I will not be able to watch the short program tomorrow because I'll be at school, so I want to wish all the girls the best of luck and hope they all skate clean. Go Miki!
Can someone estimate what time (local) will Kanako skate tomorrow?
I want to wake up to watch the last two ladies group.

I think the long program could be the bigger challenge. The short should still be pretty easy for her. And if she does her usual short program she will have a huge lead on the others based on anything we have seen this season, and that would take some pressure off for the long as she would have more margin for error.

I predict that Yuna will win short with a good margin, but splat fest in long due to lack of stamina.
So the final result will be, Miki, Mao, Yuna.( Well, Shinn Amano is here, so maybe, Miki, Yuna, Mao.)
i hope all skaters will be judged fairly. the last championship(2010) was a awful judging.
Six Point Zero
The word "fair" is thrown around here too often as if objective, incontrovertible marks were possible. We all know that in figure skating, "fair judging" means "judging in the way that I would judge them."

Yu-na lays it down like a champion
Mao makes gets a downgrade
Racheal skates well
Miki is clean
Murakami charms the crowd and skates well
I'm gonna watch tonight's Japanese telecst from Sydney via Slingbox. Can't wait!!!
Nothing new about what I've seen in Yu-Na's SP practice clips, but the 'same-old' Yu-Na is damn good!
Mao is unpredictable- hence the excitement!
Miki... well this article quotes her saying "Not going well at all. It's unlikely that I'll do 3/3" hummmm She seemed to be on fire earlier this week no?!
Also go Rachael go Kanako! And Carolina please don't finish too behind as I love your LP so much.
