    And Miki seems to like the post Olympic years so maybe she'll become a three time champion in 2015

    That's unfortunate. Yu-Na lost by a missing double toe loop. I thought her step sequence was chilling and haunting, and I think she should keep this program for next year. It was just under-seasoned. I'm surprised she didn't include a 2A+3T in her program.

    Would be interesting to know what the Brit Eurosport commentator(s) had to say about the placements?
    Anyone?
    TIA!

    Whoa! Both Mao's 3axel and the 3t after her 2a got <<, as in an actual downgrade to doubles. That is only supposed to happen if the jump is landed more than 180 degrees short of rotation, i.e. landed forward? I'd have to see the slo-mo, but it didn't look like that happened here?

    what happened to yuna and mao? They kind of skate like they don't care anymore, there's no heart or passion. Poor Alissa at least she didn't bomb tho.

    very exciting for miki!!

    Good on both Carolina and Alissa for staging solid comebacks this season when they were being marked for retirement by so many last year. Listening to her speak here, I'm really happy for Miki as well that she was able to bring back a gold for Japan.

    Yuna did pretty well for not competing this year. Of course she probably would've blown everyone else out of the water in both segments if she had so I guess relatively it was a pretty bad event for her all around.

    It's not shabby but I would have been so thrilled with a fifth place finish if she had been clean. And the lutz is her best jump.
    Still, you gotta hand it to her for not falling apart. I'm glad she looked happy at the end of it all. And her program was gorgeous as usual.

    Makarova did one to many combos, and thus got her 3S+2T invalidaded. Otherwise she wouls have finished above Asada in 6th.

    If Rachael was hurt, I wish she would let Mirai go to Worlds.

    Not competing both of her programs at least once really hurt Yuna. Losing by less than two points, it is a shame. That level one spin hurt her this time. That was the difference (and maybe a double toe on her salchow combo). Congratulations Miki, well deserved. You are the best skater THIS YEAR. Hopefully Yuna returns next year, I adore this LP so I hope she keeps it. I won't mind if she changes Giselle.
