    It's not an apples to apples comparison. Now skaters get bonus points and falls get 1/2 point deduction whereas back then, falls got a full point deduction

    I agree that ladies are trying harder elements at younger ages and many are succeeding. But there are still ALOT of underrotations and PCS seems to still rule over technical on the lower levels (novice and below).

    You can make a technical skater prettier. It is much harder to make an underrotated jumper fully rotated.

    She can only "Attempt" 1 combo in the SP. She singled her loop and that was the only Combo she's allowed in the SP. I believe even a "Pop" counts as an attempt. Someone else can correct me if this is wrong.

    Yes, had she not added the 1Lo onto the 3Lz she could have attempted a combo later.
