I love these score sheets! Carolina increased her TES score by more than 10 points between Euros and World's just by doing a better job of executing what she's capable of. (44.75 and Euros with lots of mistakes, 55.5 in QR and 54.94 in LP with lesser mistakes). I'm assuming something similar is true in the SP just by looking at the placements, but I didn't actually look at the score sheets.Originally Posted by Mathman
So I think keeping an eye on what skaters are doing out there v. what we know they CAN do will help us develop our list of "real" dark horses - those most likely to pull a Sarah.
I like the fact that the TES scores are really in the hands of the skaters in terms of base value. Under 6.0, would Carolina have recieved roughly a 24% better Technical score for her performance at World's based on the previous season? I sort of doubt it. I'm glad to see Carolina got credit where credit was due in the scores.
On another note....
I recall a comment right after the Ladies event was over at World's about how Carolina's PCS score went up dramatically between the QR and LP (as in, "How can that be???")
Actually, there was a noticeable uptick in all the top 4 ladies:
Irina: 59.24 QR, 66.07 LP
SC: 56.64 QR, 62.12 LP
CK: 51.28 QR, 58.35 LP
MK: 55.2 QR, 59.36 LP
Any opinions on this piece? What comes to mind for me is that I think in general, the skaters approach the QR with more of a cautious approach - get through it without major mistakes, and maybe skate more "full out" in the LP. If that's the case, I think it would impact PCS between these two segments (but probably not in all categories, as it seems to happen). Other ideas?
