    Yu-Na didn't give the judges a choice. It's hard to ignore someone when they're throwing 3-3s time and time again as well as giving you excellent skating to boot.

    I just don't like how lopsided the judging is. I never have and never will. It's unfair but then again it wouldn't be figure skating if the scores weren't questionable or just flat out wrong.

    I see I called it correctly

    Actually looking at the PCS again, the Korean girls got relatively high ones. It's the TES that held them down.

    You're probably right!

    Well Jasmin finished in 13th place. Wang or Miller would even with subpar skates have finished in the top 10.

    Looking at the protocols, it appears that Lipnitskaia doesn't flutz anymore, but she lips.

    The level of the SP was not so high as expected. Only two girls showed a clean triple-triple combination (Pogorilaya and Toth).

    I am happy to see the judges gave her the lead. Her program was nicely choreographed and maturely delivered. No her jumps weren't the hardest but it was a complete program and I'm happy to see her rewarded for it...at the same time it also pisses me off b/c I'm sitting here wondering why the girls from Korea weren't given the same treatment.

    I'm whining, I know. I need to stop...but I really hate it when this happens b/c it's so unfair to the skaters AND it sends the wrong message to future skaters. Why bother working on your lines, refinement, musicality, musical connection or presentation? Why waste the time? Just go out there and jump and spin as fast as you can, never mind if it looks good or not, and you'll score well b/c the judges will boost your PCS to match your technical content even if you don't deserve it.

    Why the hell do I continue to watch this damn sport?

    The most annoying judging trend is giving +2s and +3s by default for full splits and biellmanns regardless of how well they are actually executed.

    She looks physically heavier and a bit slower than she did a year ago - then again she was injured a few months ago with a concussion (and thus unable to compete in the JGP Finals in Sochi). I hope she can regain her sparkle and pizazz.

    It was quite silly to send her here. But then, that's what you get when Nationals > all and when you hold Junior and Senior Nationals at the same time so skaters don't directly compete against one another.

    She is struggling with puberty.

    As others have noted, the Korean ladies suffered mainly due to their TES, not their PCS. The two skaters directly ahead of Kim both have lower PCS than she does, as do the two skaters who precede Park. Rika Hongo from Japan is in 7th and had lower PCS than both Kim and Park. Wuzrobbing is all good and well, but in this case the marks hardly support it. Their PCS is quite close to Anna Pogorilaya, and she's in second place. The difference is in the technical content; you usually can't UR jumps and stay near the top.

    The current European men's champion is Spanish, hardly a major skating power. Here at JW, the 4th placed man after the SP is from the Philippines. Yuna got the marks she deserved. If you want the judges to notice you, give them something impressive, and they will.

That's not the way to develop young skaters as far as i'm concerned. Same thing with Wang. The team should have been Miller, Wang and Hicks.
    And one of Hannah's silvers was at the JGP Finals, where she was beaten only by an outstanding Radionova.

    I think Hannah, or Angela really deserved to go instead of Yasmin. Hannah is really consistent and is capable of getting high PCS.
