    Check it out. I think it is a very balanced article.

    That article was fairly accurate but I don't think Arakawa's spins/spirals were ahead of eeryone. It was more a matter of her being most complete & aoiding obious flaws.

    And something tells me Irina's biography will not be titled "Postitie Thinking and Acting with Grace." The 18 or 20 and have nothing line hit me entirely wrong!!!

    I agree! I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but Arakawa used the same spin sequence [camel/donut/sit] for three of her spins. How is repeating something over and over inventive and engaging?

    drops her hip

    And Arakawa drops her hip getting into her donut - something Uncle Dick commented on with every other skater who does it, but not with Arakawa. Hummm.

    I'd like to know how this writer knows that Irina threw her medal in a locker in the dressing room. Is it just me, or does it sound kind of sad that Sasha thinks her silver is just another medal?

    It sounds like another medal headed for the shoebox.
