To answer your question, yes, the current changes are also good for the sport for reasons I have already mentioned, and should be made regardless of who was skating. There is not one rule change implemented that I have not seen previously brought up and discussed by skating fans on skating forums such as this one.

Anyone who knows what this is in reference to has really been reading this thread closely.

You are too sly for your own good.

Oh, how adorable. Are the people questioning whether it's a propaganda video able to:

See for yourselves, if that's really just 7 crossovers. And spare the underhanded sniping at posters (i.e. jaylee in this case) if you don't know better.
Sorry for the negativity, and I apologize that I don't have giulia's humorous touch, but it sure is curious when the very same posters bemoaning the hostility around these forums from time to time add to it themselves. There's a word for that: it starts with an H, ends with a Y, and is 9-letters long. I'm just glad that these particular crazy video-makers are keeping to themselves on the Japanese sites....for now.

I am in this category. To me, it looks like she does more than 7 in the first ten seconds. (?)

At the rink. Again.
I counted 10 before the second jumping pass and quite a few instances of two footed "basic pump" skating...

What math and mskater said re: crossovers.

Yu Na can go 75 and 150 probably if she is clean. I dont think anyone else can do that even clean so she wins easily.
Asada would go 75 in the short but probably only 140 in the long if clean. Kostner doing only a triple toe-triple in the short would be more like 70 and 140. So I would say Asada 2nd if clean only because of her much greater difficulty, even though Kostner would get more GOE and PCS. Clean isnt realistic for Mao anyway with her current jumps though. Both make about 2 or 3 mistakes and Kostner probably comes out ahead for silver.

Mao got 135 without a 3F-3L, a bad landed 3A, an Ur 3F, an UR 2Loop and an "e" on her lutz. I doubt she would get only 140 if clean. The title of this topic is not what skater has the highest chances to skate clean. Realistically or unrealistically Mao would win if all 3 go completely clean. It's basic math. Her TES advantage would be more than enough to keep her first no matter how huge Caro's or Yuna's GOE would be. And PCS too. She's about 1-2 points lower in the SP at worst and around 3-4 in the LP
