    I know Yuna simply bombed at her sp but I think she deserved more than 60.30. I mean...all of Carolina's jumps were so shaky and even she scored better than Yuna. Oh well.. if it is not the problem with the boots/health, I'm sure Yuna can easily make up 10 points (she will be in the podium for sure it is the matter of color).

    Actualy while I don't think Carolina deserved 4th, I think it would have been fine if Carolina was 6th over Yuna. I think Yuna made too many mistakes (downgraded 3F, level 1 spiral and zero points on the spin). the 60.30 is actually pretty good when you consider that 12 of her 30.08 TES score of those points likely came from her 3-3 alone. Besides the difference is only 2 points. I think Yuna will easily beat Carolina in the LP.

    Seniorita, I love your vivid reports and am thrilled (for both selfish and unselfish reasons!) that you'll get to tell us about the LP. I hope you enjoy every moment of it. You have the gift of drawing me right into the action, and your descriptions make me root for everyone, not just my favorites. I'm sure I'm not alone in this reaction. I was especially pleased to hear about how well Mao and Mirai did. Like you (and the whole arena), I'm shocked at YuNa's meltdown. But she does have the OGM, after all, so if she doesn't make the top of the podium here (or even the podium!), it won't mean anything bad for her career or her reputation. And those of us who love her will still love her!

    Not a surprise at all. She definitely deserves to eat what she wants. Amazing though your breasts grow at 20!
    Breasts are mostly made of fat, so when very skinny girls (like some of our favorite figure skaters :-) ) start to gain weight, their breasts grow too LOL.

    Yes, I thought Yu-na was rather on the pretty side, you know. Thank you for the report I wish I had been there with you... or maybe not. So many ladies bombed tonight. Sarah Meier's fall was a shocker. Her fall was so huge that I actually thought she was crying out of pain more than sadness. Also, Yu-na and Akiko are two of my favorite skaters. I couldn't stand watching them struggle, one after the other. I don't see how my little ticker would take it.

    Actually a lot of Japanese seemed to want to claim her since Mirai has dual citizenship, speaks Japanese ,etc.

    I am so happy for Mirai!! but her score seems to be too low with a 3-3. I am suspecting a downgrade on 3-3.

    Too low with a 3-3? She got a whopping 70 points, judging that she got a 63 at the Olympics with a 3-2, I am almost sure that 3-3 was ratified. Her score was deserved though. It could have been higher but where she is so young with little senior international experience I wasn't that surprised. If I had to guess she got credit for the 3-3 but probably got an ! call for her flutz.

    Because her PCS weren't as high as worlds at the Olympics. She got 26.76 in PCS at the Olympics and she got over 30 here at worlds. Plus she got an edge call at the Olympics. So I am not too surprised that Mirai got over 70.

    I'm not sure she got it ratified. Her TES in Vancouver was 37 and 40 today. She also got the edge call in Vancouver.

    Er... what ks777 said.

    Yuna said she had trouble with getting enough motivation for these Worlds. I hope her 10.10 point deficit renews this motivation to possibly end her career on a high note.

    Why else would her TES go up by 3 then? I think she probably got 3lz-3t ratified with -GOEs either for an edge call or the somewhat scratchy landing. I know Mirai missed levels and got lvl 2 on her spiral sequence and footwork in her LP in Vancouver but in the SP I think she got all of her levels (not quite sure though). If she managed to get 70 without having the 3-3 ratified though, that's even more promising, because it suggests that Mirai could potentially beat Mao and be very very close to Yuna with a solid 3lz-3t in the SP . Way to go Mirai! I guess we'll know when the protocols come out, but considering that no one confirmed the 3-3 was downgraded like they did with Mao's 3a, I assume it stood. Either way Mirai is a rockstar !

    I have a fear that we can see another meltdown from Yuna in the LP.
    Frankly 10 point is not a big margin for Yuna to overcome.. she can beat any other competitors even in such a tough situation.
    But after Olympics she made no preparation for the Worlds and lost every motivation for it.
    I think it's too late to refresh herself now.

    Just hope she get enough rest after Worlds.
    Wish I can see Yuna in the competitions next year.

    I've been hearing that her 3-3 was slightly UR. I think it's probably the second triple~~ maybe she only got neg GOE for it though. But if she didn't get her 3-3 ratified and missed some levels and still got 70, then I say her score was pretty generous.
