I'm tired of seeing kostner overscored. I mean yes, I get it, it's KOSTNER and the mere fact that she's still competing is amazing and she brings something to the table that most skaters don't have but she got a lot of 9's (and above) in transitions and I'm like ????????? her programs have less transitions than wakaba's what the hell judges (kostner should be in third and not by much above kaori tbh)
Look, I am one of those few people who are willing to admit that her PCS are too high lol
Of course, she’s amazing, I respect her and all, but TR and CO…tbh, even if I end up getting hate over it: her SS aren’t as good as they were in 2014 either. Wakaba doesn’t deserve that much less on SS. She should be higher in TR and CO for sure (Wakaba’s got some of the best choreo among senior ladies this season tbh.). IN and PE are more complex to judge, but Wakaba is one of the most mature ladies at the moment tbh. I don’t think standings would change, because Wakaba had technical problems today, but there shouldn’t be that difference between them, no.
That said, I am scared by Wakaba’s URs at the moment so please, let me cry in a corner now.
