I'm not an expert on COP so perhaps someone can give me perspective on this one.
I know it's hard to compare between the 6.0 system and COP, but with everything else staying the same, would the top five ladies in the 1998 Olympics (Lipinski, Kwan, Chen, Butyrskaya, Slutskaya) had been the same under results under the COP system?
Just looking at the top 2, Tara Lipinski had more difficulty in her jumps than other other ladies which would've increase her base value, but were they fully rotated and what about her levels in her spins?
How were Michelle Kwan's jumps in terms of being fully rotated? What levels would she have received in her spins?
I imagine Michelle Kwan would've beaten Tara Lipinski in program components.
