    She's disappointed because she didn't do her best in the LP. She's pretty hard on herself for that. One time she even cried when she won a competition but didn't do her best.

    Wow, bet those who think Mao's triple axels should be much bigger point getters will really blow their tops when they see Mirai, who didn't even do a triple-triple (she did her 3-2-2 and 2-3, right?), got higher TES than Mao ... Hmm about Lepisto's scores .. great the top flight ALL did so well ... huge admiration for Joannie for her courage and class ... glad for Miki for a good skate ... great competition!

    Congratulations to Yuna, Mao, and Joannie!

    She's older than Nagasu and her speed, spins, spirals are of comparable quality. She's more mature and if she gets half a point for that so be it.

    MIRAI GOT NO DOWNGRADES BOO YA! I'm the most proud of Joannie and Mirai, Joannie for all she's been through and Mirai for staying strong after 3 standing ovations and monster scores back to back to back. Yuna and Mao too, they made their country proud.

    I guess Carolina and Elene get to be the Joubert and Verner of the ladies. Sad for them, but overall a great night of skating! I agree with the placements, some of the scores shocked me but w/e. Ahh!

    Goodness, he said that was his opinion. No need to jump on the guy!

    The Torino ones I liked but later I thought it was a very primitive solution actually- after I had visited a hardware store and seen metal details of that shape on hole size proportion... Why are they pushing for some innovative medal design in? Isn't it just the winter games with this craze? I don't remember the 08 summer games medals being anything other than round and of average size...

    Mao improved her triple axels to get them all ratified under the harshest tech specialist there is. And, if I'm not mistaken, she improved one of her pancake spins (I notice that Mao keeps on improving little things in her skating throughout the years, no small feat when you're at her level). I will fight anybody who says Mao is a disappointment.

    But, seriously...It's like a European lady just HAS to be near the top, no matter how they actually skate. I like Lepisto to an extent, but come on, she didn't outskate Mirai in that LP. She always pops at least one jump.

    Mao popped a jump and 2footed another and then had three turns out of it into the combination. She lost up to 10 points in TES with those mistakes, plus spins are a part of TES and Mirai's IMO are even better than Mao's. Clean Mao would have had significantly higher TES than Mirai.
