Everyone feels Irina or Michelle skating cleanly would have beaten Hughes for the 2002 OGM, even without a triple-triple. Cohen had she landed her triple lutz-triple toe probably would too. What about Maria. Had she skated cleanly could she have beaten Hughes for the gold. She lost the short program to Hughes on only a 5-4 split so I think it was possible. I dont know what jumps she had planned though.
