    Hopefully she'll get the second spot and I can see her at JGPF.
    I don't think it's a hopefully. No way is Kanako not getting another spot based on this performance.

    I'm sure of it, too.

    I'm extremely excited to see her Swan Lake program, because I don't think she's ever done anything like it

    I know but JSF seems to send Kondo(4th in Budapest) instead of Nakamura(2nd in Lake Placid) to the JGP event in Zagreb. Now that Japan had only 2 more spot after Torun, if Kondo go to Zabreb, only 1 spot left. Which one would go to Istanbul, Hanyu or Nakamura?

    I think it's just ludicrous. JSF sometimes does very strange decision.

    Do you really believe that?
    Though they resistered with Kondo because they had to do it by a certain time, it was just a temporary thing. They have no intention to send Kondo who was the fifth place finisher over Nakamura. They just used Kondo's name to resister because he was the first competitor of this series. They are not stupid as you think.

    BTW

    Yahooooo, Yuzuru did it!

    Last week it was the Americans and this week it is the Japanese. Kanako breaking 160 and Hanyu almost breaking 200 beating second by 27 pts. T/T pair team lookink strong. The russians are looking very strong too.

    Messing did a great job of comming back strong in the long program finish third in the freeskate.

    Talk about comeback - the German dude, placing 20th in the short, 8th in the free and 10th overall? Not bad! Not bad at all!

    Mervin is a Canadian citizen, and would need to give that up to obtain the Japanese citizenship that would make them Olympic eligible :(

    Thank you bluelutz. I hope JSF is not that stupid. We'll see soon.Anyway, I'm very happy for Japan team. Very good news for JGPS which is going to be held in Japan.

    And also I'm very glad that Keegan Messing did have a pretty good free program despite of his injury. I wish he could be back in perfect shape next evemt.

    Aww.. this is so sweet.

    From Taylor Toth's diary in icenetwork...

    I am also very proud of my partner. I am not just saying this because I should or because my mom told me to (which she did). But, I am more than proud of Felicia in her first few months in pairs, and she has already come so far. She truly deserves a medal and I promise to help her get one.

    I am pretty sure that Kondoh's Zagreb assignment is just a placeholder. The Japanese have been known in the past to yank an assignment from one skater and give it to another who scored more points.

    I imagine the Japanese skaters knew from the beginning that the second assignment would go to the higher finishing skaters, especially with such few spots.
