    The thing is though, her jumping tricks make her a good competitor, but as an "artist", she's just not there. All her movements on the ice do not bring anything that resembles a good solo skater. Those arms are boring and there is nothing she shows is of any form of dance.I do not think she will improve much in the future. Leonova has more to offer, and I havent seen Sotnikova yet whom I think is the best of the Russian new ladies in Seniors.

    I agree Akiko had skated remarably well and perhaps the best of all the all the ladies in this competition.

    Absolutely fantastic skate from Liza. What a grand prix debut!!
    I think in these competitions, a Bronze and a Gold is an iffy for getting into Finals. Two silvers are iffy. I think that only 2 Golds or a Gold and Silver will make the Finals. I believe Czisny and Kostner have already earned their places in Finals. (Six to go) Can you predict them?

    Good to see you back, Joe, and Nadine also.

    Predict? Eeek! I have hopes for Mao, of course. Has Suzuki made it in? I sure want her to.

    Yes, Suzuki is in. This bodes well for her chances to make the Japanese Worlds team. If she skates as consistently as she has in her GP assignments and earns a medal of any colour, she automatically makes the Worlds team.

    Akiko's LP was THE highlight of the Ladies' LP's at Skate Canada. Elizaveta was perfect but her program does her no favours and she is still a bit coltish and immature in her presentation. Suzuki sparkled!
