Yu-Na is sandwiched by Japanese ladies again.. lol
Let's see how Mao does after Yu-Na this time.
Good luck to all skaters. Hope everyone does a clean program!
Wow..this time Yuna first and then Mao.
All I pray is everyone to skate their best and not have an epic meltdown of Hubert proportions!
I have a funny feeling that whatever happens thursday night, a lot of people will still be very unhappy!

I'm sad for Rochette skating near the end of her flight, because as someone else mentioned in another thread, it will give her more time to get upset between the warm up and the program. Hopefully that doesn't happen though.
Let me say this: Gedevanishvelli was robbed. I watched everyone's SP performance from start to finish via Eurosport. She deserved to be in the final 6. Actually, she deserved to be in the 4th place ahead of Nagasu, Flatt, and Ando. If we recall that Elene also finished top 6 in Torino, it's truly an incredible achievement.
Waiting for on-ice perfection.
Me too. Perhaps even more than they were after the men's LP, if, that is, that's even possible

I hope the standings now in the short program is the podium we're gonna get. =|
Kim goes before Mao so the order of the SP for them is reversed. Mao laid down the challenge today and Kim responded magnificently. If Kim lays down the challenge, and Mao responds accordingly, we could be in for a real treat. In some ways, both a privilege to witness two great talents who, had they been from separate times, could have been two individual OGM winners.
And what about Joannie... she is such a lovely girl. I want her to get bronze, or if Kim runs away with it, battle Mao for the silver. I feel bad that there are only three spots on the podium. My other favourite Miki maybe can't make it!

I hoped Yu-Na, Joannie and Miki take the podium, but Mao's SP was wonderful, I have to admit it. Perhaps the best ever I've seen from her.
This time Mao skates after Yu-Na! I guess Yu-Na will bring a briliant performance Thursday night, pressuring Mao just as Mao herself did to Yu-Na in the SP. Good for Yu-Na, since she said she does not favor being the last on ice(even though she had to in most Grand Prix series).
Also interesting to watch Mirai skating last. Can she overcome the burden of the last place and all the emotions right after Joannie?
Wish the best of luck to all skaters, and especially to Joannie. She is so strong.
Prediction here for Gold
If Mao and Yuna skate their best, I believe the winner will be based on the Music. JMO
Didn't really want Joannie to have to go after Mao or Yu na kim :/
I agree it's really tough.

Regardless of what happens, Joannie will receive a standing-O, and though I can't speak for everyone, I think many of us will cheer for her, including yours truly.
"Hold an edge and look sexy!"
Joannie has skated directly after Mao many times in competition: 2008 TEB LP, 2009 4CC LP, 2009 Worlds LP, and now, this Olympics LP. I think she's used to being in that position.
