Joannie actually had a good shot at silver. Had she not had one of her two big mistakes in the LP she would have beaten Mao who also had two big mistakes but 3 triple axels to give her the edge. Remember she lost silver by something like less than 3 points. Given the circumstances though it is hard to fault her for that though.
