Thread: Questioin about 2002 GPF-ladies

    Default Questioin about 2002 GPF-ladies

    At GPF in 2002 before the Olympics, how were the jump contents? I remember Sarah landed 7 triples including a 3-3, Michelle landed 6(fell on the final 3toe) but what about Irina? She was stumbled on her 3flip(I'm not pretty sure, though) and landed 3 or 4 clean jumps and still got 4 1st place ordinals. Anyone to give details? Thanks!

    off the top of my head, i believe it was 3 clean triples for irina, and there may have been a fall somewhere in her program, too. she was shamlessly propped up in that competion, fall or no fall. she should never have finished first with the skate she had.

    amen to that moskva. i don't think irina fell but she doubled several jumps and had many wonky landings in comparison to michelle and sarah. michelle had a beautiful program with the exception of the fall on the 3toe. this was a pure example of block judging. all of the old soviet block judges had irina 1st (4 of them) and the 3 western type judges had irina in 4th. all you can say is UHHHHHHH????? i think i lost 20 lbs that night becaue i threw up so much. while i understand that the issue of cheating judges had to be addressed at slc, there should have been something done about this competition because even a 2 yr old would have been able to judge and come out with a better result than that.

    i'm sure michelle in her heart knew she won that competition but she is such a lady that she would never speak or show her anger (if any) or bitterness. she took it in stride and moved on. i think i would have taken a skate blade to irina's leg!!! ok everyone, i'm just kidding. i just joined BG's angry mob group!!!!

    It was shameful. I thought Sarah should have been first in that part of the competition, then Michelle, then Irina.

    If my memory serves right, Michelle had all 1st place ordinals after Sarah skated. It seemed to me that was because the eastern judges wouldn't be generous on cheated jumps.

    yes, michelle had all 1st place ordinals after sarah skated and irina was the last to go. while i think michelle was robbed at both olympics (which I will not touch!!!!!) this one for some reason bothers me the most because it was so blatant. even if michelle had done 6 biellman spins in that program and created a new move where she did a triple loop in a biellman type position and then fell on the triple toe, she probably still would have lost. ok, a little over the top but i think you understand how i feel about this particular comp. her win would have done wonders for her confidence that year and the judges IMO were sending her a early christmas present which was wrapped and inside it said "live up to your magical standards or face the consequences. oh, and grab your face a few times as well. now that is choreography!!"

    ok, i better stop before i get in trouble so i am sorry to those who became offended with my comments!!

    PM me if necessary.
