Are you trying to say that Asada was specially singled out by the judges, more so than other skaters? As if the judges really had it out for her and her alone? Mao isn't someone I think of when it comes to "flying across the ice" or having "effortless, elegant" jumps. She's one of those skaters that takes a long time to set up their jumps (sometimes doing one of those phantom-spins before jumping) and de-accelerates going into the jump. Her jumps are of medium, average height. Asada's strengths are spins, spirals, footwork, and step-sequences, not jumps. I can already sense an impassioned defense from you (just took a look at your post history), so we can agree to disagree.
