The worst calls of the entire Olympics, and maybe ever. I definitely would have protested those calls. Those flips couldn't have been cleaner!

In the video replay from Olympics the 2 triple flips that received the downgraded were on the borderline 7 cheat (quarter cheat), so they should have been ratified at clean. However even if they were in doubt and had to replay them in slow motion the Technical Panel is always meant to go in favour of the Skater when in doubt and in this case I think don't think they did. If they had of been called fully rotated her technical score would have been higher than both Mirai and Joannie, thus placing her in 4th overall.
I do not believe that she should have been given higher components than Mirai and Joannie. I think she was placed fairly in the short but was judged unfairly in the Free skate!

I have to say, Rachael's flips looked rotated to me. Even so, the best she would/could have scored in that performance would have been under 125 points with the flips rotated. She has a claim to be in 5th, but certainly no higher.
Her skating was sooo slow! No way that was podium material.

If the flips were marked clean, her higher technical score would have placed her above Mirai.

I think if Flatt was given credit for those flips, we also would have seen a bigger number from Mirai.
I'm still not convinced Mirai should have been off the podium. But Rachael should have been 5th for sure.

Lepisto 5 triples >>>>>> Flatt 7 triples
(even considering the SP point defecit)
And I think the same is true of Ando, albeit with a few less >>>>>s. ;)

Not only her components, but Rachael's Lutz attempt in the SP was not clean or well done. A tougher panel could have had grounds for marking it as UR
She lost a point on grade of execution for the short program lutz. During the slow-mo replay of the jump on the British Eurosport broadcast, Chris Howarth seemed pretty confident that the jump would be downgraded and went on to speculate that it might even get -3s from the judges.
