    That is all. Sasha does everything better than Yu-na except some jumps. And figure skating is not all about jumps. You all know that. You can laugh at Sasha fan like us all you want.
    BTW Silverlake22 is the one who brought up Yu-na to this thread. It seems Silverlake is a very entusiastic fan of Yu-na.
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SASHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm so excited I'll lock myself in my office and watch the SP this evening (Sydney time) while pretending to work!

    So what levels and GOEs do you think her non jump elemets will get, taking into account all the bullet points? I mean her edging was considered her weakness, right? Despite her suberb lines, charisma, musicality, etc.?

    You know what surprised me about her skating now? The jumps I have seen her do seem more secure now than they were back in 2006, for some reason. Maybe it's because I haven't seen her skating in awhile, but they seem more comfortable (even a bit higher - though I can't tell from the online videos too well). Her SPEED is remarkable too, especially because I have been moaning and groaning about skaters being slow this season!

    Also, her 3-3 attempt seemed very real, from what I've seen. Maybe she'll be adventurous and throw that in somewhere.

    HIKKI, I am soooooooooooo excited, too. I hope she will execute all the elements as well as she always do. Of course she should get +10GOE on everything!!!

    No, not with regard to the 3/3, because when she has been it hasn't worked out. Plus, she and Mr. Nick (and Lori Nichol) are very COP-savvy. So they haven't needed to rely on the 3/3.

    ETA: OTOH, skating people reported seeing her do 3/3's months ago before she even announced her return. So maybe this is the "surprise" Mr. Nicks mentioned? Who knows??

    Nerves, fear, uncertainty - it's all just part of the magic of Sasha! Isn't it great to have her back?!? (Who cares about a few bitten nails???)

    You might want to have a Pepto Bismol (TM) handy, just in case.

    Practicing now...Sylvia reports on twitter that she warmed up singles, 2a, 3s, then did a back charlotte into a 3s-2t-2t, 3f-2t, hung on to 3z. In her run through, did 3z-2t, fell on 3 loop, 3flip. Didn't really skate the LP, skated through most of the jumps/spins and then did FW to faster piano section.

    My guess based on what Sasha practiced, her jump layout will include: 3z/2, 3f/2t, 3fl, 3lp, 3s, 3s/2/t2t, and 2ax.

    She should play it safe and do the triple toe combo instead of the flip combo. She just needs to stay verticle.

    Actually Sasha needs to make the US team before anyone can talk about Yuna. BTW, what happen to all the claims from some Sasha fans over the years that if she stands up no one can beat her. Evidently a little 16 y/o call Nagasu beat a Sasha who stood up.

    Yup , and she deserved to be ahead too. Although I wouldn't call Mirai "little" anymore, especially because Sasha is actually the size of a 12 year old. Mirai's awesome, loved the little dance she did after the SP

    Bring it in the FS Mirai, show them the future has arrived
