    This field is crazy! I'm rooting for personal favs Fujisawa and Zijun Li to do well! But I predict that Sotnikova and Gao will get gold/silver.
    I don't know if I can even pick a personal favorite or two!

    I would love for Zijun Li to do well -- there hasn't been a great ladies single skater from China since Lulu, and it'll be something if Zijun can lead the way to a revival.

    I also want both Fujisawa and Goto to do well. They are both such lovely and beautiful skaters in their own way. I am really in awe of the Japanese skaters. They all seem like such hard workers and nice people, and there are *so* many of them that are really good -- I just want all of them to do well internationally and get the recognition that they deserve.

    Agafonova is the cutest sweetie pie, I really want to see her continue to shine after last year's JW. I also eagerly anticipate Sotnikova's int'l debut, I hope she finds back her jumps and confidence from a couple of years ago. These two are my favorite of the baby Russians.

    I hope to see Christina to continue to improve. Her jumps are phenomenal, such good technique! I hope she continues to make leaps and bounds with her presentation and musicality.

    With so many to root for, some are bound to do well and others bound to fall short. Well, I guess it'd be best if everyone skates up to their best abilities (unlike JGP #2!), and then just let the chips falls they may. Then at least they can all feel proud of themselves, and go home knowing what they need to work on.

    Question Question

    On the official website http://www.jgp-austria.com/ it says "Livestream of the event!" but it does not elaborate any further...

    Does anyone know if JGP Austria is going to be streamed live on the internet, or I am misinterpreting the words?

    Thanks

Maybe Rachael will drastically improve, maybe Alissa will finally find some consistency under the new coach, maybe Zawadszki will make leaps and bounds in presentation (as Christina has over the summer, apparently). Well, let's see!
    Christina seems to be improving, but I don't think she will finish above Rachael, Ashley or Caroline. She may finish above Alissa, depending on which Alissa shows up.

    Caroline? Seriously. Caroline finished 11th at nationals this year while Christina finished 5th, and they had about the same numbers of mistakes in their FS! Rachael and Ashley will probably have PCS advantage on her yes, but Caroline has never gotten inflated PCS scores at nationals. Further, if Christina does win a lot of medals on the JGP this season, it will make more of a name for herself and she may get very high PCS at nationals.

    Well, we'll see soon enough Christina's int'l season debut. I'm guessing PCS higher than Kristiene & Samantha last week, but not by a whole lot.

    And then we'll see Caroline when GP's come around. Wonder how she's doing with her new coach/rink.

    Can't wait for the GP's to start!

    At 2009 nationals the commentators talked about how Caroline's "second mark" (PCS) would go up if she skated faster. I think her lack of speed really is the big reason her PCS are usually low, I know her basics aren't the best but even with her basics as they are and more speed her PCS would probably increase. So I hope we see more speed from her this season!

    Thumbs down Poor streaming

    My stream is really bad...
    Sometimes the screen goes black, and the sound is not always there. Anyone else experiencing problems or is it because I have a slow internet connection?

    My streaming is OK now .

    No interruptions in picture or sound during the second warm-up group so far. If you have problems with the stream, I suggest you try again. It worked for me, but maybe I was just lucky.
