    I really hate calls for people to retire to make way for the next gen. These are young (n.b.) people who've spent their whole lives and fortunes pursuing this thankless and body-killing sport. Let them decide for themselves when to go, and let the new kids earn their spots.
    All tongue in cheek .........Cynthia probably should retire too, but she hasn't won anything yet. I'd like to see her medal, then retire :D

    European ladies have no chance this time. It's not Torino, or Sweden, you know? Ice may be slippery, but the Europeans are the first to slip. As same as four years ago, Ando and Asada will finish 1-2. Ando can retire with honor. The bronze goes to one of Flatt, Kim, Murakami. I hope the US ladies get back three spots. It ALL depends on Czisny.

    I hope Laura Lepisto will prove you wrong about European ladies, but it may be hard for her to skate to her potential in March.

    I don't like that way of thinking about it, but Asada-Kim-Ando would be just fine with me (in any order as long as judging is good) and Murakami too, if one of the above falters. But I wish Nagasu were going to be there.

    One never really knows. Who thought Nagasu would have a meltdown in the FS after doing so well at Nats, Olys?

    Then Czisny, with a history of peaking early and doing badly at worlds...history would indicate that she'd skate at best how she did at 4CCs, likely worse. This is one case where I hope history makes the wrong prediction.

    mot's post pretty much speaks my mind, but I would like to add that :
    I'd LOVE to see Miki win this!! and yet at the same time see some portion of GS/FSU posters keep complaining about it. In other words I, as a big Miki fan, don't want her to bring the utmost "skate of her life" in this game. That's for some other time to come true. My joy is Miki improving each year, and hopefully it will be so till Sochi.

    • exquisite Mao
    • sublime Yu-Na
    • Alena's smile at K&C
    • Jenna's lutz
    • Kanako's smile from the beginning to the end, in abundance
    • Rachel pumping fists with joy
    • Kiira skating her free programme clean
    • Elene nailing all jumps
    • Laura skate, full stop...


    • All the girls to go home happy and ready to tackle next season;
    • All the women to go home satisfied and motivated for another season;
    • All the ladies to let themselves go a bit after the competition finishes, and really enjoy wonderful Japanese food (and sweets!) till their heart's content.
    and I add lastly, no injuries while the game is on!!

    That may be enough to make me swear off figure skating.

    Sounds to me that the expectations aren't too high, as her coach pointed out that it's important to attend a competition before the season is over.

    Kiira Korpi has been the top Finn in three Europeans, but she has never been the top Finn in Worlds. I wonder if Laura has it in her to beat Kiira.

    What is it about Asia that you would want domination?

    Some people enjoy Sports as universal. May the best athlete win from wherever he comes.

    I want Miki to win!

    She is a powerful, solid, on-fire performer with big jump and she continue to improve.

    I also has a soft spot for her as there are so many Miki hater.

    It would also be great if Alisa can get medal.

    The best athlete should win from wherever he comes. I seriously doubt ...

    could Kostner win a medal in 2008 if it was not in Europe?
    could Rochette win a medal in 2009 if it was not in North America?
    could Lepisto win a medal in 2010 if it was not in Europe?

    This year, it's going to be fairest event (I hope).

    I guess by your logic Asia is the only region of the world that is free of bias.

    In any case, no Japanese judges in Tokyo except for Ice Dance. Conscequence of a draw. http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=2152
