    That bouquet on her chest looks like exploded roast beef. It puts to mind gunshot victims in the morgue.
    You know, there are nice ways to say you don't like a costume :sheesh:
    I actually think it's very pretty...when I see a bunch of pink and red flowers, I don't automatically think murder.

    Thankyou - Akiko

    I get so tired of the "CoP argument" that there is something wrong with Akiko's skating. I think she is just terrific and see faults with so many skater's that are getting placed above her.

    Her jumps are amomgst the cleanest with the best air positions I have seen this season. Her musicality and steps are so superior it is embarrassing for me to say I am a skating fan when I see how she is scored. Give me a break gkelly and others who want to make up excuses for the judges. It is about the fact that the other girls have BIG sponsers.........

    It's not like we are blind and can't see what an absolutely charming skater she is!!

    I thought her SP was fantastic!!

    Akiko is barely even a point out of second....I do not think there was any biased judging going on here.

    perfect captions. I love how Fumie is considered a granny at 28, she still looks like she's 16!

    I expect Kanako will pull up a slot or two tomorrow in the free, those youngins seem to have energy and stamina unmatched by their elder competitors. I bet she will finish ahead of Yukari and Fumie in the FS, maybe even Akiko or Miki or Mao if they mess up and she doesn't. She still has junior PCS though so maybe not.

    The slo-mo replay aired on Fuji-TV looked like they downgraded on prerotation, Mao's blade turned almost 180 degrees.... so with the rule this year, it's not unthinkable.

    Techs never "add" prerotation and short landing together, AFAIK.

    She said that her first 3Lz landed without enough speed so she had to instantly decide to add 2Lo instead.

    What rule is this? Do you have a link or more information on it I can read up on? If they're being strict with the prerotation, I don't see how Mao will ever have another 3axel ratified (same with Lysacek, but he seems to get away with it).

    One thing to remember is that the technical panel is supposed to review the takeoff of any suspected pre-rotated jumps at regular replay speed, not in slo-mo.

    Akiko>>>Yukari

    I really hope she gets the marks she deserves tomorrow and gets that Olympic spot! For some reason I am not that impressed by Yukari's skating, she has a nice donut spin and is graceful but I prefer Fumie's skating to her's. And Akiko is just AMAZING

    That's what i have been thinking too. Lysacek does the same takeoff as Mao or from what I see. Does he just get around more than Mao before he lands? Oh well.. Hope Mao gets her 3axel ratified in the long. Fighting Mao!!

    I am kind of surprised to see Akiko and Yukari get PCS that are comparable to Mao and Miki. This is different from international comps. I am glad that Akiko got decent PCS for a performance from the heart. Yukari looked a bit cautious and I am a bit surprised that she placed higher than Miki. I wonder if Miki's already having the spot affecting the scoring (i.e., she does not need to win). Mao had DG and Yukari had ! but still placed higher than Miki.
