    That was a 3R/3R combo., which I mistakenly called a 3R/2R in one of my prior posts and subsequently apologized for, as the step-out & hand down afterward threw me off a bit.

    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

    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 loved Cynthia's footwork - I think she has the makings of a good show skater.

    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
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5CRzkgDRV0
    3rd Agnes Zawadzki's SP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvSg-poIwkg
    4th Alissa Czisny's SP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLuSpUOEu5k

    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.

    The Lipinski combination is abbreviated 3R/3R because the loop is known also as the Rittberger
