they got to make those medals bigger or the bands thinner!
I have to say, Miki has really worked on her spins. They were quite good here.
It's been good folks. I'm out. See ya in the morning!
Why isn't the medal ceremony on?
I compared Yuna's 2009 Worlds score with Miki's score here. (Though I know they are not exactly comparable, but I use them because in both cases both women broke 200).. Yuna actually had less tech content as she had an invalid spin and she bouched the 3S so only 4 clean tripe jumps while Miki had five. Miki also had more of a backloaded program than Yuna did. As a result Miki's TES (73.03) was about ten points higher than Yu-na's (63.19)
Also Miki's +GOE is pretty impressive (13.37) compared to Yuna's in 2009 (10.30)
But Yuna had better PCS (68) than MIki did here (61).
So clearly Yuna will likely outshine Miki on PCS and artistry at Worlds, but Miki has been so clean, something, with the exception of the Olympics, Yuna has not. (She's always made a little mistake or two such as the botched 3S in 2009 and the weird waltz jump and fall on the 3S in 2010)
It will be interesting to see if Miki, Mao or Yuna could break 140 at Worlds LP.

I can only assume pptv will broadcast Gala as it has been broadcasting everything else.
the choreography change highlights mao's beautiful, beautiful spiral at the end of the long, but i actually like the original choreography also. does anyone know of any specific reason for the change?
That was awesome.
Happy for all 3 medalists.
GOOO MIKI!! You're adorable!
Glad Mirai proved herself after the disappointment of Nationals.
Sad for Alissa. Keep your head up for worlds, sweetie! That's when it really matters!
And I'm out.
Wish I could stay for the gala, but after 2 straight nights of skating and only like 3 hours of sleep..I think I'm pooped. hehe
Good night/morning/afternoon everyone! Wherever you are!
It's been fun!
