Skating is art, if you let it be.
Winners in Men's, Lady's, and Dance at this competition were the real World Champions
Ladies: Can go either way
Dance: My bias overwhelms me.
Ladies and Dance can go either way, but Men, ----Definitely yes!
Ladies, and Dance could go either way.
Takahashi couldn't have enough points to give him over all win. He could win LP though. Patrick is the real two time world champion. Live with it!

What a thread
For Men: yes
For Ladies: no... I love Suzuki more than Kostner, but the gold belonged to Kostner at worlds. Suzuki deserved the silver though.
Have to admit, I loved these last days.
On another note, if little Hanyu would have been there, he might have won over Patrick too (at least the FS - his WC score is higher than Chans here). Now that would have been... a reason to fall of my chair.
For men: I wouldn't say Dai is superior to Chan, but he certainly looks more interesting and musical.
For ladies: Again Akiko's program is more enjoyable for me but overall Caro has more polish at this stage. But I feel Akiko still has some margin for growth, whereas I think Caro probably won't go anywhere from here.
Dance: Believe me, I am neither American nor Canadian and I hardly watch dance. But I watched the two couples' worlds' and WTT and at worlds' I already decided the Americans (I don't even know their names!!) are much better. I know Tarasova agrees.
ladies, no Carolina is the WC. She is more polished and did a better job at Worlds. Her FS was a thing of beauty, pure magic. She hold up quite well in the SP done much better than in Nice, but Caro had so many appearances since, so she hardly had time for practice and it showed in the FS. Here Akiko did better, the places were right. At Worlds Akiko should have been in 2nd place
Is it just me or has this topic already been discussed in these pages?
For me, I have no quarrel with any of the six placements in question.
I have no problem with Japan winning this competition
ETA: In all seriousness, I don't have a problem with the results in general - but I do have a problem with the timing of the event. I just hope that Daisuke's knees hold up until Sochi....

Just another thread to bash Patrick Chan and V&M.
Or to grab attention as many Hollywood wannabes do, once in a while, fear of not being talked about - a fate worse than death.

But they get points and she used the points and the PCS made her win. It was close because Leonova had real jumps and she was more successful in real jumps. Suzuki also had real jumps but sloppy. Then you had Wagner who had SP problems. Wagner was good too in the free skate. But no way Suzuki would have made the real world champ. No way. Leonova before Suzuki.
You keep saying that, SCOTT. Do you think if you keep saying the same thing over and over again it will be true, and how you skate won't become part of the equation?
