I enjoyed Imai and Makarova but congradulations also to Cynthia, she was so confident!
Anyone have any clips? Sounds like a good event.
Congrats to Cynthia for coming out strong at home!! And congrats for Agnes for a strong senior debut!! Bummer Alissa didn't knock it out of the park but sounds like she fought and had a decent program and still has a shot at a medal.
ETA: Well, so far I got the top four right but all out of order except Ksenia who I predicted would win silver.
Silverlake got it pretty right: just the top two reversed

For me the best ladies in the event was Amelie Lacoste. I enjoy watching her because she is one of the only ladies who is able to do triple loop/triple loop combination. And, to me it's was a great attempt, it was very clean and beautifully done ... to bad that she stepped out ... I wish that she success on it an impress the top 3. She is able Go Amelie! :D
Universal Sports is repeating the ladies SP right now.
Just watched Fumie's SP on Youtube. I hope her sponsors are watching her performances here.
Congrats to Cynthia, Ksenia and Agnes.
I was at work so I missed the first four skaters, hope to catch them later on US. I am so happy that Agnes did well, can't wait to see her SP.
Cynthia did an excellent job and Ksenia SP was one of my favorites and she is a beautiful jumper.
Not crazy about Alissa's program she looked slow and the music was a snooze.
Fumie's SP just did not not have tech she needs to stay competitive with the other ladies. Great dress tho.
I predict the top 3 SP finishers in any order for the podium. I would not be surprised if Agnes or Ksenia take Gold.
I can not predict the winner - no one can - but I can say that Imai and Agnes will be the wave of the future and last through 2013.
Universal Sports has some videos up
1st Cynthia Phaneuf SP
3rd Agnes Zawadzki's SP
4th Alissa Czisny's SP
Alas, they do not have Ksenia Makarova's SP up (yet?)
I liked hers best.
And I really liked the height and flow of Agnes' 3t3t! Just fab. What a great senior debut for her.
I agree, Doris, I really like Ksenia! First time, knowingly, I've seen her.
All the universal videos have been taken down for people outside the U.S. and Canada :sheesh:
But I managed to find this:
Nice! Everyone's right - she rocked the footwork. I just like the choreo in general - it was different - and she oozed attitude. I have to say I enjoyed that more than anything I saw at NHK. Good for her!
Hope she keeps it up in the FS, and everyone else, too.
