It seemed the judges loved Irina`s skating. I hated her skating but the judges loved it. It seems they wanted to give her alot more titles, even versus people like Michelle Kwan who was a great skater and who the judges also loved. Which of the events would Irina have won with a clean performance with the following content:
1997 Worlds- just not fallen in short and done same long.
1998 Worlds- not fallen in short, not fallen in long, still done the 2 triple-triples, and Kwan had same performance(s)
2000 Worlds- skated cleanly with a 7th triple, even if not a triple-triple
2001 Worlds- skated cleanly with 7 triples, including the triple-triple-double she already did.
2002 Worlds- skated cleanly with 6 triples
2006 Olympics- skated cleanly with 5 triples, same performance minus the one fall
2006 Worlds- showed up and did a clean 5 triple Q round, a clean short, and clean 5 triple only long
