Watching the replay, Ando did not double foot the 3lutz, but it def should have been counted as a UR in my opinion.
Sad night for the ladies. Happy for Ashley, Even she knows she can do better! Was the Ice surface zambonied after the Men"s competition? Could that have made a difference for the mistakes the ladies made?
She is so gorgeous. Obviously she was the highlight of ladies SP event!
Seriously, men's event was so much better...
Anyway, I think Ashley's lead is too small. I did notice her underrotation on her 2A, but still her other jumps were pretty solid, and her spirals and spins were waaaaay better than, say, Miki. Except that 2A< and her flutzing, it seemed speckless. IMO Ashley's program is a lot better than Miki's as well. Miki's Ex program was surely something, but this SP program is just totally different from that(except that crossing herself part), and same old same old Morozov thing. (By the way, I usually like Miki's makeup, but this time it was a bit.... off. I can't quite pin point what it is, but it was.... not flattering.)
And WTH is it with Sara's score?! Too low!!! What happened? Seeing her KnC reaction broke my heart...

I hope some body crack the 120+ mark in the SP. So far no ladies has crack the 115+ score and it's gettign sad. And Yuna is already way ahead with over 130+ score.
Sarah also usually get the edge call on her flip jump, so another deduction. Hopefully she pull it up in LP as she can definitely outscore everyone, except Miki.
This is a breakthrough year for Ashley! So happy that she can step it up at exactly the right time! (And she's lucky to get easier assignments than the other girls too). Seems like Rachael and Ash will be the 2 girls going to Olympics.
where are people finding the ladies' SPs on youtube?
and is Cynthia Phaneuf's up anywhere?
Anyways, go Ash and Laura!
ashley decent job--deserved pcs scores, more emotion-also needs more speed in steps sequence and her inbetween stuff. otherwise a bit of improvement over cor
miki did double foot her combination --sorry about that
personnally i agree with the standings and the scores.
miki better step it up a bit for the long.
alena look and skates to much like irina -needs to develop her own style so it doesn't come out so awkard.
laura needs to improve a bit--more speed, height -clean up jumps a bit.
Okay, let's see, you'll need 4Lz+3L, 3A, 2A and level 4 for everything, GOE +3 for everything, and....
I really really wish her everything good and hopefully she'll have a wonderful LP.
