I do not agree. I do not think that Kim was gifted with extra undeserved points because of her "career and reputation." I think she earned her scores by the quality of her performance.Originally Posted by venlac
Mao, unfortunately, did not skate as well. If Mao had skated better she would have received higher scores.

difference in PCS between Asada and kim is of course, since kim is faster and better skating skill. but also plus, kim has been better career and reputation. I think the difference in PCS has more widened between two skaters since that reason. by the way, Isn't it apply to all skaters? normally PCS is affected largely from reputation and career.
Since this thread is hypothetical. A perfect Mao will be unstopbable. If Mao could complete an 8 triple program perfectly she would win gold. But unfortunatley no one is perfect. And how can they be, those amazing competitors are literally walking and jumping on water.
