    Michelle Kwan was never in the European Championships(she is an American) neither is she a professional skater. Get your facts straight.

    Costner is nowhere NEAR ranked “#1 in the World” – that’s currently Yu-Na Kim from South Korea. Check the ISU website for the current world rankings (

    of course, they didn’t take anything even goe wise for her ur’s and double footing of jumps. outside of her first triple-triple the rest was sloppy and two-footed. gave her full credit plus and added goe’s to all her jumps, took off of michelle’s jumps though.
