If Alissa had landed that lutz clean...she would have had a bronze medal. So close! But 5th isn't shabby, considering everyone had written her off a year ago.
That was actually a really interesting competition, with 1-2 and 3-5 all being so close.
This was a **** competition with **** judging.
Just want to say that I'm extremely happy Miki Ando won!
So I guess this means Kostner medals every three years? Just in time for Sochi!!!
Congratulations to Miki, Yuna, and Kostner.
I am so so happy for Miki!!!!! Good job girl!!!
I can't help but be bummed.
Mao didn't do well
Alissa did pretty well but might have one bronze if she hadn't fallen on her fist jump, which is her best when she lands it.
Yuna should have gone to 4CC
The U.S. ladies failed AGAIN to win back the three spots
But happy for Miki and Carolina. Caro must be over the moon. Good for her.
And overall, Alissa had a good comeback year. Hope she sticks around for another. There still isn't any better American lady except Mirai.
LOL, so much for Russian conspiracies))
God, some people just can't live without them.
I believe this championship has one of the better judging in years. No big controversies.
Oh I am SO pleased for Miki! She's such a delight, and it's something for Japan to be happy about.
Kim - great first competition back, though had you won (3 mistakes) over Miki who had one mistake, I don't think that would have been justified. Giselle was forgettable, Arirang was beautiful.
Congratulations to Miki, Yuna and Carolina!
