    I agree...the ladies have not been exciting lately. I thought the men and pairs were the best part of this competition. It seems like we're getting the contenders to skate to their potential in the other 3 disciplines. In the ladies, not so much.
    The ladies have not been exciting lately because of boring skaters like Miki. If a beautiful skater like Alissa wins with her flawless execution, it would be more interesting. All I see from most of skaters, especially someone like Miki, is only jump, jump and jump without soul.

    At the end, figure skating fans remember masterpieces by skaters. Katarina Witt's Carmen, Alexei Yagudin's winter.. and Yuna's dance macabre/Gershwin concerto F... Arirang is so beautiful and has a lot of potential to be one of Yuna's masterpieces.. Hopefully, if she wants to complete next season, we would see another masterpiece..

    So Kim losing is ISU fault?? In case u forgetten, FS is still a sport no matter how u spin it. Miki made the least amount of mistake of the 24 skaters. She won it fair and square by follwing the rules. If fans want her to won every competition regard less of if she stay on her feet or furfill the requirement, because she has such better artistic qualities, maybe beauty peagent will be better.

    Miki won because she was the best at this competition. Get over it.

    I think you'd be surprised at how much PCS is actually technical, not artistic.

    hmmmmm so Miki Ando has been skating since 1989 (when I started watching skating, and I've always preferred the other events) on the world scene? wow she has staying power.

    In other words, I don't buy into one skater or one event being the end all for why a disipline or the sport itself has become predictable and boring. Some people love the ladies no matter who is winning, because to them it's exciting, and they don't "get" the love of ice dance... or men's... or pairs...

    Ando skated with verve and grace. She won the competition.

    A little grace and forbearance on the part of fans of other skaters would show class.

    I was not one who thought Miki would win. I thought it would come down to a battle between Yuna and Mao. I was wrong about that and Miki delivered the goods with a very clean SP and a very solid LP. The others made more mistakes.

    I am happy for Miki who has been a terrific skater for many years. She is also an exceptionally nice young lady and a most worthy two-time World champion.

    I can add that the Japanese skaters came to Moscow with heavy hearts. I think they handled themself with dignity and grace and Japan, along with skating fans from all over the world are proud of them.

    You know what? I was expecting that Miki or Mao would win the competition and judges would honor them advantages to express sympathy.. It is so sad what happened in Japan. It is well known that a lot of politics are involved in figure skating world... It could be money, sponsorship, nationality and race etc. As I said, I am happy to enjoy great programs newly introduced in this competiton... and disappointed with the results. That's it...

I think there is a Giant Pink Elephant in the room, and it is time that someone official intervened. Will they? Probably only when a skater finally dies.
    But Midori Ido was no pixie. Her quadriceps were huge. I didn't know she went through food issues too.
