    What a boring, unattractive program. The tacky costume isn't helping, either. Someone please get Miki away from Morozov. Thank god it didn't win her the gold here - the way the judging has been going this weekend, I was concerned we'd see another ludicrous score.

    What did Yu-Na receive?

    Well, Yu-na won but I wouldn't call it convincing. Chink in the armor--she may indeed be beatable at OG with a couple of monster skates by someone.

    My two favorites were Akiko and Ashley. I think Akiko should have won the LP.

    It definitely wasn't a convincing outing for Yu-Na Kim, but I'm still glad she was able to come out and fight like she doesn't normally have to. I think it bodes well for her Olympic chances, and it also ensures that it will not just be a one-woman race in Vancouver because indeed, there will be stiff resistance.

    Agreed. She bombed in Torino and came back to win Worlds the next year. What a fighter!

    Well, I agree with the placements, although I think Akiko's PCS should have been higher (when will the judges respect her?)

    Everyone seemed very tense except Wagner and Akiko. Must have been nerves after watching Joannie and Alena implode.

    Congrats to Yu Na, Miki and Akiko!!

    ITA!!!!!! Akiko should have at least been ahead of Miki in the free!! I'm happy with Ashley's 4th place . I think she and Akiko were the ones that made a statement tonight. Akiko that she has to be on the Oly team and Ashley that she can deal with pressure and be fearless out there.

    I agree. I'm glad she fought for every landing. It might have been a cautious performance, but she could use a relatively clean program after a mini-meltdown at SA. Good for Yuna.

    Yup, Yuna's skating has grown tentative in the last 2 events. She's simply not attacking her jumps, which actually decrease their success rate. Again, I'm hoping that she's seeing a good sports shrink, but her focus on pre-performance falls seems to indicate she is not. Brian Orser, get thee to a sport shrink's office now!!!

    And she landed her flip! That is the most important. Now she knows she can land it at the Olympics too!

    Yep, Ashley may have just helped her case with the USFS, to be assigned one of the USA's OG spots. And Akiko to get preference over Fumie for a spot...though Akiko vs Yukari might be a tougher call.
