    I'm sure you wouldn't be thinking the same thing if the rusians skated their free with two major mistakes.

It was basically one competition (Euros) and now she has become an OGM contender.
    Actually this is happening often enough for promising junior skaters at their first senior year. (sometimes second too) I can remember Asada getting same PCS as Slutskaya in GPF 2005 but one month earlier there was 10 point gap. This doesn't mean they didn't deserve their scores. I did check again Yu-Na's scores from her very first GP. She got 55 but at worlds she got 61. (imagine those PCS with a good performance) Last year Gold got 51 at SC, 58 at COR, 60 at worlds.

    For older skaters:
    Rochette
    Cup of China 58.64
    Skate Canada 62.88 (higher than Kim at SA 2009)
    GPF 56.72
    Olympics 68.48

    You really shouldn't make assumptions about someone you don't know. I was cheering hard for the Russian pairs to finish 1 and 2. Volosozhar/Trankov, Stolbova/Klimov, and Moore-Towers/Moscovitch are the teams I wanted to see medal in that order. I thought Kirsten and Dylan were marked way too low.

    I think Julia will likely end up on the podium
