I do not understand what the problem is? The Russian skater and her coach played based on how to get as many points as possible to win. Her skating, albeit not elegant, was very technical and complex. Her spins were fantastic. Her jumps were also more complex. Her bad jump was only for a double not a triple.
She played for the points and won. Kim and Kustner both had elegance but lacked the complexity of the Russians it was almost like they were playing based on the old system.
