Machida's firebird was ridiculous. Seriously. Everyone in the arena was expressing disbelief at his costume before the Rippon/Song clash happened.
But Dai's fp was a bit of a let down too. At this point if he isn't going to make GPF, he should change the program completely....

I think he is, even if he bombs at NHK, he won't place lower than second or third: he recives 80+ PCS even if he falls 2 or 3 times!

really sad for Nan Song...altought the official speaker and himself said he's ok.some skating fans saw him in the hotel today.He looked really not good.can't walk by himself(need someone help or put his hand on wall for support),and his neck if surrounded with something.He said he can't remember what happened yesterday.and his teeth are broken too T T
Voronov is really a good guy.he's the only one who stop the warm-up and come to see Song,even before the officers notice it....

I don't like Takahashi's FS, I think not suits for him..

The time on ice at 4CC and after collision at COC must have felt like never ending ages to him. I hope the concussion would not have severe lasting effects on him as they often do, and that he will never suffer another head injury ever again which can compound the effects.
I also hope he will have an unhindered and brilliant skating career from now on.

He suffered serious latitude sickness after his LP and almost fainted and sent to hospital.

It really was a stupid decision by JFS to assign both Daisuke and Yuzuru to NHK. Yuzuru is certainly a wonder boy and has become a perfect symbol of tragedy and hope as Japan struggled to recover from the earthquake and tsunami. For sure the Japanese media will be featuring him prior to and during NHK everywhere, not just for the skating coverage but in all general news. Still, I think he should not have been assigned to NHK. Daisuke was the winner of the 2011 Japan Nationals and thus has all the rights to be at NHK this year.

I've read Chinese fan asked Natalie what's happened to Brian. She said he became ill from food poisoning.

thanks. it seems Song needs some luck. I really like his skating. I hope Buttle's choreography will help him increase the PCS.
