I believe Sarah Meier was battling injuries during that quad, and therefore had trouble placing well. She did skate very well at Worlds in 2004, but that was such a strong field she got buried out of the top 10. I think Sarah was given surprisingly high marks at SLC, especially considering that her marks given during the GP circuit indicated she would finish distantly behind Suguri. IMO she was robbed in Torino, where she improved but was only placed 10th in the SP. I also don't think Fumie will get past this season (really? that's going to get as nut as things can possibly be). How many other ladies' skaters competed at this level after the age of 30? The only one I can think of is Patricia Mansfield, and I believe Marta Andrade (neither well-known to casual followers). But considering how mad she sounds already, who knows..
