    Men where better in 4CC? At Euros almost all men skated their best or near the best, it was a very entertaining final, how men in 4CC did that?

    This is a dreamy podium btw!

    I do agree Europeans was more entertaining and great quality in the top 3 men. I watched over again but don't think i will rewatch 4cc free programs. Top 3 women at 4cc are worth watching again though.

    How can you get a positive goe on an under rotated jump (mao). The gold and bronze medalist sure did get a lot of ur's and edge calls.

    It's now up to the judges' discretion. GOE rules were relaxed to allow for it. Only falls have to be in the negative (for the free skate).

    Gao was so close to the podium. But she did well and so much better than her compatriots. Not sure if this will change any of the US judges' opinion, but oh well.

    It is up to the judges. It was reasonable to give positive goe if they did not think the jump was under rotated, even though the technical specialist thought it that way.

    The only underrotated jump pass that she got positive GOE for was the 2A+3T<. It didn't seem underrotated in real time and furthermore she only got +0.07 GOE for it, so I'm not sure what your point is.
    About the edge calls, the top 8 (!) in the free skate got one each, so I don't know why you're singling out Mao and Kanako.

    So Gao beat Gold. I guess Gold-flation is only in the U.S. not international...

    The British commentators said Gao had the flu at Nationals. I never heard that reported during Nationals.

    Gracie has been seeing a sports psychologist, but if that was really her problem here, it doesn't seem to have been of much help.

    That's because they confused Christina with Mirai Nagasu.

    Murakami, I see the improvements, and I love the second half of the program but the under rotations are frequent and I don't know what she can really do to fix them




    We'll see
    She and Mao had the same number of Ur's in the long program. She has longer to fix her's than Mao does at this late stage of her career.

    Wow Mao!! that was really beautiful, regardless of urs . If someone told me a month ago that she would lang a 3a and a 3-3 in the same program this season I would have told them they were crazy. She really is a special lady

    Sorry, I didn't mean to single them out for the edge calls but for the UR's. My point was that I was surprised you can get a positive goe for a ur. Intuitively one would not think that to be the case. I didn't know the rule about it. Personally I think the tech call should rule and the computer program change any positive goes in these cases to 0. Even that is not the best solution as the jump really should get some negative goe. What is the point of having a tech caller if he is going to be overridden in this manner. If the referee thinks his call should be reversed that is another matter.
