I guess, that you should forget about competition and judges to really appreciate it. It's just beautiful and has a lot of elaborate details.Thanks, that helps a lot.
So I guess this program is more for the judges and experts to appreciate?
I think the casual fans like myself were looking around and asking 'so that's it?'
Of course, it's very subjective.
Well, the supposedly most exciting competition turned out to be a yawner. SP took all the suspense out of it. Meh...
Some of the other Gp events, even with lesser fields, might be more exciting because the scores might be closer.
Yay! Congratulations Yuna, Mao, Yukari!!!
Yuna, what can I say. You are the best!!!! When she missed the flip, I was so shocked. It's so uncharictaristic of her, almost bizzare. I wonder if the ice had some problem? I don't know...
I absolutely love her blue costumes. Very classy and she looks just stunning in that blue.
I'm most impressed with her steps. It looks so fluid! Smooth!! Her skating skill really improved. I just admire her more and more...
And to anyone who doesn't get her score...
Well, her jumps are super solid, intricate movements in and out of jumps, tano, everything she does garners +GOE. THAT is her strategy: to make what you have as perfect as they get.
It's not new, you already knew that! Uh... didn't you..? Oh, well... then...
Some people mocked that strategy, saying that she doesn't challenge new tricks. I'm just so happy her efforts are paying off.
As for Mao, I'm glad she had much better showing than JO and yesterday's SP. I have to confess that after that SP I thought she might have a totallmelt down here. I was wrong. Good job, Mao!
I can't say I love the dress though. It's just... let's say it's not my cup of tea.
I actually prefer this LP to her then LP and now SP a lot. A LOT.
I wish her to consider to get a new SP. Tango. Caprice. Lavender. Or totally new one!
Yukari, I know she had a shoulder injury. You did an excellent job! At first I really didn't like this Firebird LP, but now I kind of like it! I'll like it even more if she drop her pants and wear skirt. Her spirals are much better and spins are beautiful as usual. But her jumps.....
Carolina looked very beautiful in her blue costume and I think the music fits her very well. If the jumps are there, I'll really like this routine I think. But it seems like coach was not the source of her problem.
Caroline looked very nervous and almost on the verge of crying to me! I'm a little worried... Kudos, Caroline!!
