    Yuna did what she could. Let's not forget that Adelina was also over scored in the SP, too. Horrible judging.

    Sorry I am laughing hysterically at that TR score for Yuna. I bet she hasn't seen that since she was 10 years old or something!

    I was really hoping that the Queen would make history and become a 2-time Olympic Ladies Champion, but she has nothing to be ashamed of, she gave it her best shot, and is now a 2-time Olympic Medalist (gold & silver), besides being a 2-time Sr. World Champion, Jr. World Champion, 4CC Champion, 3-time GPF Champion, 6-time Korean National Champion, and the list goes on & on ad infinitum. She's honestly in a class by herself. One of the GIANTS in the sport. An Immortal, right along with Sonja Henie and Katarina Witt.

    Here's hoping she saves herself and comes back for the Olympics in her home country in 2018. She's still young enough to win an unprecedented 3rd Olympic Medal, which hasn't been done since Sonja Henie did it in 1936 (the same way Evgeni Plushenko did it in 2010 and now 2014).

    This result completely ruined my day and I can't even say I'm a huge Yuna fan. Ugh. It makes me so mad. Sotnikova was a raindrop away from beating Kim's world record. It's just inexplicable. Even with the long-gone SpSq points it would still have been stretching the very fabric of reality.

    I'd love to see her back again too, but she seems dead set on retirement. Whatever makes her happy.

    I believe it was also payback for the Americans winning ice dance in Russia (the biggest slap in the face for Russians.)

    This, and even more so after Lipnitskaia failed to deliver.

    Yeah, I agree. Once Lipnitskaia had her troubles, they had to do something and Adelina got huge marks... and yeah, the hockey team losing could have played a part. I don't care what people say, judging is influenced by things beyond the actual skating and this result proves it.

    I think both Yuna and Carolina were robbed. I can't say I think Yuna should have beaten Carolina, either/or would have been fine because both skated lovely programs and had good jumps, but Adelina winning is just beyond my comprehension.

    She might always be the only lady to give 4 clean performances at an Olympic Games, and I think if she didn't deserve the gold here then the one who did was Carolina Kostner. I felt that both Kim and Kostner should've gotten a lot more 10's than what were given in relation to Sotnikova's PCS marks. Also +5's when you compare the same triple lutz/triple toe combination they opened with. Every single judge IMO should've given Yuna a 10 for performance/execution, skating skills, and interpretation when you compare to every mark every judge gave Adelina. It's not worth getting mad over because of how obvious it is, Yuna gave the performances needed to solidfy herself as probably the all-time best and that's what she needed more than another OGM.

    She left everything on the ice and has absolutely no what-if's. She can still be a champion and be proud knowing that she didn't make the decision and now she will forever have the complete and total respect of the entire sport of figure skating. She was a fierce queen at this competition and I don't think I will ever be more impressed with a ladies competitor than I am Yuna Kim.

    I think it is sad that Mao had her disaster short because IMHO, her long program was the program of the night and if she had skated later, her marks would have been even higher... Yuna and Carolina should both be proud to have skated such wonderful programs under such pressure. They lost to home town crowd pressuring the results.

    I am disappointed with the result too, but what irks (but doesn't surprise) me is that at the flower ceremony there should have been a huge ovation for Yuna, or some show of more respect for all she has done for our sport. Why did the crowd have to hold back? Adelina had already won.

    The crowd has been awful throughout the entire Olympics. Neither D/W nor V/M received standing ovations despite all of their programs being far, far better than any of the other competitors.

    I love how expecting accountability for scoring now makes you a sore loser. Of course Adelina has stronger skating skills than Yuna, it's there on the protocol duh. Willful naivete among figure skating fans - the sport known as much for countless suspensions due to collusion scandals as it is for tiny girls in sequinned dresses - is too precious at this point.

    agree totally about Mao. Don't think the crowd pressured the results, I'm sure they were predetermined.

    The trophy may go to a local favorite teenager of the host country, which has billions of dollars at stake, but Yuna, Mao and Carolina all showed that they are true champions.
