tbh, it was fully deserved
Her FP was superb in IN and PR department. It's one of the rare cases when I am agree with PCS score despite not liking the program itself.
I wonder what will be if she will get a real good program.
But only 6 go to the final, and Viktoria could skate better than the worst performer out of those anyway...? Doesn't make any sense to me.
You don't need 7 repeating, only 6.
Worst performer of those who'd be in line to get second GP events when she competes.And what difference would it make if she could in theory skate better than the worst of the previous seven because she wouldn't get a 2nd JGP event anyway because she would then be the 7th best.
Btw, I'm not exactly buying that Tarusina's better than Vasilieva.
I have to agree on that too, from a TES point of view. Still, overall i don't think she stand out on the russian field, so i was expecting this kind of score, on her JGP debut. We still need to see the free, but with all those +2/+1 around, on jumps that, comparably, deserve more, she can't do much about it. GOE+5 has make the system even more unfair.Vasilieva underscored and Kostornaia overscored, nothing new
