    No she didn't.

    Please just stop. You're turning yourself into a very unpleasant bot.

    Damn. More surprises in the freeskate...this time, not so pleasant ones, for me at least...

    This feels so anticlimactic, having it after Olys. I don't think I've ever felt this bleh before. Gone are the days I'd get up early in the morning and tune into Eurosport's live Worlds audio stream, and/or follow PBP on FSU...getting nervous, etc...those were the days...now, checking the results wasn't the first or even the second thing on my mind this morning

    But I digress. congrats to Asada for winning another World championship and beating the OGM in order to do it. She should feel proud of that. And also Kim for fighting back to get on the podium. But what's Lepisto doing up there?

    Looks like our ladies had some struggles. Things were looking up after the SP but seems they came undone. Oh well, what can you do. But I hope it's too early to wonder what the heck happened to US ladies skating. I hope it was just an off-night.

    Anyway, an end to a rather strange season IMHO. Of course the highlight event for me was the US Nationals...nice to finally bring back that anticipation and nervousness that I used to feel watching big skating events in the earlier part of the decade. Hope there are more to come. And Nagasu really made the most progress IMHO- I really hope this was just an off-night for her because I think if she keeps improving, she can be one of the world's best. Lepisto also seems to be breaking in - or the judges seem to be breaking her in - to the truly elite level of world skating. With this world medal she can continue to contend for medals in the future, assuming she doesn't pull a Sokolova or something.

    Ot but little bit on subject: Are there rules somewhere on ISU's sites? I know only I have heard from commentators during years.

    I'm just saying compared to Yuna's change foot combo as the orignial poster asked how to beat Yuna.

    If you watch that side by side like the one in NBC's comparison, you'll see what I mean.

    One more thing Mao can fix is here sit-spin, her legs were keeping coming down as she spins.
    Well, it doesn't really make a difference in scores as they get comparable GOE's for non-jump elements. It's only in the jump elements that Yuna has the advantage in GOE.

    He's referring to Mao's 3A< in SP.

    Obviously he's a bot.

    Urgh. 3A< is different from 2A. On CoR, she just rotated upto 2A, entirely different situation. Stop your trolling.

    First of all Kudos to Yu-na for even showing up... she could have been lazy and stayed home, enjoy her OGM win and Korean adoration but she didn't

    Congratulations to Mao at 19 she won 2 worlds and Olympic silver medal! Feel bad for the 4-5th placers who are just a a point more/less to a medal

    But after she won the US nat, she finished off-podium. Yes, she had growth spurt and so on, so let's say that season was a fluke.

    Then this season, didn't she finish 1st in SP but off-podium in grand prix (the one in Russia IIRC). And again she's 1st in SP and off-podium.

    I'm merely making an observation that she doesn't seem to do well when she's the chased, rather than the chaser (or someone w/ nothing to lose).

    As for MJ -- she can't handle the pressure, nor is she technically good enough to measure up to Mirai and others right now.
    We could have said the same back in '07 when Yuna had the lead after her SP and then had a shaky, subpar LP.
    You are basing Mirai's character and competitive abilty on what - 2 skates?
    Before you start with the Yuna excuses - Mirai has a sick mother - she feels pressure too. She hasn't even been with her coach for a year yet.

    I think Mirai messed up - but like the other girls said - she was really tired trying to train for this event. Yuna was not her best and either was Mirai. That's the way it goes sometimes.

    I am not going to make a determination now that Yuna can't handle success - just as I won't decide Mirai can't handle it either.

    This was kind of a no brainer for me. After the SP I was sure Mao had this championship. I knew Mirai would have to skate well to keep 3rd - and she didn't. I refuse to label her with anything yet. It is too early in her senior career.

    In oly's she doubled "only" one jump. Here she had good lutz, at last. Next year she must have them both and include another lutz and she must learn to do to flip. There are so many talented skaters who can jump, Ksenia, Cynthia, Sarah H...for example and there are some girls who are not old enough for example in Russia.

    NO, she did a 3A2T but the 3A was DG so its 3A< and another 2A is fine.
    In COR, her first attemp was way too short as a 3A so it marked as 2A but still short, so she got a 2A<, in this case, her 2A later i the SP didn't count

    Random comment: I was kind of hoping Yu-na would win here, not just because I'm a fan, but because it would be awesome to see a Yagudin-like grand slam of titles. Yu-na was close, winning TEB, SA, GPF and the Olympics, but not Worlds. I wish she had maintained her Olympic level of focus and practice, like Mao had. That would have made this competition so much more interesting. Hoping the Sochi OGM fulfills my little wish (and hoping this OGM is Mirai).
