    I am kinda smiling after reading every post on this thread so far, because everyone's treating MikiAndoFan#1 as if she is Miki herself So cute! I really do hope she does well after all she's endured after Torino. I don't even really care about the medal (although it'll be super nice bonus) - what's important is that Miki puts out the kind of performance that she can be happy about and proud of at the end of the day. SP wasn't that, so I really hope LP does it for her!

    So does Mao no longer do 3/3 combos because they were getting DG'd or because she just can't do them at all?

    She can still do them (she does in practices) but it's not part of her layout this season.

    I just hope that if Joannie is able to win a medal that eventually she will be able to look at it without it being tarnished by the memory of what happend at these games.

    She can't risk doing them because of the downgrades.

    More likely, she'll look at it and be reminded of the love and support she got from Canadians and people all around the world at the most difficult time in her life. Sappy but hopefully true.

    I like the LP skating order. I am glad Joanne will skate after Miki/Yuna/Mao because no matter where these three end up, I will ball my eyes out watching Joanne and her skate will put everything in proper perspective. We will root for her and she will make us all realize how much we love skating and what these olympians are made of. This is a beautiful sport but a mere sport, and that the most important thing life is family and people around you. Then Mirai will bop (in a good way) around the ice with her mega smile and mesmerizing spins and spirals and lift our heavy heart from Joanne. And we don't have to worry about the curse of last spot for Ladies. Can't wait.

    If we can create the perfect skater out of the Final Flight, it would be like this:
    Rachael's consistency
    Miki's guts
    Yuna's X-factor
    Mao's grace
    Joannie's heart
    Mirai's spunkiness

    Yeah, I agree but perhaps this would not happen because she did not plan it this season.

    I will need a bone saw, some chloroform and a ride to Vancouver.

    I think the only way Mao can win gold now is for Yuna to make 2 large mistakes (falling on two jumps) and for Mao to skate a FLAWLESS program with BOTH triple axels fully rotated.

    My prediction for LP:

    Yu-na will skate a clean program but receive a negative GOE on one of her jumps (probably the salchow) because of a shaky landing.
    Mao will land both of her triple axels but receive a downgrade on the second one.
    Yu-na beats Mao by 6.57 points overall and wins the OGM.
    Joannie skates an outstanding LP and receives the bronze.

    Any takes?

    I don't think Miki should be counted out at all, especially since she's not going last this time.

    6.57 points....specific much? That very well could be how it turns out but I think Miki will come out fighting with a vengeance to land on that podium and I also think Rachael and Mirai will dazzle us and give it their all! I can also see Akiko having another great LP and pulling up higher into the rankings. Regardless of the result it will be an amazing, memorable night of skating! Good luck to all ladies!
