    Mao's expression when she saw the #1 come up was priceless - not Sarah-Meier-at-Euros priceless, but pretty cool nonetheless. Right up there with Meagan Duhamel's "115 with three falls" last weekend as great reactions of the GP season.

    It was by no means one of her better performances, but it's her first event win since 2010 Worlds and her first GPF in three years, so I for one intend to be happy for her.

    Well Mao's skating overall is superior to Alena's, let's be honest. Mao's PCS should be so much higher. Love Mao butterfly sweetness.

    Yes, thank you Nadine ... Mao skates like poetry in motion!

    YaY for Mao !!!
    so does this mean Mao and Alena get the last 2 spots for the GP ???

    too bad again for Adelina I wanted her to go to GP instead of Alena. but clearly the wins have reversed and she now lost all her competitions to Elizaveta.
    her 2nd Growth Spurt is not the issue, its her pressure and nervousness that has plagued Adelina.
    maybe 2012 season will be better ? who knows

    Not a perfect competition but enjoyable none the less. Was really impressed with Leonova, I enjoyed both her programmes, would probably have given her first in the long. Beautifull performance from Mao but she was a bit down on the technical side. An improvement for Adelina, I liked her performances better here than in China.

    Biryukova has put down a very good claim to be on the Russian team for europeans and worlds. The US ladies seem to be struggling a bit at the moment.

    If I am reading the protocols correctly Mao got level 4's on all of her non jump elements. Wow.

    Good for Mao but please 3A soon! Go Leonova!

    Flatt has abandoned her Lutz and taken herself out of it.

    For now I agree it's a good thing for Mao to eliminate doing the 3A, especially since her coach is re-working her technqiue, but in the long run, at the next Olympics, she will need her "secret weapon" imho.

    This is what I always admired about Sarah Hughes, no matter what she went for those two 3/3s, finally succeeding in doing BOTH of them at the Olympics, what better time to accomplish it then there, lol.

    Back to Mao, you want to skate your best at the Olympics, especially if others skate their best as well. In that case, you will want your best to score better than their best. Jmho.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But I thought Adelina will no longer be competing again at junior worlds
    but will just compete in other senior competitions next season
