Even in practice, when has she stepped out of a triple loop?

    Ugh, I hope I'm just over-reacting and that they just showed those three jumping passes out of millions of successful ones.

    However, I still stand by my prediction.

    Mao, Miki, ? (I sadly don't think we'll see an American on the podium...)

    O ye, of little faith.

    okay,it's no question that Mao and Miki are two of top.
    Mao makes few mistakes in competetion,but she does a lot in EX programs.
    anyway hope she could do her best in sp.she might change it if the score doesn't go up even 3a is beautifully done.

    1. Miki
    2. Mao
    3. Not sure.

    I don't think Mao can win Miki unless she corrects her problems with jumps...
    (Maybe she could if Miki makes several mistakes)

    Miki
    Mao
    Ashley or Alissa

    i think the order of Miki and Mao will change near the Grand prix final or the olympics, though

    *Ahem* Not to brag or anything, but check out my original prodictions: Czisny, Sebestyen and Leonova on the podium. After the short, I am off by only 0.4 points (Ando inthird ahead of Leonova by that amount.

    This will be a nailbiter. Less than three points between first and fifth. Plus Asada can make up ground in a hurry!

    I hope one of Czisny and Wagner can medal (both would be great, but I'll stay realistic here)

    I don't see Asada finishing off the podium. Remember at her GP last year (or was it the year before) that was had a nasty short (and was behind Emily Hughes) but cam back and won. Asada's career has been built off coming back after bad shorts. Cziny and Sebeyscen don't stand a chance against mightly mao.

    Unfortunately, two of your girls are well-known for bombing like no other. I really need them to bomb by the way, I have 1. Miki, 2. Mao, 3. Ashley. I need at least one or two placements right, I might have a chance at a Top Ten placement in the Official FSU Prediction contest then.

    Ahem, of course I want everyone to skate their best tomorrow and nobody should bomb. Then again, if every girl skates to her abilities tomorrow, I don't need anyone to bomb, because Miki's and Mao's abilities are huge.

    I had a hunch Alissa was overdue for a good skate.
    So call it predwishing, or hope,...... or just Alissa showing what she is capable of.
    Maybe it is good she stepped out her 2A coz having the lead heading into the LP might have put added pressure on her . (Did I really just say that? )

    I had Miki first, Mao 2nd and Alissa third. I like my odds at the moment.

    With full confidence for a great skate tomorrow I roar out........Go Alissa.!!

    So you are saying, "To bomb, or not to bomb, that is the question."
