If you tell me that Yuna didn’t take risk, we can’t be friends. LOL. But seriously, we just can’t be friends if you think her BV is so fucking low or she played it safe. It’s a calculated risk to put all your chips into your GOEs and PCS. TES is not just base value, guys; it’s BV + GOE. It just so happens that she got screwed over in her GOEs and PCS. Look at Yuna’s jumps. There’s a reason why Scott Hamilton keeps calling them textbook perfect.
Also, Yuna makes her circular step sequence look so easy. She follows a CW path while her natural rotation direction is CCW. Majority of the things she does in the sequence is done in one foot. And she’s doing all that with good speed, while changing edges – clear edge changes – and not compromising her choreography. Kurt Browning was right, you don’t become a better skater overnight. Yuna, Mao and Caro took years to build their PCS, and to make their skating look effortless. It’s crazy and stupid that they weren’t rewarded accordingly.
Just getting it out there because I’ve never ranted about this shit right after the ladies finals.
