    Yes, but last year she was not bailing out of them as she was this season at GP events. It may be that she has grown since then and it felt different... or she started doing something differently. A tiny mistake crept in and the consequences were huge.

I agree Sakhanovich has a more interesting jump layout in the short and in the free I don't find her jumping passes to be as cluster bombed as Miki's, despite the fact it's 30 seconds shorter. If we're going to talk about backs, Sakhanovich does have quite jarring posture on the landing of her jumps.

    Sakhanovich deserves higher marks for SS and close to equal marks for IN. But everything else I believe Sotskova is better at right now in terms of PCS.

    This is coming from someone who prefers Sakhanovich as a skater. Also, what about Proklova?
    Thanks for an interesting discussion. I might have focused too much on the negative aspects of Sotskova's skating and failed to notice anything else. I'll try to watch her again with an open mind.

    It's possible the issue is mental and that she got into this kind of vicious circle where she's really worried of making a mistake again on the axel, so she's very tense and cautious approaching it and then of course mistakes happen.
