Akiko is so expresive! She is absolutely gorgeous, first place please!
First place, but not defiantly.
congratulations to Akiko! she was the best of the field today.
1 Akiko SUZUKI (JPN) 57.43
2 Agnes ZAWADZKI (USA) 56.84
3 Ashley WAGNER (USA) 56.17
4 Sofia BIRYUKOVA (RUS) 54.99
5 Miki ANDO (JPN) 54.00
6 Valentina MARCHEI (ITA) 53.61
7 Myriane SAMSON (CAN) 53.26
8 Ksenia MAKAROVA (RUS) 52.93
9 Alena LEONOVA (RUS) 46.61
10 Elena GLEBOVA (EST) 45.78
1st-8th place separated by only 4.5 points! Anyone could medal!
I know that I'm guilty of mentioning this the last season, but please someone give Miki a decent costume and costume designer! Agggg...
Seriously, with her leather gloves & asymmetircal shoulder ornaments, she look like a Dominatrix!
The difference between Akiko & Miki in terms of costuming are truly staggering. With Akiko everything is nicely coordinated, including her hair style, hair dresses and earings. She looks very nice and polished.
GO Team Abbott!
Yay for Akiko. There is something about her …
Loved the program except for the slow spins. Don't know if she ever tries 3-3 combination?
3 flip 2 toe
Pretty close among the ladies. Eight of them 52.93 or more.
she takes the audience on her journey of emotions
Yey! Not surprised to see Akiko in first. Very nice score. Congrats to her and good luck keeping it up in the long.
Agnes and Ashley right behind her and might just pull off gold Good luck to them in the long.
Poor Miki. Don't get what happened but whatever she is doing this season seems not be working for her at all. Still, watch out for her to knock Agnes or Ashley off the podium if she skates her best in the free and they falter.
What happened to Ksenia?? I didn't watch....
She stepped out of the first 3T of her planned 3T-3T

Akiko was the best today! really nice program!!
Really good skate from valentina!
I liked Akiko a lot, American girls and Miki not that much. Agnes should work harder on her skating skills, she was the slowest.
I must say, after that brilliant skate from Sofia, I'm not sure that Alena Leonova will go to Euros this season...
Waiting for on-ice perfection.
Yes, Miki and Ksenia are not out yet. My podium was Miki, Akiko and Ksenia in that order. Stick by that. A lot of unproven skaters showing potential (just starting to watch videos). A big mix-up between the 1st & 2nd groups. This might turn out to be one of the more interesting GPs.
