    Murakami was sick yesterday, something like that I read. She looks very thin, grew up a lot! Great skate!!!

    Ashley was great! Exactly what she needed to do here. She's never been scored that high and to be so close to Mao is great. Hopefully she can keep this up in the long, I'm worried with the altitude but I guess everyone will have that challenge as well. She skated like the US Champ and she got the score to show for it. Great job!

    An off-night for Imai, too bad. But she;s the only Japanese lady who keeps her working leg straight in the layback.

    And I just noticed the twins (i.e. Phaneuf & Zawadzki) are skating right after each other; they're both MONSTER jumpers and look alike imho.

    BRAVO, ASHLEY, BRAVO, ONCE AGAIN BRAVO!!!!

    I think this is the cleanest SP she skated so far, so the judges might be stingy with mark. Imo she should be alot closer.

    Totally impressed with both...I was particularly impressed with Kanako's centering of her spins...seemed spot on and fast to me.

    The 3/3 didn't hurt either!

    Haruka botches it. *sadtrombone* Made almost every awful mistake she could've.

    If I were a judge, I might've had Murakami higher. But I can see the case for her PCS. For all her speed, her stroking and movement is still pretty rough. Ashley, on the other hand, skated with command and possibly more speed than she has in the past.

    Great show so far! I would have the top three reversed.

    Chances are she will, at least better than Amelie. They are both very determined, but Amelie's goal was to be the Canadian Champion, taking the trip to Worlds for granted, whereas Phaneuf's mind has been firmly on the World Championships, taking Canadian title for granted. Most likely they will both get their wishes. That's how our minds usually work. Be careful what you wish for.

    I'll observe with keen interest.

    Thanks Skate Figuring! I like both Amelie and Cynthi, but prefer Cynthia because she really does draw people in.

    I have a feeling Cynthia is taking this.
