    Miki Ando
    Triple Lutz - Double Loop - good
    Attempt of Quad Salchow - only double, bad fall
    missed a clean Triple jump
    Combination spin - good speed, decent positions
    Spiral Sequence - alright
    Triple Rittberger - good
    missed some parts, my mother disturbed me
    Double Axel - 2 - good
    Great footwork
    Combination spin - very nice

    I am still impressed that she managed to fix her spins. They look so much better now. How much was she in front of Zhang? Some of those doubles should be downgraded, I think it's a concentration thing, she probably can do that very clean.

    Score: 105.44, Zhang mulekicked herself on the podium!

    There is no individual podium... But I think we can now safely project the final team standings:
    1. USA
    2. Canada
    3. Japan
    4. France
    5. Russia
    6. China

    I knew the Americans would win. They have more depth than the Canadians and are actually competetive in all four disciplines, unlike everyone else.

    Oh, and well done to Caroline and Rachael. Now, ladies, please get some interesting music for next year.

    Such a shame. She should have gone for 2A-3T instead of 4S. Her score was so much higher at Worlds even with downgraded 3L.The quad is just too risky.

    Her spins really improved this season!

    Too bad, I rooted for Japan. With Miki 2nd and Kozuka a bit higher they could have easily get a better placement...

    Joannie Rochette
    Triple Lutz - fall-out
    Triple Flip - clean and high
    Triple Rittberger - very nice and clean
    Sitspin - alright
    Upright spin - okay
    Triple Lutz - Double Toe - Double Loop - clean
    Triple Toeloop - Triple Salchow - a bit shaky
    Footwork - okay
    Double Axel - nice
    Triple Salchow - nice
    Combination spin - okay

    I am never going to be her biggest fan, but she has a nice quality over the ice. Great consistency too, this season. I like her fully rotated jumps, there is barely no underrotation, not even 1/8 or anything like that.

    Score: 120,08

    My web-tv is out again.

    Well, you've got to land your jumps, and after the hard fall Miki visibly struggled. I doubt anybody predicted Mao in 4th place at Worlds, or Kozuka placing so low here. At least Miki got the highest PCS so far...

    Miki is inconsistent. Zhang and Flatt are fairly consistent. It's not THAT surprising. Miki's definetly better but she's got to land the jumps. And sometimes she doesn't.

    OK, I know Caroline is slow and has a mule-kick, but should Joannie really have been almost 9 points ahead of her on PCS? I mean, Joannie is a good skater but she's not blowing anyone away like Yu-Na Kim. Is 7.90 for interpretation warranted? Any thoughts from those of you who are actually watching?

    BTW, both Caroline and Rachael beat Joannie on TES.

    I think she's extremely consistent if we consider her injuries. Many skaters would not be able to skate nearly as well as she does when bothered by lesser injuries. Some fall apart because of a cold. I'm always impressed how quickly Miki is able to recover. At Japanese Nationals she was thinking of withdrawing and could not even jump in the Gala, but she delivered great, clean skates at Worlds and looked really strong in the practices and in the SP here... And her LP wasn't that bad, considering the fact that she probably skated in pain.
