    As usual Yu Na Kim's competition to win or lose. If she skates a clean short program she will probably open up a mammoth 2 fall or more lead on the rest.

    I am waiting to see how the quiet and partisan Russian crowd reacts to Kanako tomorrow.

    If she can't shake them out of their stupor with her SP tomorrow then no one can.

    I still think worlds as your first competition is a tall order though. Even for the great Yuna.

    You are wrong. Today at the stadium all russian fs fans were reacted warm and explosively to everyone who deserved it, and people even supported all not the best perfomances.

    I agree. The problem with the men's event was that it was held during the afternoon of a weekday in Russia, which meant that the stadium was far from full for a good portion of the event as most people were presumably at work or in school (this was clearly discernable from the wide shots from CBC coverage--the rink was not full for the longest time). When the rink filled up more, it got much louder--just look at the pairs event, which was held in the evening and was much more full and loud.

    Could someone educate me on how the draw is done. There are 5 groups of 6 skaters each. Do all 30 skaters pick from one bag, or does each group of 6 skaters pick for their number within their group? I'm assuming the later because all the top skaters have landed in the last 2 groups of 6 which leads me to believe the skaters are first split into their 5 groups and then the skaters draw for their number within that group. If that is how it works, then how are the 5 groups determined?

    The draw is done for every top 10 ISU ranked skaters. That is the #1 rank to the #10 rank skaters/teams will be randomly drawn among themselves. Next would be #11 to #20 and so on so forth. The fact that last group had the most highly ranked skaters was partially a random result. In other disciplines, you'll notice some of the #1-4 ranked skaters actually drew to skate in the before last group as opposed to the last group.
