    Note that the PCS scores are multiplied, and they give you the factored total, not the standardized one (as done in international events).

    A beauty to behold it was. OMG! Joannie! This is the kind of performance I've been waiting for since the debut of this program! If she skates like that at a certain competition in Febuary, the Pacific Coliseum is going to explode!!!!

    Thanks for the link!
    Even though that video didn't really run smoothly on my computer, I could see Joannie did really well! Congratulations, Joannie!!
    It was just like watching Joannie from last season. Solid, confident Joannie! Wow.

    I liked Joannie's program ever since she skated that really well at Japan Open at the start of the season and I'm really glad she topped that one with her skate at nationals. That was such an AMAZING skate!!!

    Yes, the scoring at this nationals was very inflated, but honestly, if Yu na can score ~134 in the long with only 5 triples, repeating the lowest scoring one (toe), and not even attempting a flip or loop, I don't see why Joannie can't score ~140 with a seven triple program that repeats Salchow as opposed to Toe-loop, where all types of triples are attempted and successfully landed. And Yu na, like it or not, is somewhat vulnerable to an edge calle on her flip, while Joannie never gets any edge calls. I have been watching figure skating competitions for years, and Joannie has some of the cleanest, most proper technique on her jumps that I have seen. Plus, they are HUGE. Easily deserving of a +2. It is difficult to appreciate just how good her jumps are until you see them in person. That triple loop she did in the long was probably the best I have ever seen from a lady skater. She doesn't have the best spins or spirals, but then neither does Yu na. I know this makes me sound like a Joannie uber, but I'm not. I am just amazed by the quality she displayed yesterday. What she does not have is Yu na's nerves, but she did say that she was very nervous before the long yesterday so...

    It's really anyone's game in Vancouver. What looked to be a one-horse race suddenly doesn't look so certain. Joannie has proved she can deliver the goods. If she skates clean, she can win. If Yu na skates clean, she can win. If Mao skates clean, she can win. If Miki skates clean, she can win. I also have a feeling that the short program will be a lot closer in terms of scores than it has been so far. I can't seen Yu na having a 15 point lead going into the long. I think the judges, if they have the chance based on the performances, are going to make sure everything is decided by the long, not the short. I, for one, am REALLY looking forward to Vancouver!!!

    But Yuna usually builds a good lead from her short, and she rarely makes mistakes in her short which allows her the room to make mistakes in LP and still be able to win if others do not skate perfect. The SP is actually very important for determining the winner nowadays. So if Joannie wants to give Yuna a run of her money, then she can't afford to fall in her short at the Olympics. I also hope Mao does not make silly mistakes in her SP, as she is prone to in the past. I also wish for a fierce competition in Vancouver

    That is true, but do not foget Joannie secured her silver in LA with a flawless SP, because she was she wasn't error free in the LP there, so it was the other way around. So, in theory she could do both, but she never had a clean back to back skate in both. that is the bug headache, do you see that happening in the pressure cooker in Vancouver?I hope it does, but I would not bet on it.

    Very good analysis. Could not agree more. I think the skater who attempted all 5 triples and no edge call should get bonus points.

    For starters, I'm a She.

    Second...Colour me confused too, as that was not the intent of my post at all. Just to point out how frustrating it is to be a fan of athletes from other countries when you say you are in Real Life. Frankly, I actually couldn't understand why on a Figure Skating Message Board that has fans posting from all over the World someone would say, "I'm not Canadian, but I'm a fan of Joannie's...", as isn't that the point of the board? For us to talk about *all* of our favourites?

    Oh well...I've had worst things said to me over the years and that doesn't even come close.

    After finally getting to see all of Cynthia's LP last night....WOW!!! Even w/the bobbles, it's *still* huge step up from SC. I was in tears afterwards and am so very, very happy for her she's getting to live her Olympic Dream after all she's been through!!

    Hi guysl

    I'm looking for the name of the tango type music that Diane Szmiett skated to, I believe in her long program? If anyone recalls this or knows where I can find a video/this info it'd be great.

    Many thanks in advance!
