That 3T in the 2Axel-3Toe will definitely be downgraded.
This time it actually deserves to be downgraded.
A very good performance from Yu-Na, though!
I would personally place Akiko higher, but would have Yu-Na first overall considering the SP.
It's highest GPF placer I think. So that depends on Miki.
Kim seems very tense tonight. Decent skate, but certainly not her best.
I'm not getting her LP music ... must be my hatred for "colour" pieces.
What a gutsy performance. Love the simple and refined program. Lots of love from Japanese fans before she started, which was nice to see/hear.
She did two-footed the 3T but the 3F looks good!
Please Miki.... please please please!!!!
Sigh...I hate to say this, but Miki really looks horrible in that dress...
I missed Miki's first jump but, unless it was a 3-3, Yu-Na has won.
i would die just to skate in front of that home crowd....
Edited because I'm completely wrong and delighted to be so. :D Congrats to Yu Na, who continues to be my favorite female skater. I really hope the potential downgrades don't make her second guess her 3toes too much, because I believe most tech callers would ratify them if she keeps landing them the way she used to.

Miki has grown so much as a skater- She used to be a skater who would BOMB under pressure. She skated her heart out tonight. And each jump was huge!
It's interesting both Morozov's pupils tonight opted for conservative jumping strategies... I personally would love to have seen 3/3 and 2-3.
Akiko got held down in PCS--I think her FS should have been higher than Yu-na's. Though after SP, 2nd. With Miki's scores to go.
