    If she wants to earn more points, Ashley needs to work on her spin levels, too.

    Mao got level 4s for all her spins.

    A few other interesting things from the protocol:

    Joannie Rochette got all positive GOE on *every* element. It's not often you see a clean protocol like that.

    Adelina Sotnikova got zero credit for her choreo sequence, but I'm not sure why. She held her spiral for 3 seconds by my count. Perhaps it was a lack of ice coverage.

    ^Ashley just needs to -

    1. Go for LV 4's on her non-jump elements;
    2. Make sure the 3f-3t is rotated;
    3. I would throw in the 3l -seq. - 2x as her 4th jumping pass at the 2:00 mark

    All of the above is doable at this point. She would solidly plant herself as World #4 ranked lady and perhaps ready herself to pounce should Mao or Carolina make a few errors.

    And deservedly so, you can see, even without the lutz, and only repeating the 2 easiest triples you can score well by racking up the GOE. This is why Yuna Kim achieves such high scores from the + on GOE from every single element she does (especially the jumps).
