I know what the critics say....It was an interpretive free skate....and
Josee was more inventive. Okay I do not contest that Josee was
more invnetive, she had the "interpretive" part down.....but what
about the other part....the "skate". If Josse had skated just a little
better....you know like landing the lutz then maybe I could understand
and go along with the results, but she didn't. In reality she only
landed one triple jump to michelle's three. I understand that it is
not all about the jumps but it is not as though Michelle had no
artistry, no interpretation, her program was solid both artistically
and technically, Josse's only artistically. Please don't get me wrong
I think it great for skater to push the envelope but they have to
present a full and balanced package both artistically and technically.
IMO Josee only fulfilled one half of the bargain and should not have
won that competition. Michelle had it all, she interpreted that music
well and she was technically sound.
P.S. Just so you know I am not an avid Michelle Kwan fan, but when I
see an injustice I point it out.
