The Canadian girls finish 2nd actually for 0.39 and she was underscore... :sick:

 

Nagasu "only" landed the triple axel cleanly... The only women capable of doing it here, and only the 8th in history...

 

Kostner made a mess with half of her jumps. Her scorecard shows 3 (!) under rotations.

This team event format looks very stupid, why not giving 10-8-6-4-2 points for the free skating. with this format short programs mostly determine the medal winners.

 

 

 

Indeed, it's basically short program team event.

Could someone please tell me why this is an olympic event? It is certainly more competitive than luge relay for example, but aren't they basically just adding the results of the individual events, in the sense that you get a team medal on top of all the individual medals you win.

If Germany can get an extra gold in luge relay, and Norway can get extra golds in x-country relays and the Dutch can get more golds in team speed skating, we can have one in team figure skating.  


As a Canadian, we're not really strong at the events where one person can win 4, 5, 6 medals (biathlon, x-country, even speed skating).  Most of our athletes only have one shot, short track being the one exception.  It's nice for us to get a little bone finally.  If we can put up with certain countries getting golds for 15km races, 15.2 km races, 15 km race but this time skiing a little differently, etc., then you guys can put up with us getting one gold in a team event.

My problem is that the team result is basically only an addition of the individual performances, right? Maybe it's a bit hard to express, but in other team events it's more like a relay, where your position depends on the results of your teammates. For example in biathlon relay you have to start with a disadvantage of x seconds if your teammate finished x seconds behind the leader and then you have to overtake athletes ahead of you and you probably feel additional pressure by having to overtake the athletes ahead of you, so it's a different situation every time, but in the figure skating team it doesn't really seem to be like that. Don't get me wrong, i think this event is more competitive than luge relay and figure skating is far more popular than luge, so it's is only fair that it has more events, i am just not sure whether the team event is really a fitting "format" for figure skating.

I think they could do it better, with the long program gaining more points.  There's always room for improvement.
