    But though Yuna has jumped one less triple jump, she did one more double jump. which means the total number of jumps is just the SAME.


    Yuna jumped 6 triple +5 double while sotinokova jumped 7triple + 4 double.

    The score gap between triple and double is just 2 points.

    This fact shows if that was the main reason to have the score gap it should be more or less around 2points instead of 5 points.

    and aside from that, we all know she has one double jump mistake in free program.

    this means there must not be any score gap between Yuna and sotinokova.

    Therefore Sotinokova score gap argument connecting to number of triple jump is nonsense

    Total 63.26 

    the difference is only 1.42 point.
    Their PCS is almost same in both SP and FP.
    YuNa's step sequence got level 3 in SP and FP and Adelina got level 4 and 1.7 GOE.
    This is fixed from the beginnig.YuNa was robbed of gold medal.

    why do you keep posting the same posts over and over again and let alone on Adelina's thread.
    you are disgusting, go back to Yunabot thread and post there as many spams as you want

    and what a total hypocrite you even said you were attacking the judging system and not Adelina
    yet here you are again trolling into her threads

    An article about Adelina: http://en.ria.ru/sochi2014/20140222/...Than-Kims.html


    Sotnikova: My Free Skate Was Better Than Kim's


    SOCHI, February 21 (R-Sport) – Russia's Adelina Sotnikova said Friday that she was a worthy gold medalist in the Olympic women's figure skating after her win over Kim Yuna sparked a judging controversy.

    Sotnikova, 17, a four-time Russian national champion, trailed Kim, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic gold medalist, after the short program in Sochi. She finished first after being awarded 149.95 points in the free skate despite stumbling after one jump.

    Kim, from South Korea, finished five points behind after a skate without obvious mistakes. Her defeat prompted angry criticism of the international judging panel online from her fans, particularly in Korea.

    Many commentators have noted, however, that Sotnikova's program involved more complex moves that earned her higher technical marks from the judges.

    "I skated very well and my technical score is higher than Yuna's,” Sotnikova said. “My jumps were more complicated, especially in the second part of the cascade, rotations for the fourth level. That means I was better in technique. I skated very well.”

    Sotnikova became the first Russian to win the women's competition and brought Russia its third figure skating gold of the Sochi Olympics, following the host nation's triumph in the inaugural team event and a pairs win for Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov.

    Ms. Sotnikova cannot possibly be an objective judge of her own worth. None of us are.

    I congratulate her on a personal best skate and felt she did enough to stand on the podium -- but I'm sorry: she did not deserve gold.

    She also did not deserve silver.

    Since the judges apparently didn't want to give Mao Asada the bronze for whatever reason (yes, I know all about the Code of Points and about Asada's disastrous short program gaining too few), I'd have been OK with Sotnikova winning bronze.

    But anything else -- well, it wasn't a win.

    It was a gift.

    Excellent point. And on that note...

    Yes she did deserve the gold. But unlike you I will not apologize for my opinion... that's not necessary.

    Of course she didn't. She earned the gold.

    This is not about what the judges don't want. It's about what you don't want.

    It was a win. A win you don't agree with obviously, but a win nonetheless.

    No it wasn't. It was a great and well earned accomplishment. She has every reason to feel proud.

    just curious - is everyone here pretty much in agreement that she deserved a 149.95 for the free skate?

    She performed better than Kim. That's all that matters.

    Absolutely she deserved 149. A skate with three double axels got 150 and Adelina pcs was so deserved because she had it all in SS and PE and TR and CH and IN.

    The only thing thing I'm getting from the thread is that Yuna's ubers are the absolute scum of the figure skating world.

    I finally realized there are too many Yuna fans after Sochi. Haha! You are thinking everone having
    issues about Sochi Olympics is Yuna fans. That's good!!! I didn't know that a lot of specialists and figure skaters were Yunaubers. As a big fan of Yuna I'm very happy for it. Actually I was just thinking otherpeople are just presenting their anger for the justice.
