One does not simply skate into Pyeongchang
After the judging of the SP of the top flight, it was obvious that even clean Mao wouldn't have had the slightest chance. I mean, even if she had been with the elusive 74 points club, she would not have beaten them with her clean free, either. Maybe edged in for a bronze, but even that seems uncertain with Carolina, who they couldn't ignore. (And shouldn't as she was great, too)

Tripping on the Podium
This would just prove that they were set on giving the gold to whoever the judges wanted, and not to the one who truly deserved it, regardless of how anyone skated or achieved!

Yes, looking at the scores across the competition both team and singles, the judges really wanted to see Kostner on that podium. And I can't complain about that.

I don't begruge Carolina's medal. In fact, if it were up to me, I would have given her the gold. She's the only one who gave two inspiring performances. Most ppl on this forum might not agree, but I think Kim deserved her placement.

Carolina was fantastic, the best skates I've ever seen her do, and she should've been on the podium, for whichever colour medal. And yeah, it would've been nice to see her duke it out with Yuna for gold when the judging can be trusted, but it's too late now, isn't it?

Does anyone know if Mao is going to retire for good after Worlds? I think I've read somewhere that she might stay. Sorry if I'm wrong...
