1st group is done, now the 2nd group is out on the ice for their 5 minute warmup!
AND THE USA IS IN FIRST PLACE THUS FAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AGNES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
According the announcer, Suguri was the first Japanese skater to win an isu championship. What about Ito and Sato? Was that an error or a loop-hole?
Ito won Skate Canada back in the 1984-1985 season, so I believe that is the first ISU event win for a Japanese lady singles skater. GP events are not considered to be ISU championships. Championships are Europeans, 4CC, and Worlds.

Oh wow, I really love Cynthia Phaneuf's gold glittery dress (looks almost exactly like the one Oksana Baiul wore for her "It's A Wonderful World" pro. program). And Alissa looks so lovely, reminiscent of Sasha Cohen when she first skated her "Romeo & Juliet" masterpiece that one year. Also Fumie always looks lovely, dark royal blue looks good on her, as well as her lightened hair (hard to believe she's the oldest out there, she honestly looks about 14 or 15 yrs. old)!
HERE WE GO, WARMUP ENDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Is it the dress or does Alissa looked slimmer?
Boy was Valentina flying out there, perhaps too much speed going into the 3L resulted in the fall, then a good comeback with the 3S, but fell doing simple footwork (looked deflated after that). And on a shallow note she looks *exactly* like Cynthia Phaneuf (lol, I honestly thought it was her at first). :D
Missed beginning of Marchei's program. She fell on the footwork - which was sad, cause she was rockin' it.
45.57 - she's devastated.
i'm so sad for her :-( i hope she will do a god job tomorrow
I have to hand it to, Fumie, she gets major props from me for still being able to compete with the younguns out there. She doesn't look her age at all, either physically, or when she skates. Jumps were good, the Japanese always have very good high jumps. Too bad about the fall-out on the 3L/2T combo. (fell out of the 2T & maybe two-footed as well), but good comeback with the 3F & 2A. Good job, Fumie, good job!!!!!!
Fumie Suguri: Nothing special. Very little flow on the jumps. Probably URed one or two.
