Mao did a clever upbeat Hungarian Dance in 2007, and she won with it. Imo, she has not had the experience of life's sadness to perform Bells. These Ladies in figure skating lead a sheltered life, and can not be expected to grasp the mood of the music. Nevertheless, I believe the competition will be based on the Technical. One mistake by either Yuna or Mao gives the opponent a big advantage. If there are no mistakes by either skater, the Boards will be flooded with 'wuzz robbd'.
Hoping to see that little Australian Lady skate again.
I hope Cheltzie Lee has the skate of her life! LOL She trains at a rink not too far from where I live, and today my aunt was talking her and the kids going to ice skating lessons.
I think Yu Na will win this but not with an amazing performance. I think she botch the flip or something, but skate okay in the rest of her program. I have a feeling Mao will really shine but will not be enough to get gold. She has a 5 point disadvantage, PCS which are lower and a hell of a lot to do to land two 3A. I think Joannie will have a meltdown today. She probably saw the bigger picture about her mom's death which paradoxically helps. Now that the jb has to be done I think she might not do it. In this case Miki might sneak into the bronze position.
An all asian podium is a real possibility.
My best wishes to Cheltzie, Ksenia, Min-Jung and all the young ladies.
They are a joy to watch.
Can please someone pm me the hours of last group in Vancouver time?
I cant afford stay awake for all so I want to wake up for the last, and it has been already ten pages here, at first I thought they have started to skate already
LOL Seniorita, i got worried too and thought oh no did i get the times mixed up and they already started? I also would love to have the time of the groups and skater's posted. Not found it myself yet.
Go to this page and choose the time shedule for the ladies free skate.

Well Rachael will start at 11:06pm EST (that's 8:06pm PST) and Mirai ends at 11:53pm EST (8:53pm). In 13 hours, we'll have a winner!
Too bad I can't stay home tonite and have to watch the first 3 flights from work. I'm not even sure if I'll make it for Rachael on time because of the snow. My co-worker said he'll be at work early so I can catch the final 2 flights (he understands my figure skating love).
Plus the bar will have the USA vs. Canada game so all isn't lost today at work!

This late night skating is killing me! LOL I was grateful they took a day off yesterday so I could get to bed at a decent time. I'm sure I'll be a zombie tomorrow.Well Rachael will start at 11:06pm EST (that's 8:06pm PST) and Mirai ends at 11:53pm EST (8:53pm). In 13 hours, we'll have a winner!
I really hope Miki rocks it tonight, but I do find that her weight loss has maybe hurt more than helped her. She looks so thin now and her jumps aren't as huge as usual - please eat Miki! I think she might go all out tonight though and may sneak onto that podium.
Also, didn't Joannie and Miki beat Mao with two ratified 3a's in the LP at worlds last year? Maybe Mao only did one...I don't quite remember
