    Korpi really needs to ditch the reputation of a weak LP skater. It used to be the other way round. When she got the bronze at the Europeans, she was 5th after SP and the year before she made the Olympic team because her strong LP beat Alisa Drei at the Europeans. Her choice of music deserves better than another 80 or 90 point skate.

    But the listing in the first post is not the skate ordar, right? The will skate in the reverse order of their short program placement?

    Joannie can still win this. So can Rachael.

    Oh ye of little faith. Mirai is gonna skate the lights out

    I would say Caro is in a better position than either Joannie or Rachael. She can afford a mistake and they can't.

    I think Kostner can win this, and will if she skates halfway decent.. which, surely she has to manage *sometimes* in an LP, no?

    Rachel has a decent shot, if Kostner doesn't step up and Rochette not near-perfect.

    Joannie can definitely still win, but is dependent on Kostner not skating well, and at least a couple of small errors from Korpi and Nagasu. Certianly within the realm of expectation, but not in her control.

    Korpi has an outside shot. Nagasu is an unknown factor to me, but can't count her out.

    Should be an exciting FS!

    I see the odds somtething like this:

    Kostner 30%
    Rochette 30%
    Flatt 20%
    Korpi 10%
    Nagasu 10%

    The LP Personal Best
    Mirai-106.62 TS-168.82
    Kiira-103.62 TS-164.82
    Caro-120.40 TS-181.52
    Akiko-112.08 TS-171.6
    Rachael-113.41 TS-172.21
    Fumie-120.06 TS-175.52
    Joannie-124.16 (126.39 at the Japan Open) TS-176.28;178.51 ( if she hit like at the Japan Open)

    This are the personal best of the top 7 ladies as you can see and the ones that are still in medal position. The second score or the TS(Total Scores) if the hit this scores.
    So, If they were to hit the scores would hint that: Carolina,Joannie, and Fumie for the top three medals.

    The scores can happen but I just don't see it happening for Fumie or Carolina. It may happen for Fumie but for I dont see it happening for Carolina. She is a good skater but the last time she hit a good score in the long was that the 2009 Europeans which was 114.06. Even if she were to hit that score, she would only score a 175.18. Her jumps have been off lately. I think it will be:
    Joannie Rochette-Gold
    Rachael-Silver
    Fumie,Akiko, or Mirai for the bronze.
    The four for the silver and bronze,Rachael,Fumie,Akiko, and Mirai, can switch around.

    Speaking of scores I just read that Marai's 62.20 is the second best SP score for this season topped only by Yuna.

    If her LP is close to or a little better than her pb she will medal and possibly win.

    Go Marai

    Mirai

    Her SP is the only one I've watched on YouTube so far, and she looked comfortable.
    Good luck to her, Rachael, and Bebe!!

    Also thank you to the organizers for putting the Ladies LP first (so that I can follow it live. )!!!

    That was in junior events and they do less jumps and elements, so the score tent to be low. Mirai only two seniors events are last year SA and NHK, where she struggle with injury and growth sprout. She can difinitely score higher.

    I find myself looking forward to this LP quite a bit, it's a rather hard one to predict!
