Miki has gradually gone downhill since 06-07 in fact. And if all the ladies who were strong from 2008-2010 were still around and skating the same way she would be the same non factor now she was during those years. Thanks to Kim, Asada, Rochette, Kostner, and others all either retiring or completely falling apart though she has risen to back to the top with skating she would have struggled to be top 5 with just a year ago. Go figure. Only one delusional would think her success this year has more to do with her than everything happening around her. Her winning performances at Worlds this year set skating back 25 years atleast.
