No question the Russian ladies have disappointed in SA and SC and presure on Julia is big!
A lot of my fave skaters are at this event - especially one in particular! GO MIRAI!! I'm still keeping the faith!

Kiiras best effort was back in 2006, that's 6 years ago...
That's gaining ground or being up and coming? I don't want to belittle Kiira or Mirai or make it sound like the talent wasn't there, which it is, but... lol.
Looks like I have precision, but not accuracy. Three for three is pretty good, IMO, even though they didn't end up in the exact spots I predicted. Ice is slippery.
