    Wow, for me, best I could do was not even a single rotation.

    I apologize if you took it offesive but I was just curious as I couldn't even do one full rotation as a mere mortal. I never meant to say that you should not talk about it if you can't.

    And I thought it would be pretty hard for a female skater to do 2A on ground.

    Anyway, I'm seriously not fussed about what she eats. Vegetarians and vegans don't eat any kind of meat and still live healthy, active lifestyles. As long as she's happy and not suffering from eating disorders, I think a restrictive diet is fine, so long as it's balanced. (I think everyone is just concerned, not judgemental, especially after Jenny mentioned many skaters suffer from eating disorders)

    Since when has this turned into a thread about Yu Na's diet? I think we ought to set up a new thread just for this .
    And looks like Yuna and Mao`s height is the same. in a summer interview of Mai to Mao, she said that Mao`s weight is 47kg, same as Yuna, and Mao has a nutricionist of Weider, then I don`t think is a coincidende, yuna and Mao`s nutricionist know what is the normal weight for a girl of that height, age and athlete.

    oh, yes, the predictions! 1. yuna 2. Flatt 3. Fumie (I hope)

    sorry my english

    She can definitely defy gravity! How many of you can do 2A on ground?

    Hmm. I think there is an actual reason why this has gone off-topic. The whole line-up is not really exciting. In every discipline you can pick out the winner.

    Ladies - duh.

    Men - I still think that this was specially set up for Lysacek, so that he can win SA for the first time in his career. There is 95% probability that he will win this. The only real rival they had to pick was from the 4th-6th at Worlds, and from those they picked Verner, who is the most likely to bomb.

    Dance - I managed to predict every dance podium right so far this season. Which has nothing to do with luck or skill (I know nothing about dance), but with the horrific predictability of every dance event.

    Pairs - even if the Shen/Zhao have a mistake here or there, they are not going to lose this competition.

    Yu-Na's diet

    Sorry for another Yu-Na's diet post.

    I've just read an article in Korean (written today) quoting what people around Yu-Na said about her. Koo Dong-Hee, VP of IB Sports (Yu-Na's agency), said, "Yu-Na barely eats dinner for figure skating. She eats cereal a little (for dinner). Because of the time difference, I speak with her on the phone during the night time of Toronto. Whenever I speak with her, she says she is hungry... She never eats more than what's planned. I feel sorry for her."

    I think Evan is the most maligned skater on this Board, and he is a World Champion. He's won over everyone in his career save Plush and Stephane.

    This is the song that doesn't end ~~ yes it goes on and on my friends!

    Charlie Horse, no, no. Stop! Stop! Charlie, stop! I want you to go away! Go away!

    (First Sesame Street, now Lamb Chop's! I guess I'm feeling a little nostalgic lately.)
