    Ladies' PCS in SOCHI

    Followings are PCS at GPF in TOKYO...Most recent results before Sochi

    Short Program
    1. Asada 34.91
    2. Sotnikova 30.85
    3. Julia 29.78

    Long Program
    1. Asada 68.79
    2. Julia 60.52
    3. Sotnikova 60.47


    Is it really possible to achieve such a DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENT in PCS?

    Sotnikova got 35.55 for SP and 74.41 for LP in Sochi.

    Compared to GPF ... Sotnikova did 18.64 better in total PCS.

    Is it really possible?

    TES can fluctuate 20 points depending on how well a skater jumped.

    But PCS is for Skating Skill, Choreography, Interpretation of music and How beautiful the skate is...

    You can argue PCS can fluctuate depending on events...
    But why only Russian skaters PCS sky-rocketed in Russia?

    Sotnikova beat Gracie Gold almost 10 points in TOTAL PCS.
    10 points represent 2 flip jumps.

    Was Sotnikova's program that much more beautiful than Gracie Gold's?

    Sotnikova's PCS should be around at Gracie Gold's at best.

    Personally, I will give about 5 points more to Gracie than Sotnikova.

    PCS used in Sochi for Russian skaters was a different index - Putin Complimentary Score.

    PCS in GPF was ********. Julia should have been higher. Adelina's skate was not clean. HOW can you compare those competitions?? Is beyond me. Gracie was scored quite well - if not her mistake, she might have been 3d. Who knows.

    PCS should be exclusive...clean jumping has relatively nothing to do with choreography, interpretation and
    how beautiful the overall skate is.

    Clean skate means a lot these days. And pcs go high if absolutely clean.

    Pls provide me recent international competitions where Julia and Sotnikova had good PCS...if you want to justify Sochi results.
    Even come within 10 points close to Sochi. Including Cup of Russia.

    Europeans for once. And also I hope it's not a revelation for you that if you go clean, and your program is difficult, pcs go higher. Especially if you are consistent and improve all season. I don't get this Julia hate..

    A bigger question: was Gracie Gold's individual freeskate with a fall worthy of over 6.5 points higher PCS than Gold's clean team freeskate?

    Same with Julia's PCS for her individual FS with a fall and UR-turnout, versus her clean team FS, and the former getting higher PCS.
