    Ladies Practice Reports

    Anybody knows what's happening with the ladies?

    Kim had a practice at 7am this morning, as did Akiko. Mao and Ando missed their session.

    YAY! A thread that's not about the men!

    Hopefully the ladies' champion will be undisputed, have amazing technical ability AND artistry to boot.

    Yeah, I agree! We heard enough about Plushy not winning the gold...

    Mao arrived in Vancouver this morning. She seems so happy and excited for the Olympics! Looks really enthusiastic!
    I'm excited to see Mao skate and also Miki. Mirai and Akiko will be exciting to watch too!! And go Yu-Na!! I hope they all do their best and there won't be any of those judge disagreement like in the mens!!

    I highly doubt that'll happen. In that case, I will stay away from the boards for at least three days and searching for Youtube figure skating videos for about six months.

    Yeah, both Mao VS Yu-Na fans are both awful to each other!!

    Yu-Na seems happy in Vancouver.

    Yu-Na arriving in Vancouver. I hope she skates well, and hopefully we'll be able to see her smile! I hope no one pressurize her to win the gold. Olympics is a '' game '' and it's about athletes enjoying themselves!

    Go, GO YU-NA!!

    Lol, yeah, I suppose it's too much to ask because even if the champion does clean programs, there'll always be talk about unfair PCS, etc. etc. by the Yunatics, Mao-Bots, etc. :help: :help: :help:

    I know! It's so bad... Videos like Yu-Na's 3-3 downgrade is FAIR, Mao's triple axel is 1.75 turns, Yu-Na got plastic surgery, Mao is [color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color], Yu-Na eat dogs, Mao eat whales etc.

    I really hope they stop...

    It will be exciting event though!! I can't wait!

    Actually the board may implode after the dance and we may not even have a lady issue as they'll be collecting our pieces all over the place

    Yuna did 3flip-3toeloop in the practice. it looked real nice. I wonder if 3f-3t is her back-up plan? Can anybody elaborate? I saw few nice second triple toeloops and spins looked faster than before.

    A pity because the girls themselves have been nothing but gracious to one another.

    Her 3f-3t is probably her backup plan if she doesn't land her lutz properly. And it's a damn good back-up plan if you ask me.

    Where can I see some videos of her practice?

    I doubt she needs a back up plan... Maybe her lutz became inconsistent but her flip became so consistent or maybe they're both so consistent that she wants to have a back up plan just to score 70+ in her SP for definite!!

    GO, Yu-NA!!
    Is Mao practicing yet? I heard she just arrived in Vancouver! Mao said her triple axel is very consistent and checked her rotation with an Olympus video camera ( advertising ) back in her home rink with her back-up coach lol

    This will be one great event! Mirai landed her 3Lz+3T just before Olympics, Miki is practicing her 3Lz+3Lo and is looking dead serious with Morisov... I watched a video on Youtube and Carolina landed 3F+3T at the Europeans and Rachel Flatt landed that too!! It will be amazing short program with full of triple triples!!

    Very nice, but in competition, she can't do more than three jumps in a combination. Ahahah. She can do it for fun though.
