looking at the protocols i am guessing Shin Amano also judged the women
She won! Marilena won! Wow is this Cyprus's first gold medal?!
So you think they have the Cypriot national anthem on hand?
Disagree. I saw Marilena at a little club comp this summer, and at Cranberry. She rocked both of those too. I thought/hoped she’d also do well here.
Does she even have any GP assignments?
No. She would have been able to do JGP, and she probably should have.
Maripena gets ice cream. Everyone else gets carrot soup for dinner
Oh, I mean I finally watched her, and therefore I know she was nice lol. But thanks!
2 thumbs up to the English language commentor.
Added to the broadcast but didn‘t talk over the performances. And didn't just say crap just to fill time.
I am usually a no commentary at all person but in this case, I can make a rare exception.
Well, probably you could get now what Shcherbakova's fans felt when Amano stole her victory with undeserved UR calls in Euro 2020.Hmmm...this competition certainly push the limit for what is considered sour grapes and stingy.
Or maybe she was at last judged adequately first time in her senior career? She always got away with her very dodgy 3As after all. That, and you can't say it's only Amano's fault. She got pretty low PCS scores from majority of judges, didn't she? Everyone got them low. And indeed - I can't say I've seen any performance there I would want to rewatch. There weren't any performances - just jump/spins practice drills with some music in background. Even the most reputed skaters there - Young You, Karen Chen etc. - had horrendously empty, bland programs. If anything - it was Marilena who was robbed in PCS. She was the only skater who tried to show some decent choreo between jumps and not only in step sequence. Huge difference in scores Karen and You got at WC and 4CC respectively - and here - just shows how overscored they were before and what they really worth if we look at their elements with the same standarts juniors are judged, for example. Or, you can say, it shows how judging is uneven as a whole.Young You was criminally underscored compared to other competitions.
