    Ok, I can't help myself.
    HOW the heck did Miki get higher PCS scores than Mirai?
    Dark Eyes, you got me. At least Ando didn't get a medal. She's been seriously overmarked in PCS for quite some time now.

    Big Michelle fan but in the U.S there won't be much hoopla but in Korea she's going to probably be remember as the greatest ever. For me no one seems to past Michelle in greatness...not yet anyway. I wonder how I would feel if Yuna had great spins and spirals. She has everything else though.

    Get over it.
    How many world titles does Yuna have. Yuna has scoring records (which really isn't a valid argument because Kwan did a bulk of her skating under the old system), Kwan has the championships. You can't argue this one, I don't care what jumps Kwan did or didn't do. Kwan has the championships to back her Yuna doesn't.

    Michelle has eternal place in the history and she was the best. But now the new time has come. The old heroes will not fade if the new ones appear. Now that's just my opinion.

    And I'll still say it - Yuna Kim, the best, ever.
    Then there was no need to bring Michelle into the conversation, Daniel5555.

    This is Yuna's night. It was unnecessary to bring Michelle into it.

    It turned out basically how I expected. I thought Yu-na was overscored...sorry but I just do and I think her skating style seems calculated...doesn't mean she's not a great skater..that's just how she comes across to me as a viewer. I have to wonder what sort of precedent that type of scoring will set for the future. I was disappointed that Mao didn't score higher but happy she landed her triple axels. I was really glad Joannie got her medal...what heart and determination she skated with. Sooo happy for Mirai...she has so much musicality and what a great future. Poor Rachael. I thought her posture looked poor tonight and sloppy on some of the spins. She looked like she was lacking some energy too. I haven't seen Lepisto yet so can't comment. Poor Miki :( I know she has to be so disappointed.

    The exact same finish as Sasha at her first Olympics in 2002. Take that, Sasha "I think the U.S. women are hit and miss" Cohen! And with no falls either!

    That is one perfect podium. No controversies, all fair and square. Congrats to all ladies medalists!

    Too bad Miki's Olympic dream didn't come true, but on the other hand she'll always have her World title.
    Elene, next time (Worlds) better!

    p.s Mao, you probably would not of beat Yuna even if you skated clean
    ITA, 3 clean 3A (2 in combo) in Olympics - any other girl would have been ecstatic. she should learn a thing or two from Daisuke, the guy is so content with his much deserved bronze.

    Tonight was Yuna's night. Let her have it.
    Absolutely beautiful skating from Yuna tonight. One of the best programs in Olympic history

    This is the best damn Olympics ladies figure skating competition in terms of the top 4 skaters ever. The winner skated two monstrously difficult programs back to back with ease and even a sense of humor. The silver medalist landed 3 triple axels! The bronze medalist landed 7 ratified triples, the most out of anybody in the free. And Ms. 4th place skated a perfect short followed by a perfect long to come in 4th at the Olympics despite having a dismal season internationally prior to this. We have got to do this again.
