I had trouble putting the two together, too. When I saw the picture I winced for its vulgarity. What is artistic or beautiful about having a crotch thrust in your face?!
I'm finding it hard - no, impossible - to reconcile Natalia's glowing account with the photograph of Eun Ji Ha in the NYT (see links for today). Somebody please tell me this isn't a typical pose!

As one who was there and saw the 'total gamut' of performances, I can state with confidence that Eun Ji Ha -- single-fouettes and all -- was MILES above any of the other women. For example, she would have easily beaten one Sarah Lamb, who earned a silver at this competition two years ago. Eun is that much better than Lamb, as a total artist. And you can quote me on that one!

however i should point out that sarah lamb competed in this competition 7 years ago, in 2000, and not in 2005.

I know that the format for this one is different to Jackson and Varna (from what I've read, at any rate), in that the dancers don't learn the pieces until they arrive in NYC. I know they prepare one piece in advance, but they don't know what they will be dancing until the start of the competition. For most other competitions, aren't the variations practised for quite some time in advance?

I don't really think you can call that an arabesque penche. I don't know what it is, but it's certainly not an arabesque.
Is this what competitions have come to?

If you positioned two of those 12-o'clock vertical legs side by side, you could hang a banner between them. (Just a thought.)
