    Since I am an American, I will say Akiko Kitamura, Yuko Muraki and Miyu Yamazaki.

    I am American, too, but that doesn't stop me from wanting the best skaters in the world to represent their respective countries!

    I'd like to see Mao, Miki and Yukari!

    Mao obviously. Miki another given. I love both Fumi and Yukari, but I think Yukari has had the short end of the stick so many times, it would be good for my 'heart' to see her on the team.

    IMO, akiko is better than yukari overall. Akiko is better than yukari at jumps, steps, skating skills, and presentation even though worse at spins. Yukari has some problems in her edges quality, steps, and jumps. I wish either her coach had taught her basics better or she had listened to her coach better when she was little.

    ETA: Despite that, Yukari may score better than Akiko on PCS. After all, Akiko is a new comer and Yukari was the 4th at 2008 Worlds. Although both Akiko and Fumie may get decent PCS at Nationals, JSF may feel that they shouldn't ignore their international reputations.
    So if everyone is clean, Yukari > Akiko > Fumie. But I am also getting a bit skeptical about Akiko's own nerves, esp. with less experience at big comps than the other two skaters.

    I like Mao, Miki and Akiko. Yukari's leg wrap is still distracting, and Fumie always looks kind of pissed off. Maybe its just the nerves...shrug.

    I want Mao to be there. But if she does not do well at the Nationals, I'd like her to stay home, which would be the best for everyone in such a case.

    Fumie absolutely should not go. She had her chances already and has lost both her consistency and her performance ability in the past few years. Everything she has done post 2006 has been disappointing.

    Between Yukari and Akiko, it's Akiko who is the better skater right now. Yukari is a wonderful performer but she hasn't been able to jump very well since 2008 Worlds.

    Yukari deserves a trip to the Olympics, though. The limit of 3 skaters per country still infuriates me. She should have been able to go in 2006 and, if she doesn't make top 3 at Japanese Nationals this year, she should still be able to go based upon her Grand Prix results.

    Huh? Ando, Suzuki, and Asada all finished ahead of Yukari on the grand prix this season.
