    Yuna:

    (SP: 3F< + misses a spin + misses a position in SpSq) + ( FS: falls on 3S with no < + misses a 2A)
    = still comes out top in FS
    = comes out 2nd OVERALL.

    I mean, Wow, what a lady --- Seriously, what chance does this lady leave for any other of her fellow skaters?

    Btw, she got +2.2O (GOE) for her 3Lz+3T (FS); +2.00 for 3F (FS); 2A+3T (FS); and +1.80 for 3Lz+3T (SP).

    Also a very BIG hand for Miki and Carolina, so good to see them giving so much more solid FS than in the olympics.

    Well done for coming back from last year's performance for mao. Though, if she decides to compete next year, she'll have to address the 3A< issue.

    Laura is wonderful when she is on, but as i said before i would have been the happiest with Cynthia with bronze, would have really celebrated then. Miki could have deserved it too.

    I think you can stop pretending to be Holmes right away....Diana Kim is a perfect nickname for her already in here,it's just you dont know this....
    Hi I live in China. I was always wondering why Chinese figure fans hate Yu-na so much. Right after Yu-na won the OGM, my Chinese friends said, "But she got plastic surgery" and showed me movies on Tudou. When I asked one friend, she just said "Well, she's Korean. I don't like Koreans." It was disgraceful. Yu-na gets the most hate in Japan and China. I understand that some Mao bots probably do all the malicious stuff in Japan (just like Yu-na bots in Korea), but I don't understand why some Chinese hate her so much.

So if anything, you should hate the judging/judges not the skater. And I bet you anything if it was a Chinese skater getting "over-scored," y'all would be loving it.
    First of all,thank you,LOL
    I know my English is not bad,but sometimes I write in a very confusing style as many of my foreign friends has tole me/
    And then,I have to say YES,she is innocent in front of the scores,but I cannot control other Chinese skating fans' mounths...BTW,I'd like to add one detail to this "Hatred"issure...it's more like an entertaining thing/You know,I also go to some other sports forums such as tennis,gymnastics(some sports similar to figure skating),and people just love nicknaming those players who wins not so fair and square,like Liukin,Ponor,and some tennis players who pretends to be injured to apply a break,while after that his/her forms are getting still better...
    And it's just kind of a fashion to express their attitude and passion for them,I guess....

    Congratulations to Mao. Very nice performance. Mirai and Rachael what can I say pressure.
    Mao's LP and Cynthia's LP were the highlights for me. The other ladies imo were lackluster today.

    Usually it's top 5, plus host nation skaters, like Samuel, Anna and Luca, etc.

    Congratulations Mao for winning the title with her best performances this season.

    Congratulations for Yuna's bravery to show up after her peak and take the 4th consecutive worlds medal.

    Quick Yuna interview http://kr.news.yahoo.com/sports/golf...32801074035401

    In Korean so I translated roughly:

    I've been waiting for the season to be over. I'm happier now than at the end of the Olympic Games...

    This season was so difficult....

    I'm just glad I was able to overcome my difficulties here regardless of the result....

    After the rehearsal, I felt like it was going to be impossible today as well. I was thinking about withdrawing after 2008 Worlds SP, and I felt the same way today after the dress rehearsal. I wasn't confident that I could perform my LP the way I wanted....

    I started to feel better during warmup. I still have no idea what happened during the short program. Maybe I wasn't adjusted to the main rink? Anyway, I didn't have any problem w/ that...

    I didn't have any physical problems or lacked stamina...

    I'm just happy the season's over now.

    Wow. What a woman. I will go rewatch her SP. Thank you for shedding new light on it! I think I might tear near the end. I'm rather on the mawkish side.

    With the American ladies, and men not medalling , hope it does not hurt the sports popularity in USA, after the Olympics Evan and Johnny seemed to get alot of attention so looked more promising for the sport.

    Also Oly happens every 4 yrs, while the Worlds happen annually. I think that has something to do w/ it too.

    Mao got < on 3F (2 point) and pop 4T (zero)
    Mao only get < on 3A (but still rack up 3.5) and she earns higher levels and GOE on her non jumps elements. But she did get lover PCS mark.
