    All right, she kicked Alena's a**, as it should be, I sincerely hope ALL the ladies in f.s. kick this wannabee down to the bottom of the barrel, starting with her countrywomen Adelina & Elizaveta (can't wait until they can go to Worlds)!!!!

    Yeah, she's got the highest score now on the GP for a ladies' SP so far this season! Great for you, Akiko! I her; she's always a joy to watch!

    I just want to know what those Brits are on when they said Alena is more artistic. I don't get British humor. :D

    Looks like the judges are still eating up Morozov's tacky choreography. I'd deduct a couple points off just for that step sequence alone

    Akiko was absolutely amazing. And to be honest, I'd probably have her even higher on PCS especially considering what some other skaters received. That gold medal is hers to lose tomorrow.

    I thought exactly the same thing
    I still think Mao is on the right track and we all know she is peaking later in the season. She skated really well despite the mistake

    Except for the gorgeous poetic fragile doe, Mao (& Ashley Wagner), this competition was bleh imho.

    But all GPs are really, they don't matter on the big picture, nor when it comes to history. Only Euros, Worlds, and the Olympics, as it should be.

    Still, it is a great opportunity to get their programs out there, get feedback from the judges/fans/audience/et al, and hopefully earn a medal or two to advance their stock.

    That said, good luck to Mao at COR! Oops, and the FS here, of course.

    I don't think they're setting up anything. Akiko was the best out there.

    I think it's mostly Akiko that's setting herself up for the win. Not many ladies manage to land a 3-3 for the 1st time at the age of 26, especially after not competing for a few seasons due to illness. And there are few skaters who can skate with such joy and freedom.

    Congratulations Akiko! Brilliant! Was this Akiko's first 3x3 combo?
    Well deserved first place.

    Alena's jumps were on today. I am not crazy about her program but imo she
    did a good job selling that program.

    Yes, the only person setting Akiko up is Akiko herself, by skating beautifully. And I hope she does well - a Worlds podium with three ladies in their mid-twenties (Akiko, Caro and Alissa) would be fabulous.
