But Kwan was horrible technically! Slutskaya deserved Gold because of the SP and LP combines and SH overscored in SP. Kwan was lucky to medal.I actually really loved Irina as a competitor and person and there were many aspects of her skating that were great- her attack, energy, ebullience, spins, height on jumps. But her 2002 Olympic long was not a good performance for her. She lacked dynamism, triple triples, and sparkle. She knew it herself. Look at her face after she finishes!
