's Worlds FS and Akiko's NHK and WTT FS scores are not high enough to come into this...
