    Interesting to see James/Cipres in second ahead of the Italians, and with a very good score. They seem to be making great progress this season.

    The new costumes for the SP are boring. The others were weird. I think they were forced to change? Anyway, I'm going tomorrow. Hope it'll be fun.

    I worry that they may get a costume violation for her costume not covering enough of her body?

    We all know Yuna will win this easily, but sadly there's nobody here who can give her a challenge.

    It looks like a monokini ... which, imo, are tacky. But thrilling skating as ever!

    Aliona and Robin were amazing, love this couple! Everything was working for them, the jumps,
    spins, lifts and their connection to the music and each other I thought was spot on.
    I am glad they changed their costumes, huge improvement.

    Here is an article from Icenetwork.

    Not to mention, Australia is not quite a skating desert. You had some talented kids on the JGP this year; Australian nationals are on now, and the senior events' Long prorams are about to start:

    And if you vote in the Where Do You Live poll (which determines things, like do we cover events from your area), you would get to be the first respondent from Australia!

    Here's the poll:

    Haha thanks for the info, dorispulaski! re: vote I've voted Turns out I'm the second

    If they didn't get one for Robin wearing tights at SC, I don't think they'll get one now. Her costume isn't that much more revealing compared to some of the others - Volosozhar is showing about as much skin, except it's all in the back in her case. And Aliona has worn tiny shorts before.

    ETA: looking at the IN story, I see Robin doesn't mince words about the minimum score rule:
    "For Germany and Dortmund, it is great that Yu-Na Kim comes to compete here for the first time," Szolkowy said. "However, it is stupid that top skaters like her who pause for a year have to go to a small competition first to gain a minimum score before being allowed to go to worlds again."
    I agree. The idea itself is sound, but there should be some mechanism in place for top skaters who took a hiatus. I thought so last year when it was Plushenko not having a score for Euros, too - though in that case his federation was able to get him an exemption.
