I liked her "Otonal". Even if she comes in last, I won't be surprised if she gets new fans by skating as well as she can.
But for the gold, I'm rooting for Miki Ando. Since Yu-Na is injured, I'm not sure what will happen--whether she'll withdraw, or try to fight through it.
Julia has found her way into a fairly prestigious competition by winning in weak fields skating very average programs.
Actually, I find with Sarah M. it's more or less the same- in a more balanced roster she probably would not have made it.
Now she'll be up against some of the best in the field. I think she'll get respect if she simply skates a strong routine regardless of where she ends up.
But with everyone (including me) thinking she'll be last, stranger upsets have occurred. Are we being set up for one now?

I hope she does well And MM might be right, I wont put it past any skater to have a remarkable skate and blow the doors off the comp. I am just happy for all that made it to the GPF.
but where is the Fumie cheering squad???
All Hail Queen Yu-Na!!!!!!
I've got the Yu-Na Kim Cheering squad :
I love her program when she won the Europeans!! Amazing
