    I think it was at Skate Canada where Sarah Hughes won over Irina and Michelle. Sarah never won the GPF or any other major competition on the senior level other than the Olympics.

    Whoops, that's correct. I knew it was in the 2001-2002 season.

    Truthfully, I believe the writer of the article was simply trying to get attention and be noticed. No more. No less. Honestly, I just saw someone giving a biased opinion because he/she wasn't happy with the outcome or apparently with MK for that matter. So, the writer used MK as a comparison. Go figure.

    Did Maria get low balled due to skating first in the SP in 1998, or was that 2002 where she skated first?

    Butyrskaya skated first in the SP in 1998 and twelfth in 2002.
