The problem is her PCS for both the SP and the LP went up. Reducing both SP and LP to Euro's which should have been the maximum she could receive, would have resulted in a score 6 points lower. That not even getting into the fact that her TES scores went up several points from Euro's where she was squeaky clean in the SP and only had one mistake in the LP. Yet her scores went up 14 points. How can anyone say this is fair. Carolina upped her technical difficulty in the SP and went from making 5 different mistakes (including 2 falls in the LP) to going completely clean to justify her scores. Meanwhile Adelina had the same(lower) technical difficulty in the SP, and the only area her skating was better was the first jump combination, and to counter that she made a mistake on a double jump later on. None of these things explain why her score jumped 22 points.
