Figure Skating World Championships

cheating

Watch the Ice Dancing live on Eurosport now. This might work throughout Worlds. Take that USFSA.ORG for making people pay haha:)

She fell, she underrotated and she two footed a jump yet she is only 3 points behind the only watchable skaters of the last 6 years?

I am glad the Olympics are in Russia next year and not Canada. I know all home Countries get home scores but whenever the competition is in Canada it seems even more blatant.

 

Patrick Chan had a great SP but the idea that he is the best skater of all time is laughable.

Ashley only did a triple double in the short. Gracie stayed up but was messy and was downgraded.

The US needs to add up to 13 to get 3 spots for next years Olympics.

That would be hard. Gracie needs to move up two spots and Ashley needs to stay in the same position but with Worlds being in Canada she will be lucky to stay in the same place. Mao most likely will pass her, the overscoring of Kostner is a life long tradition and the Japanese skaters have a way of surprising on any given night.

One of the judges gave Kaetlyn Osmand a score of 9 on her interpretation score. Okay and Kostner who made many mistakes is only 3 points behind Yuna.

I love Yuna’s dress except the neck lining. I wish that part wasn’t there. It ruins the dress for me. Mao’s dress is too bright.

    Does anyone know if Mirai Nagasu is going to the Olympics again?

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      That will be decided next year David but the answer right now is, hell no. She cheats her jumps and was the only one really downgraded for it at Nationals.

      I think USFSA is done with her.

    • david0688 Says:

      Wow, she cheats her jumps huh? I think 2010 was the first time no American got on the podium. We definitely need someone on the podium.

      If USFSA is done with her then what will she do?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        She might continue but they have been very tough on her the last few years and she deserved the downgrades at Nationals IMO. The problem was almost everyone else also didn’t complete the full rotation but Mirai was one of the few downgraded.

        It seemed like a message was being sent.

  2. sanitynmotion Says:

    I just have to say it. If these ladies are the best the US can come up with now then so be it. We are definitely no longer a dominant source of world championship figure skaters the way we used to be. Guess they get what they deserve.

    I haven’t watched this at all and probably won’t unless you say there is a routine that was wonderful to watch. Figure skating bores me any more with the non-stop “skate/jump/skate/jump” sort of routines.

    I remember liking Yuna Kim and Mao Asada though from the Olympics four years ago. Funny enough, I’m now an every-4-year figure skating fan when it used to be the exact opposite.

    • icemeltsfast Says:

      Can you identify the differences between the jumps? Even though I used to watch figure skating more frequently, I have to admit that I never bothered understanding the code and had trouble distinguishing the jumps/lutz/loops, lol. So for me, every routine does look like skate, jump, skate.. the only difference between a good and bad routine is choreo/expression. =)

      And can somebody explain how the code changed in figure skating?? Did it lose artistry in favor of difficult in the way gymnastics did?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I can tell most of the jumps. The axel and loop are easy and I sometimes mix up the lutz and flip because they are the same jump but the lutz is an outside edge and since most skaters these days use the wrong edge it sometimes gets confusing.

        Its all about adding up point and getting level 3 or 4 for your spins because you get more points.

        The have PCS which is basically the presentation but they cheat like crazy so its pretty much free points.

        Everything you do gets points and if you do it really well you get plus 1-2- or 3 points for your execution which again is just another way to cheat for who they like, AKA Carolina Kostner.

      • icemeltsfast Says:

        GTT, thanks!
        I used to be so confused over the “flip” because I expect a salto like in gymnastics but then all I see is what looks like a another jumping spin, haha

        Do you get CV’s for combos also? And, gymnastics totally has super subjective execution point, like artisty +0.1 and style +0.1 etc… That’s why it’s so hard figuring out e-scores for me.

        And in the old code, was it less about points and difficult, etc?

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I am the same way with jumps – used to get confused all the time with the lutz and flip, but could identify anything else. The axel is the easiest to identify too because of a forward take-off. It’s the hardest jump to triple too – so if you see a woman doing a triple axel it’s a pretty amazeballs thing. Tonya Harding did one back in the day, and I believe Mao Asada does one now pretty consistently. Midori Ito I think was one of the first to do one in competition (she competed in the Yamaguchi days) and I will always remember her falling literally and skating (on accident) into the camera booths during one of her programs.

        Aw, figure skating used to be SO much better!

        The combinations are typically seen in the jumps, and do get extra points (although I don’t know the amount now because this code is so different than what I am used to), so for instance a triple lutz combined with a triple toe-loop, and they have to be done right after the other. Kostner fell on her combo jump (the second one; it looked like a triple toe-loop). You usually see the toe loop jumps as the second jump of a combo. Michelle Kwan used to do triple toe-loop/triple toe-loop or triple lutz/triple toe-loop but that was always very hard for her; yet Michelle’s presentation was so superior it never really mattered and back then figure skating was more “figure” skating as opposed to “chuck it” skating where it’s non-stop skate/jump now.

        Yuna Kim’s SP was nearly flawless and I actually appreciated her footwork sequences; although I do agree the neck thing was distracting. It should have been a different color or something. Or just eliminated altogether. She should have been eons ahead of Kostner; that is a DISGRACE. Kostner’s spins were very sloppy and she was traveling all over the place. Are you kidding me?!?!

        Who is this Kostner person? It used to be where if you had a fall in your SP your were basically doomed and the only way you could even get a medal would be to hope that everyone else falls all over the place on the LP (assuming you don’t fall in the LP). That is blatant judge cheating and if I were a coach of another athlete I’d contest those scores. That’s just stupid. I can’t even watch anymore.

        Meanwhile, Sasha Cohen is literally crying that she wasn’t born later because if she were competing under this code she’d be world champion time and time again despite falling all over the place I’m sure!

    • icemeltsfast Says:

      Oh and Sanity– delayed reply, but yeah, Shawn fell in the BB EF during world’s. On her tucked full, which is understandable haha.

      And yup, I see your point. I sure wouldn’t have contested anything if Nastia got the BB gold– with the trending high e-scores Nastia received during the whole competitions and all.

  3. tortuga Says:

    Sorry to interject with non-skating comments, but finally a dress that shows off Aly’s figure!..

    Kickin it enews with @aly_raisman instagr.am/p/W2jwR7TPIj/— Mark Ballas (@MarkBallas) March 14, 2013

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I think the yellow is out of place on that dress but I really think Aly was just shy about her weight gain after the Olympics.

      She probably put on 15 pounds and after being skinny it probably effected the way she dressed. She seems to have lost some weight since then and probably feels better about herself so the dresses are becoming more fitting.

      Its okay about the comment. Nothing seems on topic anymore in these blogs.lol

      • tortuga Says:

        Well I’m so glad to see she’s back in shape and showing it off. Going on tour and not training so hard would probably effect Jordyn and Aly most out of the team. The others are pretty stickly.

  4. Case Says:

    US Figure Skating is such a snooze these days that I barely pay attention. Any chance one of these biotches snaps and pulls a Tonya Harding? That kind of drama might compel me to pay attention for like two seconds.

    When Kwan retired from the sport she took me with her.

  5. JAS4 Says:

    Looks like we will be waiting for baby Kwans to save figure skating lol

  6. VTHokie Says:

    I feel like I dreamed in Latvian last night – as I have been watching so much of the sketchy online Worlds coverage these past few days. USFSA/IceNetwork aren’t showing ANY of the worlds competition until after Worlds – forcing us to find sketchy ways to watch.

    Anyway, I grew up skating (still skate) and If you want impressive skating – watch the ice dance competition. I know to non-skaters it’s probably the most boring aspect of figure skating, but if you watch the speed, edges and control these skaters have it’s exciting!

    I can also tell you that I have never liked Kostner. I’m not really a fan of Ashley either – there’s just something about her that bothers me – I’m not impressed. I feel the ladies event, in general, was horribly judged. And I completely agree that women’s skating in the US lacks greatly – sadly 😦

    Pairs is live right now – on (not as sketchy as sportLemon) Latvian TV – http://www.ltv7.lv/files/player-licensed.swf?file=ltv7_2_lv&streamer=rtmp://stream.ls.lv/ltv7_2_lv&type=rtmp&autostart=true

    (one final note – if you watch on sportlemon or other streams that put those ads in front of the feed – do not click on those, or install anything! Simply just maximize the screen view and they’ll go away)

    • Uglyfatkid Says:

      I agree, both Ashley and Cosner are bla to me. It’s sad too, because I used to really love figure skating. I hope Yuna kicks all of their asses. I wonder if USA gymnastics is going to take a dive in the future like skating has? Scary/interesting thought.

  7. GymMom Says:

    Gabby wrote another book…..Raising The Bar. Sales of her first book were dismal.

    She is now a client of a woman in Tennessee who used to rep Britney Spears….another trainwreck.

    http://m.justjaredjr.com/pl/2013/03/14/gabby-douglas-is-raising-the-bar/

    • GymMom Says:

      Some of Lou M Taylor’s(Gabby’s new agent) former clients: Lindsay Lohan; Jose Canseco; Courtney Love; Ron Artest(Metta World Peace); Jamie Spears….and now Gabby Douglas. Wow….just wow!!

    • Sara Says:

      Does anyone know how it did? I’m sure not well, but I’m curious. I know it was number 4 on one of the New York Times though. I didn’t read it but if it was anything like Shawn’s book (of which I only read to page 35), it must have been awful.

      • GymMom Says:

        It’s already in paperback & selling at a little over $3.00 on Amazon.

        http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0545556740

      • Gymbee Says:

        Shawn’s book was awful. I quit reading it, but recently forced myself through it just for the sake of it. Can’t imagine Gabbys is better.

        Gabby Douglas has a training program with Nike Training Club. I have the app on my phone, and the new version has her doing something. Didn’t check what it is yet.

      • exgymgurl Says:

        Gabby did the one 15 minute workout with Nike training club and teen vogue. Its a workout with essentially no equipment.

  8. exgymgurl Says:

    Thats not Gabbys Authored book gymmom…her book was called Grace Gold and Glory… Still $16.49 hardcover
