Hah, just saw the scoring for this event. It's kinda annoying that the scores here will become personal bests.

I mean, Green/Parsons fell in their RD and scored above 75. :laugh:

And love Dai/Kana but 190 puts them on par with the Brits.

Mordavian Ornament - let's see how generous we can be with the scoring...
Warsaw Cup - hold my beer. :laugh:
I was trying to remember this iconic event's name! Thank you!

For comparison, this is just a point-ish from Stepanova/Bukin in IDF earlier today. This was a good skate, yes, but I just don't think they're on that caliber yet... right? Right??
The judges were more lenient here. Muramoto/Takahashi also scored 5 points more than last week when they skated at home ice. Green/Parson had two visible stumbles/loss of balance, one at the exit of the lift, who still got high GOE etc etc I think, for all top 3 teams scores would be almost 5 point lower in a GP competition with the same skate.

I mean even S/N got 24 points more here than at SCI - I think these judges need to be reprimanded. I know all challengers tend to be scored higher but this is beyond shocking.
They tend to be more lenient at Challengers not because of the better teams, but because of the lower ranked teams who need to get minimum TES to compete to Europeans/4CC/Worlds. And when they over score those teams, they need to over score the others too. That is the logic behind it i guess.

I understand that - but the fact is that this scoring is clearly wrong and political - its so blatant. Gr/P scored a little over what they did at SCI but not an egregious amount.

Gr/P particularly had worse outgoing here, with the fall in RD and visible stumbles in FD and their scores would be lower with the same performances at SCI. Or vice versa, they would get much higher scores here if they skated the same way they skated at SCI.

I used to think scoring in Russia had a cap but MO blew everyone’s expectations away. It’s the Oprah of personal bests. And the fact that it’s called Mordavian Ornament makes it sound like a fluffy drag pageant - which let’s be honest it kind of is - than a legit figure skating competition.
