My greatest respect to such a thourough preview, must have took lots of energy ....
I'm a little worried for Akiko, since the situation is similar to her 4CC participation last season.
I hope this time she can be free from feeling being gifted a big chance.
She shouldn't feel obligated, she earned and deserves her spot.
Very interesting cast in all disciplines.
Who broadcasting by Internet?
Yes-s-s-s! for Skatebuzz. It wasn't showing earlier in the day and I was going into panic mode...now I feel better.
That article was good in some respects, but does anyone actually expect Leonova to medal? I'd expect her to be closer to the bottom, and Akiko too because of her edge calls. I think Wagner should probably be ahead of both of them if she skates well. Ashley could even beat Joannie if Joannie does a repeat of her SC freeskate....which would be bound to score much lower not in Canada. Alena is cute and has a lot of energy but she seems the most juniorish of the bunch, I wouldn't be surprised if she was 6th, but maybe i'm not giving her enough credit. The author of the article certainly seems to think she's great
