    If you wonder why we don't see 6-triple programs often...compare the old and new rules.

    OLD 6.0... The best strategy was to execute 7 jumping passes clean...plus...some facinating moves
    that would impress the judges and audience.

    NEW COP...Skaters must try their best...not only jumps but also spins, spirals and step sequence.
    cop consists of 7 jump passes, 3 spins, a spirals and a step sequence.

    Skaters must spin their brain while perfoming...counting revolutions for the spins and counting seconds
    for each of their spirals position for more points.

    It is extremely difficult for a skater to concentrate to all 12 elements and perform flawless.
    I didn't see any perfect programs other than Yuna's Olympic performance under the COP RULE.

    I understand your admiration of YuNa, Nadine, and I share it, but I don't think we can slight Mao, especially in terms of on-ice personality. She's a wonderful skating actress, and her jumps are just, as Kurt Browning once said, on vacation. I'm just saying.

    Myself, I'm thrilled that we have two great lady skaters to enjoy in the present, rather than sometime in the misty past. My fingers are crossed for YuNa to surface at Worlds still at her peak, and for Mao to recover her jumps and join YuNa in their splendid rivalry.

    Interesting, I never thought of Mao as an actress. I felt Peggy Flemming description was spot on when she said Mao uses her body as an instrument. Rather than through her face, as an actress usually does, Mao expresses her emotions through the whole body.

    Compare these 2 olympic masterpieces...
    You'll realize...you can win the gold with 9 jumps(instead of 11), 3 easy spins and some breathing room...in 1998 under 6.0 rules.

    Thanks for reminding me of that quote, Miki88. It's a lovely one! I have to say, I think of an actress as using not just her face but her body and movement as well. But you and I can agree that she's extremely expressive and musical. Lucky us!

    I admire those who turn Yuna's thread into another skater's thread eloquently.

    ^ Brian, Olympia will sometimes bring up YuNa in threads where she wasn't being discussed...she's just an equal-opportunity complimenter.

    Thanks, Prettykeys. It's true; and it's especially true for both of these skaters, who are pure gold no matter the color of their medals. Neither of these splendid ladies is ever diminished by a compliment given to the other. For the record, I can't wait to see YuNa skate her new programs this season.

    Olympia, I think that's what makes figure skating awesome. It's not a race, where you can directly compare athletes and declare one person unequivocally "the best." In something like racing, whoever was the fastest may lay claim to being the best. On the other hand, great figure skaters aren't all alike. There is room to for individual focus on various aspects of it - jumps, spins, blade control, flexibility, carriage and overall body awareness, personality, etc. Figure skaters can focus on any combination of these things.

    Since CoP, there is a scoring system, but we all know that the scoring rules and standards have changed over time and that the relative weights of different elements have changed, and there are many aspects of it that remain unscored.

    So, I agree with you completely--complimenting one skater for his/her particular strengths doesn't necessarily diminish the wonderful qualities of another skater.

    Joannie Rochette (again): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17uTwCAUtrw This was right after the rule change to cop.
    Miki Ando (again): http://www.isuresults.com/results/gp..._FS_Scores.pdf
    It is sad...under 6.0 she might have tried 3Lz+3z

    Joannie and Miki are in the same class skaters.
    When they are on...really on.

    Joannie beat Yuna once at skate canada in 2006...GOLD:Joannie , SILVER:Fumie , BRONZE:Yuna
    Miki beat Yuna once at Tokyo Worlds in 2007........GOLD:Miki , SILVER:Mao , BRONZE:Yuna
    I really loved Yuna's expression on her face right after the free program...GENUINELY DISAPPOINTED but NO CRYING...afterTRYING HER BEST with BACK INJURY.

    I've just read a news article saying Yuna's Galaxy tab commercial theme song "Super Girl" is for sale! The article also mentioned all profits derived from its sale will be used for furthering public benefits.
