    Ashley, rule #1, when you are competing against the Russians you have to be 10 times better, not as good as or a little bit better, you have to be A LOT better, just ask Michelle Kwan.

    You threw it away, hopefully you make the podium. Nevertheless, good skate.

    Ashley in third. She qualifies for GPF for the 1st time, right (Leonova too)?

    And she barely makes the podium in 3rd. She's happy with it, thus so am I.

    One silver & one bronze, looking good to make the Olympic Team.

    Are you being serious?

    So glad Ashley medaled there. She could've won without the errors but whatever, still a good day for her. This should put both her and Leonova in the final, right?

    Are you sure you're watching the same competition as the rest of us?
    Leonova took the FS because she landed her jumps and the others didn't... Had the others landed on their feet they would have been in front of her with a good margin.

    Man, this was one bad competition...

    Seriously, Ando takes the gold for THAT performance???

    Asada really should get out of her mess and come back to her normal form soon; otherwise the ladies events won't be interesting this season.

    The second 3Flip was underrotated, plus she had a fall on an underrotated 3Sal. Doubled out on the Lutz too (she simply doesn't have this jump anymore...at all).

    It's too bad. Yukari had BY FAR the best artistry here.

    Indeed. Same medalists (and winner) as Cup of Russia but even less quality in the skating this time. BLAH.

    Just woke up , thanks for all the comments.

    It appears this was another slopfest but results are good for ISU.
    Without Mao, Miki must be at GPF, and having a USA and Russian Lady will add interest.

    Sorry to hear Laura struggled but it appears they all did except for Alena.
    She is a breath of fresh air and showing that she is a good competitior.

    thanks! Yukari's scores were indeed a bit unfortunate as she made less visible mistakes than Laura and they scored almost the same. This may be exactly what Jenny Kirk was talking about!

    Let me caculate this; note I will be figuring this out as I type:

    Miki Ando is currently the first lock for the Finale. Leonova and Ashley are 2-3; Leonova squeaks past Ashley on the score tiebreaker. Leonova would need less than five skaters to pass her, Ashley less than four. I am leaving out two skaters who haven't competed yet due to their low ranking, and saying there are six skaters who can pass them both:

    Yu-Na Kim: Probably will at Skate America next week.

    Rachael Flatt: Would need to win Skate America, so would need to beat Yu-Na, so probably won't.

    Akiko Suzuki: Would only need top four at Skate Canada, which I think she's got a very good shot at.

    Joannie Rochette: Would need at least silver at Skate Canada(at which point I think she would probably pass them), more likely than not I think she'll get that.

    Alissa Czisney and Caroline Zhang: Would both need to win Skate Canada. And when only one of them can, reduce number of skaters who can pass Ashley and Alena to five.

    So neither are yet locked, but for Alena to be passed, Rachael would have to win Skate America, Yu-Na would have to make the top four there, Czisney or Zhang would have to win Skate Canada, Rochette would have to win silver, and Suzuki would have to either win bronze or come in fourth. I think Alena will be locked next week, and Ashley's got a good chance.
    Whatever happens, there will now be an American lady in the Grand Prix Finale!

    It's hard to say she did not try. You could pop a jump for various reasons.
