    Miki Ando is already better than MK, Sasha, Fumie!!!

    I have been frantically downloading videos of Miki Ando. She is INCREDIBLE. She is a combination of the elegance of Lu Chen , the jumping power of Midori Ito, and the tripletriple ability of tara lipinski. She has Incredible, clean 3lutz-3loop and quad sal. Her spins are gorgeous. Wait untill you see her at Worlds you will be blown away. She is "the next one". She could easily Win Worlds this year. Watch Out!!!

    No offense, but that is a sweeping generalization with which I do not agree. In the video I saw, she's got a quad salchow and very little style or elegance. She made many mistakes in the LP at Japanese nationals. In terms of presentation, she looked incredibly Junior-ish to me. Her spins are slow and not very centered. Compared to the video of Yukina Ota, who is elegance and grace personified, the gulf between them was astounding. Ota needs to work on her jumps NOW. Ando does have great potential. BTW, at her age, Michelle was a World Champion. :D

    Hi Taan - Rah Rah Rah, I dig the old fashion rally round the team spirit. I'm looking forward to seeing Miki and I'll get to Dortmund, come hell or highwater to see her. I adore new talent but I do not appreciate them winning because they are so young and disappear from eligible skating before they realize what skating is all about - just my opinion.

    It's much too early to predict Worlds but I would think about the skaters who have been around for some time to put forth some beautiful skating: Fumie, Cohen, Kwan, Sokolova, all have World's experience - one of them will win gold, imo.

    Sorry, Taan, wasn't it you who said something like Kwan is the most perfect skater of all time a few weeks ago and Sasha Cohen could become the greatest skater ever even a few weeks more ago? And now you're claiming Miki Ando could beat those two easily at next years Worlds?

    Well, girl, looks like you're quite swiftly to impress! :D

    I can't wait to see Miki Ando at Worlds! I've never seen her skate on Television before!

    I'm not putting Miki down. I want to see her also but if she is not in the top 6 at Worlds, she probably will not be on TV. Go to Dortmund!

    You better watch yourself. Nobody can say a skater is better than Sasha Cohen and get out alive.

    Fossi, dear, it's New Year's Eve. Why don't you give it a rest? You'll have the whole year for your Sasha-nitpicking (see how diplomatic I can be? ). Besides, Taan has already said Sasha is the best. Who isn't?

    Taan........thanks for the link. I watched her skate and she has potential, that's for sure, but at the moment, not in the same league as Sasha, Michelle, or Fumie........but who knows..... 42
