Just got the news. What a joke event this is.
I was watching it......and I´m extremely pissed right now these scores were a joke. Katharina Witt, who was doing the german comments couldn´t hide her anger too. So this isn´t only the audience, who didn´t understand the judges.....
OMG I am still in shock! I'm not even a Yuna uber but I thought she was flawless. BOOOOOOOOOOOO
I must a minority here because I thought Adelina earned it big time.
I am going to watch the programs for myself tonight. I was in class and just got out. I sincerely hope Adelina earned it, otherwise this is a huge fraud. Not just here, but across all disciplines. Even though the rightful person has won in every other discipline, the scores were still unbelievable and incredibly inflated (and this is coming from a D/W fan). This is unreal. I really hope that, when I watch it, it turns out Adelina was worthy of winning and Yuna made mistakes. GS seems to be down so I have no more info atm
I don't know what the Yunabots are babbling on about - I enjoyed Adelina a whole lot more than Kim. Kim was done in by her complacency - I kept thinking throughout her skate...She still doesn't have the loop?!...What happened to the 2A-3T?...An iffy landing on the second lutz! She hardly competed since the last Olympics, thought she could saunter in to this one without any improvement since 2010, and still win. It turned out she was wrong, very wrong.
And one thing I need to do from now on is to can it as far as predictions go.
Well, looked like Yuna had a great chance against Julia. Not so much against Adelina today.
That's always a danger for defending champions. No doubt she thought she just needed to be clean. She really needed to have 7 triples in her program.She hardly competed since the last Olympics, thought she could saunter in to this one without any improvement since 2010, and still win. It turned out she was wrong, very wrong.
I know what you mean.And one thing I need to do from now on is to can it as far as predictions go.
Yuna was tenative throughout. Adelina didn't hold back tonight.
Sotnikova delivered when it mattered. Good girl. I'm very proud of Gracie and Carolina as well.
Yuna is a great skater and will always be remembered as such but in THIS competition there was someone with a lot more fire.
Adelina's jumps were all huge! with a great landing flow coming out of all of her jumps.
I agree that Sotnikova performed with a ton of fire but her PCS scores were still a joke.
Said it earlier and I'll say it again, the judges using PCS as placeholders with absolutely no understanding of what the scores should be for each individual component. This also confirms that Plushy would've been PCS'd to another gold medal had he competed. What a shame..
