    Miki stepped out on her 3T combo, so she was unable to do a 3-jump combination - that probably cost her big time on the tech marks.

    Miki must have had a bunch of DG's. Her TES score was 7th highest so far. 3 Junior skaters had better TES scores.
    Without her PCS, she'd be slipping further back in this pack, so I guess lucky for her she got her Olympic spot via GPF finish.

    Very nice comeback for Mao. Wonder what her score here would translate to at an ISU event though.

    My only worry is that her technical side is still not as great as it could be. With her abilities and all, she was only about 4 points or so higher than Yukari for TES.

    Ohhh... No second 3A... Sigh... She can fix that by the four continents!!! Great job though!! Now, Akiko need to place higher then Yukari or score around same as Yukari to get the spot! I'm looking at 185+

    Yeah. o__o

    But I've noticed that Miki tends not to do well in Japan. The media frenzy gets to her or something. GPF 09 was kind of a fluke. Lucky for her the next stop is Canada.

    I'm sure plenty of fans are thrilled for her, but I have an issue with a (presumably) winning skate that has no lutz and no salchow in the program.

    Yeah me too... She can't put 3-3 because she has no salchow!! I hope she practice her salchow and 3-3 before the olympics!! Still, I'm so happy for Mao's comeback!

    Me too... her jump repertoire (by that I mean jumps she does frequently in competition, not jumps she could do technically) is not very inspirational right now. I'd still say despite her win (presumably) here, she won't be rivaling Yuna going into Vancouver.

    I'm pretty sure she wasn't planning on doing the 2nd 3A to make sure she does well (to secure a spot on the Olympic team). I think she's planning on going to 4CC to do the full-on program... someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    While I thought the same thing when I saw the jump layout, we'll have to see the actual performance before passing judgment.

    I cracks me up that Yuna-haters say it's ridiculous that Yuna does axel jump three times, and here's Mao doing loop 4 times plus axel three times.

    BUT going back to the Haruka Imai girl I was talking about before... she IS going to be top 6!
