Some kind person posted 5 videos of this competition on youtube.
I guess the talking point was that Cohen needed to place top 3 to qualify for senior worlds (as per the age rules at that time).
Having watched all the videos, I'm just utterly perplexed by the results. I'm sure someone wuz robbed, but I don't know who. I think maybe Dorofejev should have won the free. But there are valid reasons for them all.
-Kirk had 7 triples but all tiny, wrong edges and a couple of UR's (2nd after the sp)
-Meier had huge jumps but maybe not the flow out of a couple of them that she may have wanted...still, there's a case to be made for her to win (3rd after the sp)
-Stellato had good everything nothing great ...I'd definitely have had her 5th on the free (1st after sp)
-Tamara had speed, all the jumps, two AMAZING loops the best landings of all... (5th after the sp)
-Cohen did a lot of her jumps and had those fricken MITF and basics which should have been reflected in the technical scores ...there's a case to be made for her to win the free too... (7th after the sp)
ANyone know who was 4th and 6th after the short?
Very interesting competition, cheers to the uploader.
