In my opinion, Mao has been underscored more than Kim: 2010 Worlds, 2014 Sochi and Worlds (though of course Kim didn't compete in it), and 2007 and 2009 Worlds, especially in the LPs, for example. Many posters at youtube and golden skate have commented on this.

Mao Asada is very difficult to judge. because she can be spectacular and fantastic. But her jumps are always questionnable, and her basic skating and jumping technique are not the best.

It was criminal 4 years ago in Vancouver where Mao performed 3 Triple Axels, 1 in SP and 2 in FS and still wasn't even close to beating Kim! That's probably why she was so stubborn falling out of every attempt this past season!

Hmm difficult to choose because, as you said, neither are technically strong skaters. I've never liked any programs that N&K did together but I quite like N&G's free dances in both 1993 and 1994. I guess for me, N&G were a better packaged team with more interesting programs. I wonder if the tango FD they did in 1993 was the program that Navka & Platov were meant to do before he left to get back together with Grishuk.
