From the protocols she was not given top marks. I believe she was 11 points behind in the short. For a skater that usually receives 60-70 points in her short, I believe that 50 is quite low. What score do you think she should have received?

She wanted to prove she was back but she probably got herself so excited/wound up like she has done on occasion before.
I just hope she's recovering properly and will be healthy in time for Nationals. Because what Gabrielle Daleman proved this week was that it could be a close battle.
Its not what I think she should have received, as she received 50.99 for a disastrous short. Its what I think she earned and that is the difference. I could throw up numbers that will just seem to upset you even more hohoho, but I won't. I will point out that Roxanne Rheault had a much better looking Flying sit than Osmond and only got a level 1 for hers with very little +GOEs. Also Poor Veronik was robbed of PCS marks as well. At SCI she received 24.4 pts with a fall on her 3F and at Nebelhorn she earned 25.77 pts for an almost clean SP. At the Challenge she was held down to 23.68 pts for a clean SP. How can she earn marks higher internationally for a clean skate but nationally she doesn't? That is all I will say, but hohoho you go on and defend your skater and keep agreeing with pushing the others down if that makes you feel better. To me a true champion takes their losses when the deserve them and takes their wins when they earn them.

Just watched her FS...thank God that got that program straightened out! It's much better now: choreography, dress, delivery...much much better.
Kaetlyn looked good here. I was a little worried about her before but it's good to see she's getting herself back together.
Glad to see Gabrielle have a good SP. I think she's an amazingly powerful skater...almost too powerful sometimes. She needs someone to reel her in and control her a bit but she's wonderful.
Can't wait to see both at nationals!
Skate Canada wins the prize for the most tragic presentation of results.
No formatting on the results website so it stretches from one end to another end of the screen, murdering my eyes.
Everything in pdfs. And in those pdfs, again, no concept of margins or a sensible layout that is remotely readable. Pages crammed with text. Why horizontal instead of vertical page layout?
Only the SP and FS scores displayed and not placements.
PCS shown are factored (so you'd have to multiply them by the factor if you wanted to find out what the average PCS score was).
I mean why not just use the default templates provided by the ISU, given they are much more clear and legible?
