Oops. Next time I'll have to try harder not to be.

And she was never a very elegant skater but her stamina has gone way down. Personally, I think she should quit Morozov...

Mirai deserves to be in first place. A gorgeous skate. Kim Yu Na deserves her placement also. She may or may not land on the podium. I don't think she has probably been training like she did for the Olympics and I don't think she is motivated. I rpefer Mirai's skating to hers any day of the week. Happy Mao seems to be gaining her momentum back.

She only got level 3s on a sit spin and one of her step sequences in Vancouver. Maybe she went back and reworked those. Ahh, I'm going to stop now before I go batty. But yeah, she's a rockstar!

How Mirai's 3-3 wasn't downgraded and Asada's 3a was is completely mind boggling to me... Asada's 3a was well within 1/4 of a turn while Mirai's toeloop was heavily prerotated and underrotated, I thought it was a double until I rewatched it 3 times
