From what I saw, in my mind, Rochette had fewer mistakes than Asada. IMO Joannie's choreography and transitions were much more challenging than Mao's in both the SP and the LP. In the LP, Jo did 5 different types of triples (2 Lutzes, 2 Salchows, 1 flip, 1 loop, and 1 toe loop) and rotated 7 of them. 6 were landed cleanly. 1 was rotated with a step-out (the flip). 2Axel had a turn-out. Mao did 3 different types of triples (2 Axels, 1 flip, 1 loop; Lutz and Salchow were not attempted) and rotated 4 of them. 1 (the 2nd flip) was under-rotated/downgraded to a double, two-footed, and turned out of in combination. 1 (the toe loop) was singled. So, Rochette made 2 mistakes in the LP. Mao made 4 mistakes in the LP, 5 when you count that she tripped when first attempting the toe loop. That's why I still believe Joannie deserved the silver medal.And Mao had three 3A and emotions. So, Joannie was not the only skater who combined emotions with landing jumps.
