Tough competition, but she did miss a big jump and had another 2 footed landing, automatic deductions. A panel of judges determined the outcome. Her poor sportsmanship may cost her from even being the alternate.A big part of teamwork is supporting each other and losing graciously. Ashley really blew it. I'm sure there was a way to quietly protest the score behind the scenes, but she chose to do it publicly and she only made herself look terrible.
I saw this, too. What a bad example. It’s cool to be disappointed but she went too far. I’d have been upset if my granddaughter was watching this, not everyone gets a trophy.. you messed up, come at it again, don’t pout like a spoiled baby. 😐
This is what happens when snowflakes don't get the complimentary trophy....they throw temper tantrum..and they are next in line to govern us?...I don't think so...we need to skip this particular generation for the safety of our country.
Scoring for figure skating can be fairly subjective. I think it’s sad that she didn’t make it but she did make some pretty big mistakes. She had a beautiful program though.
Call Tanya. Maybe she has a tip for you. (Actually, she learned her lesson, and realized that it doesn't pay to be a sore loser.)
Actually I thought she out performed a couple of the other athletes that won. But she should know better than to be a poor sport.
No one likes losing but there is a way to do it with pride and a way to do it like a spoiled 2 year old, we know which path she chose.
I used to be an avid fan of ice skating and saw how some would get a better score than others while making mistakes. At times it could be seen as an opinion rather that fact when there would be a significant difference when holding the score cards up. I lost interest years ago after Serghei died during practice leaving his wife with a dance partner. Loved watching those two.
I think this girl did a great job although she had her mishaps. But if the others did better then she has to accept it and keep working on her skills.Trophies are not always awarded regardless of how much hard work there is.
She needs to re-evaluate herself. To put on such a public display. Is going to follow her down the road. She needs to loose with dignity . It makes you a better person.
