I feel sorry for Caroline Zhang
caroline got cheated out of at least 6 points in the short.
at least 3 points in the long.
she can skate as clean as she like, well as she likes, not get the scores she deserves or earns.
i can think of one good reason. 1) didn't want her up there-starting why back,
2) complaining her going back to worlds.
3) complaining shouldn't been up in gp when 13, when she was assigned without asking by the usfsa.\
4) the yearly overlooking of ur/downgrades of other skaters, and her continuing hawk like looking at her jumps.
why only the federation, u.s ogm medalist knows-why keep asking them. why cheated for.
hasn't figure skating learned anything regarding the lance armstrong mess about continual cheating, and lying especially to public.
wonder why fans don't want to come back.
She has made no improvements in rotating her jumps in the last year, and it has been a persistent problem. I feel bad that the jumps don't come to her as easily now as they did when she was younger, but I think her scores are accurate.
After Caroline's short program scores came up, I heard lots of boo's from the audience.
And after her freeskate, the audience rose to their feet and applauded.
Somebody needs to tell those people about her rotations.
A lot of skaters have this problem and I don't know why. If you look at skaters 20 years ago hardly anyone underrotated their jumps. Now that it's penalized you see so much of it; it makes no sense.

I don't know about that. 20 years ago no-one paid close attention to whether jumps were complete;y rotated or not. It took a really bad effort for the commentators to call a jump "cheated on the landing."
