    Nishino has been practicing 3/3s, and sometimes that can throw off jump timing. I recall Emily Hughes working on 3/3s two seasons back, and it threw her timing off so badly that she was underrotating her triples.

    Growth spurt/puberty bug is another possibility: Yuki just turned 15, an age when skaters can suddenly find it difficult to do things that were once easy because of changes in the body.

    The standings after the OD are pretty much as I had expected. Looks like the medal contenders are the Shibutanis, Ralph/Hill, Mysliveckova/Novak (if they can stay on their feet in the FD), and Ukrainians V/S. The French G/P have an outside chance to sneak into the medals if they skate exceptionally well and one or more teams ahead of them have a rough go in the FD.

    Congratulations to Kristine, Becky and Diane!

    Kristine popped a double axel but looking at the score sheet, everything else was alright. She must have improved on her consistency.

    Kristine skated a good SP at Liberty--the LP was not quite as good.

    And thanks for telling us the ladies' protocols are up!

    I'm pleased to see that Becky got credit for a 2A3t and that neither Kristine nor Becky had a serious edge call. That's a true improvement for young American skaters.

    Yes, that's great that neither got edge calls and both have a lutz and flip in their jump arsenal.

    I am very excited by Becky Bereswill. I saw her programs from Liberty on Youtube and she is a beautiful skater to watch.

    Seems like it was a great day for the Canadians. Great for Szmiett to medal. I can't think of the last time that a Canadian girl won a medal on the JGP circuit. As for Rylie, I'd assume that Skate Canada will give her a second JGP berth after this. 7th place! Thanks to nadster for all of that info on her. As for Ralph/Hill, i'm not surprised to see them up there. Hopefully they stick ot out for silver, since gold seems to be a little out of reach.

    I really liked Becky at Liberty myself!

    Got about seven stammering minutes. Romain Ponsart is/was skating to Four Seasons-has fallen/fell at least twice.

    Edit: Not absolutely certain of this, but the commentators mentioned Petr Bidar while the scores were being announced(In French, didn't managed to catch them), so I think he might be in the lead right now.

    Okay, they showed Eliot's total score of 155.05, and I'm fairly certain the commentator said he was in second behind Chao Yang.

    Paul Poirier fell at least once; didn't look too happy afterwards. Unfortunately it shorted out before they showed his score.

    159.17 for Christopher Boyadji. There was probably a triple axel involved, the commentators were effusive in their praise, and he looked very happy, though I think he just might still be behind Chao Yang.
