    Closest finishes of all time at World Championships and Grand Prix events - COP system

    .
    Closest finishes of all time at the World Figure Skating Championships (under the COP judging system)



    ~~ 2014 World Figure Skating Championships (Saitama, Japan) - DANCE ~~
    175.43 - Anna CAPPELLINI / Luca LANOTTE (ITA)
    175.41 - Kaitlyn WEAVER / Andrew POJE (CAN)
    175.37 - Nathalie PECHALAT / Fabian BOURZAT (FRA)
    Δ¹˙² = 0.02
    Δ²˙³ = 0.04


    ~~ 2012 World Figure Skating Championships (Nice, France) - PAIRS ~~
    201.49 - Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy (GER)
    201.38 - Tatiana Volosozhar / Maxim Trankov (RUS)
    Δ = 0.11


    ~~ 2014 World Figure Skating Championships (Saitama, Japan) - MEN ~~
    282.59 - Yuzuru HANYU (JPN)
    282.26 - Tatsuki MACHIDA (JPN)
    Δ = 0.33


    From memory, I believe the above are the closest finishes ever at the World Figure Skating Championships (under the COP judging system). Am I missing any?

    Have there ever been any closer finishes at any of the Grand Prix or other Championship events? Specifically at:
    Four Continents
    European Championships
    Grand Prix Final
    Skate America
    Skate Canada
    Cup of China
    NHK Trophy
    Trophée Eric Bompard
    Rostelecom Cup

    i guess this is what happens when the olympic medalists decide to take a vacation instead, i can't believe this is happening across all the disciplines at the SAME world championships

    If I remember correctly, Hanyu won against Javi with a tiny tiny gap in Rostelecom cup a couple of years ago.

    2011 Rostelcom Cup. Yuzuru Hanyu won over Javier Fernandez by .03 and thus qualified for the 2011-2012 GPF, 241.66 to 241.63. (http://www.isuresults.com/results/gp...1_protocol.pdf)

    Yes, that win changed the trajectory of the season and possibly his career.

    Another anomaly in the dance competition was that the LP winner didn't get a medal. I don't think that has happened in a major competition since Euros 2009 (Yannick Ponsero).

    And never in dance, AFAIR.

    When it's this close, it tells you the judges haven't a clue. Really, they should round to +/- 1, since GOE can only be given in those increments. If they rounded, then there would be 3 gold medals, which would be a trip. Would all of them stand on the top step of the podium for the whole medal ceremony? Would all 3 anthems be played?

    I'm smiling just picturing it.

    In the GP, for Ladies maybe we should consider this season's Rostelecom Cup, where Carolina lost to Julia because of 0.68

    In twosies, it's been that close. At 2009 Worlds D&W missed the bronze by 0.09 to V&M.

    And there was the Weir / Lysacek tie at US Nationals that Lysacek won by tie breakers.

    Yes. That tiny margin made the difference in getting him to the GPF, and he had momentum from then onward ...

    Question: in the event of an exact tie, is there a tie-breaker? What happens?
