Shouldn't you be spending your time doing better things than bash Skate Canada?

And also in that letter, you should also complain that Wagner's PCS was higher than Julia's and Gold's instead of lower as you predicted?

Well, yes. When you write junk, it goes to junk mail.

Wagner skated very well except for missing the triple-triple. She deserved slightly higher PCSs than Gracie this time.

Yet again, the judges went overboard with her PCS scores. 33.08 with a fall vs. 33.51 clean in the team SP 31.91 for a clean Euros SP.

Plus Russia fell out of Hockey medal contention today Just kidding. I like these Russian games, I actually ordered a Matryoshka (sp?) Doll- I just don't get this scoring today and because it's the Olympcs, it makes me a little sad.

Ridiculous and absurd thread of extreme trolling.

If no one is going to say fall means nothing more than 5 what can be done? If no one is going to say if a skater is 15 they can't get over 5 in PCS what can be done?

Julia is a teenaged skater whose only crime is being scored generously by the judges, something that is entirely beyond her control.

Vladimir Putin deserves every bit of our contempt. Julia Lipnitskaya, on the other hand, does not.

^ this. Though I have to admit I was happy to see Gracie score what she did. Kostner should be really proud of her sp!

Yeah there wasn't any Russian judges. But still, the scores were inflated for both russian skaters, 65 with a fall/higher goe and pcs than Caro and Yuna-the scores for russians were generous, nobody can deny that.

Just saw it. I liked Adelina, but she should not have been that high. I expected Julia to be held up, since she's unstoppable, but the judging system continues to be very flawed when it comes to deductions. Her very visible error counted for less than Ashley's less obvious error, it seems.
Overall, though, a great competition. What a heartbreaker for Mao, though.

Thanks God she fell. She has absolute no skating skills, almost being stuck in those footwork sections. Not to mention those ugly tiny little jumps which have no chance to pass the test of puberty monster.
