Why not just read the tracing on the ice? Who cares how they disguise their foot, just look at the ice. I guess that is too much to ask.
    It was no secret that Sarah underrotated her jumps, it just wasn't explicitly penalized under the old system. She did 7 clean triples and 2 3/3s and still only got scores as high as 5.8 for technical merit, so there was some penalty there. When Irina did her 2 3/3s (a bit sloppily) she got marks as high as 6.0, so that should put Sarah's scores a bit into perspective.

    Based on past protocols, Mao does get dinged for her urs. Mirai's situation is more like Kanako, who also gets dinged a lot for her jumps.

    Mao gets benefit of the doubt, but she does get dinged for URs. Just look at her latest worlds protocols. You'll see several <s on it.

    Mao also has the benefit of being Japan's #1, which Mirai does not have. Mirai could've been America's #1, but she lost it by not successfully defending her Nats title. Mao also has the benefit of having rep for being a good jumper (remember she was considered one of the top jumpers among her contemporaries when she was younger due to her 3As, while Yuna didn't get the rep for that until later). Mirai unfortunately does not have this. I don't think she was ever known for her big solid jumps.
