    Yuna can still win the freeskate, but perhaps still finnish second. Think mao might pull it out, Mirai i would imagine medallng though most likely bronze but will be interesting. Laura looked very happy in her interview.

    So the Mao vs Yuna now become Yuna vs Mirai? :sheesh: Let's just be happy for Mirai for doing a great job today. Btw, I think Mirai looks adorable.

    Yuna said it was her falult and she'll fight for the lp. Brian said it was not boots or anything else, she just lost focus. If answering questions = making excuses for you, then I can't say more. It's not like Yuna called a press conference and made excuses for her mistakes.

    Laura and Mirai were my two favorites. Too bad Laura messed up her 2A - otherwise I thought her skating was just so beautiful.

    Hecken - Excellent and to that foreboding music of Prokoviev's R&J
    Helgesen - Neat skater with good technique
    Markarova - Very nicely done, and a surprise for me.
    Mao - Best I've seen her this season. she made that repetitive waltz bearable.
    Lapisto - With such fluidity she belongs in a ballet company
    Mirai - she confirmed that Vancouver was not a fluke. Go girl!
    Yuna - So lethargic to day. Hopes she snaps out of it for the LP
    Rachael - good show and sooooo underscored
    Leonova - Other than the mishap, she was very musical.

    IMO, all these skaters are vulnerable (except Mirai) and present places can easily be changed.

    I have spoken.
    Halleluah!

    Oh. I wasn't aware of that at all. Thanks, Johnnnn. I just thought that if she was making lace excuses, it would be weird. Just wondering. No antagonism.

    Well, my dream podium was Mao, Mirai and Rachael, in any order.I should be happy at least two of them are up there. I just want US to get 3 spots because I know they have great young skaters coming up plus Mirai and Rachael.

    Congratulations to Mirai... And Mao, as she got more point than Yuna and that's what she wanted to do, I guess

    Yuna Kim... Yes, she was kind of not good. She got the points she deserved, as a fan of Yuna, I have no objections at all. She doesn't have to prove anything. It looks like she did less training than she usually does and that's the reason behind it. But she deserved a good rest after what she did at the Olympics and those horrible 2 days after they ended.

    So if some of you were saying that Mirai have no chances, then you got it Maybe she will become the World champion tomorrow.
    She really skated incredibly good. I don't think that she is better than Yuna at her age, but she looks like she is the future, at least in USA. So, you guys, must be happy

    It was a surprising competition and very interesting.

    I'm so mad at myself, I missed Mao!! Well, I won't miss the Long Program. She must've skated good though, she's in second. Go Mirai!!!! She's so adorable and a wonderful skater. Her spirals are to die for, and much better than Yuna's.

    Mirai looks just as beautiful as Yuna does.

    Agreed. Wow, I can't believe that someone thinks Mirai has better footwork and speed than Yuna!!! I agree that Mirai's spins are beautiful, but spins are spins. To be honest, Zhang's spins are better than Mirai's and she's not considered as a top skater. Mirai cheats on her jumps and even Tara said so. I do love Mirai, but she's got a lot to work on.

    Well it's a personal preference but....... I can't possibly agree with that. Let's stop talking about looks. I feel bad starting this lol
