Would you have DOWNGRADED Mao's Triple Axel in her Free Skating in the Worlds? It may have been a little short but not more than 1/2 rotation.
It seems that the caller Shin Amano has such a unique standard for his judgings. All of ladies' Level 4 on Step Sequences except the one of Akiko Suzuki's short in 2010 4CC, are given by him, on the other hand, he downgraded 2 of Mao's 3 Triple Axels in 2010 Worlds when many of the medias and commentators did not agree with that. It shouldn't be up to the callers THIS MUCH how the results turn out.
What do you think?
