i never thought i'd say this, but my hightlight of the 2011 worlds is miki ando's exhibition numbers. she just moves me, as a person, and her skating is starting to catch up. i am happy she was able to give the people of japan a good memory from this year's worlds. there's an interview with her on FSU that just breaks my heart.
runner up: carolina kostner's long program, yeonah kim's long program.
daisuke's bad luck and the laughing hyenas in suits
yeonah and mao not being physically and mentally in the best of conditions to skate the way we all know they can when they're at their best.
ETA: additional lowlight: people jumping on the chance to bash rachael flatt, making all sorts of unreasonable claims about her character, how nagasu would have surely secured 3 spots--i even saw (tongue in cheek?) assertions that nagasu would be 2011 world champion if only rachael flatt had withdrawn *sigh*
