Yes: Kostner made three mistakes out of ten jumps (SP+FS), all the other jumps were landed perfectly! Yu-Na made no mistake and had a more difficult layout so she won; Mao, for example, made mistakes in five of her ten jumps (two footed 3A, UR 3F, popped Lo, step-out and two-footed 3A, UR and turn-out triple flip; if you consider her "e" you can say six mistakes), so, even if her layout was more difficult, the mistakes put her behind... Carolina didn't skate bad at all!
