    IIRC, the tech controller (or the specialist?) here is the same one from Jr. Worlds and is a known stickler. So she was not going to cut a break for anyone even Queen Yuna.

    Ladies PCS are usually lower, I think the World Record is around 34-35 and Yuna got 33, so PCS wise, she was scored pretty well

    Great jumps but otherwise it looked like she was ticking off each element and didn't have the old spark.
    Spins not so great either.
    Exactly. Yuna was just going through the motions. Phoning it in should not garner a 70+ score.

    I agree...very poorly packaged for such a muscular and powerful skater. My body style was like that when I skated and we put in a lot of time trying to find just the right shade of tights, fabric, cut, color, hair etc. to put a nice package together. The tights over the heels of the boots didn't help.

    With that said, I enjoyed how solid her jumps were.

    Ah, if so, I doubt anyone would crack 70 today. Even 65+ would be a high score.

    Probably, but Orser would have never let her gone out there with that awful SP music.

    Excellent choice of works...phoning it in.

    Yes, Carolina Kostners PCS from Worlds last year was only 30, so 33 is pretty decent.

    Solid skate from Frank, she should be proud of that. But please in the future, no illusion fabric or suntan tights.

    Well, I guess it's up to Wagner, Kostner, and Asada now. But the judges may have left a margin for error in case the others skate better.

    I agree with this. I love Yuna but I've seen her do better. She should not have run away with the lead with that skate though I would not have complained if she had cracked 70. And if she is being held back a bit I think it has far less to do with Osmond and more to do with it being the year of Mao vs Carolina. I think this score should hold up for top 3 for sure.

    same Tech Person ???

    Carolina will get a higher PCS for sure
    looking like the Mao-Carolina-Yuna-Osmond battle I predicted

    .62 less than she got at the Olympics and this was not at that level. She was let down by the TES today.

    Wait, i'm confused - because Canadians would still be friendly to Yuna, or because Orser would have coached her better than her current Korean coaches?
