    Thank you.

    Pretty sure this has been dissected to death and well balanced simply means that all the required elements are included.

It's all so rushed – and not in a way that looks like it's some kind of deliberate choreographic choice, but in a way that looks like either the choreographer just didn't care enough about anything besides technical elements and checking off boxes to leave enough time for the skater to achieve this, or Zagitova is too young to understand how to properly deliver the movements. I get the impression it's probably a combination of the two. This really should impact her PCS — she should not be close to the top ladies in PCS yet.
    I feel the same way about Zagitova's performances. I really hope she'd improve because otherwise she looks like a star.

    Satako's performance here was one of the best displays ever of skating skills from a lady. Her mastery of the blade is exceptional. Beautiful overall performance too, except for failing to hold her ending pose. This should have been the PCS winner. Now if only she could somehow rotate those jumps.

    The term "well balanced program" does not only mean that. This term has been used forever in figure skating to describe programs that are choreographically well constructed.
