Worse jumpers? Before this competition Sasha landed 3/4 quads and a step out 3A. One competition doesn't make her a worse jumper, and she has always had splatfests (even last season).I was talking about the skater's decision.
Kostornaia hasn't got her 3A back, and she didn't before she switched coaches.
Anyways, my thoughts on Rostelecom are that Tuktamysheva deserved to win. It would have been a nicer moment if the commentator (Chris) stopped blabbing on about Trusova during Kostornaia and Tuktamyshevas skates.
Kostornaia made a lot of mistakes on jumps (scratchy landings) which she got + GOE for. She also for +GOE (albeit lower level) when she made the major issue on the step sequence twizzle. I would have upped her PCS compared to Liza, but given significantly lower GOE.
