    But the other persosn said her LP had MANY failures.

    So I was just curious as to what he saw.

    I saw the popped 2A & fall on 3S.

    Amano, along with the assistant tech specialist are known for DG loving. Remember, it alwasy takes two to tango on an ISU Technical Panel. That combination certainly creates an environment for that and we kind of knew this already coming in to this competition, nothing surprising here. Asada won the World with only one ratified Triple Axel attempt, sad but true.

No sound program should ever have that many jumping passes front loaded one after another. No wonder, she got killed on the PCS and rightfully so. Yet, all Johnny Weir can talk about her is as though she is the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously, no. She got the jumps all right. As far as the program is concerned, lots of junior skaters know more about choregraphy than she does.
    Yeah, I felt that as I was watching her program. And a lack of smoothness and polish. Laura Lepisto may have done a whole bunch of double jumps, but she did them with class and great posture. I've come to appreciate Laura's ability. I think she will be a force to be reckoned with if she stops doubling jumps.

    I mean, I see why there would be a lot of Japanese members. Japanese singles skating rocks: Midori Ito, Yuka Sato, Takeshi Honda, Daisuke Takahashi, Mao Asada, Miki Ando, Yukari Nakano, Takehiko Kozuka, Akiko Suzuki, Fumie Suguri, etc. How many wonderful skaters does this nation have to be proud of?
    really hope we are proud of japanese skaters...
    but actually most are not. it's just sad thing. maybe after retireing we always notice how much the skater are wonderful...

    That's so sad.

    They should cherish their skaters. JP skaters are so talented and hard-working.

    I'm not Japanese I'm just a figure skating fan who appreciates great skaters regardless of nationality.

    But way to go for Akiko to pull up NINE SPOTS to 11th. Nice work by Cheltzie Lee -- I see great things from her. Also a great surprise from Cynthia--she had a lot pressure to stay in the top 10 and she definitely stepped up!
    Yuna Kim was NOT overmarked! She skates and acting at the same time while other don't. Seriously, Can you point any girl right now can do what Yuna did. Skating is about the whole package. Not just two tail pony tricks. Yuna should have WON this world title if that stupid japanese tech caller don't give her 0 point the her spin in the SP.

    I know. I was just pointing out that the many failures only consisted of really two mistakes...

    Let's just think about this.

    Mao -- clean, one 3A downgrade
    Yuna -- fall on 3S, waltz jump at zero points
    Laura -- too many damn double jumps
    Miki -- clean, but no 3-3
    Cynthia -- clean, low base value
    Carolina -- did hte jumps, but -GOE for wonky landings plus some DG
    Akiko - singled flip
    Ksenia -- fall on 3S, low difficulty
    Rachael - only 3-2, singled lutz
    Viktoria - clean, but low difficulty
    Mirai - bad lutz landing, fall on 2Axel, edge call on second lutz, and 2DG

    So Yuna did bad (for her), but in the end her difficult technical content won her out in the end.

    Uh.. I say slightly overmarked. I meant like 3-5 points. Anyone on this board knows I love Yu-na Kim. But she did not do her best today. And she deserved 0 points for that spin. She already did a rotation on the 1st missed spin, so really she shouldn't have bothered to do the second. So relax, OK?

    And that's one more triple axel than any other lady who skated.

    but don't you think that it no fair. She missed it but she went back to it right away, and did a beautiful fast spin. She should earn partial credit for that since she completed it. Not 0 points.

    Her spiral sequence got a 0 because it just wasn't a sequence. She let her foot down before she did her second spiral. She got a level 1 for one of her spins because it really wasn't a spin. It was her left foot losing control. Yesterday's SP was painful for me to watch, but I'm happy Yu-na got over it to deliver a redeeming skate today and leep from 7th to 2nd. I hope her poor performances (I mean poor by Yu-na's standards) here will motivate her to skate next season... just a fan's silver lining I'm grasping at straw here to make myself believe she will stay.

    That's just not right. I can only say some people got spoiled.
