    Ladies' SP

    Here's the starting order.

    I can't believe Miki is the last one!

    Mirai skates early, but Flatt is in there at the end.
    Hoping they both skate clean and make the top 10.

    Why is that bad? Even if Mao is clean Yuna shouldn't have anything to worry about. And if Mao isn't clean then Yuna should be even more confident.

    I'm hoping Mirai's early placement doesn't hurt her chances of getting a good score. But in a way, it could be good because she will stand out more among her competitors.

    I only recognize 11 skaters by name.

    I don't think start order matters much anymore since it's based on points.

    Miki's position is unfortunate because of her fragile mind though.

    Mao is the most capable SP skater after YuNa, and it could make YuNa nervous to go after a potentially clean Mao, ratified 3A and all.

    Sigh.

    Actually, I think Miki is in the best position. Mao and Yuna back to back is too nervewrecking. I'll be soooo nervous watching them!

    Wow interesting draw! I do hope JoRo stays around and skate this for her late mother. I remember speed skater Dan Jansen competed hours after his sister's death back in 88.

    Yeah well, hasn't she skated after Mao before? Plus Yuna already has so much pressure on her, she might not even notice Mao.

    What? are we talking about same mao? I think mao is the most capable LP skater, not SP. Yuna has skated before mao twice last year (4cc and teb, i believe?). we know what the results were. Yuna herself said she will be happy as long as she isn't the very last one to skate. I don't think this is bad at all.

    I hope everyone gives clean performances. It'd be sad if the event comes down to Kim vs. Kim yet again. But thinking about it again, if everyone performs at their best it'll be Kim v. Kim anyway? Does anyone have a chance against Kim when Kim performs clean?

    Great draw for Rachael Flatt. Not so good for Mirai, but she is not a medal contender, so it's OK.

    Yu na skates right after Mao. That should be interesting. I hope Mao skates clean and gets full credit for her 3A. Otherwise it may not be so interesting.

    Skating last (Miki) can be a positive thing in the SP because she is not off the ice for very long after the warmup. In the LP it could affect a skater negatively.

    Where it's a points-based system I think it should be ok. Mirai might suffer a little in the PCS department but we saw that with the young skaters in the men's competition too. If she skates well she should get a good score - apart from a few of the favorites in the men's competition the scoring seemed pretty fair. The other thing is that in comparison to the skaters in her group Mirai could really stand out which could be to her advantage in terms of scores.
