    They showed Mao and Ksenia warming up in backstage, with some slide in it. Both look lovely. Go, girls!

    Nice photo. After they take their skates off, they put their (figurative) cheerleader hats on:

    I think Akiko skated beautifully! Her jumps were wonderful! And her footwork throughout was gorgeous! She keeps the figure in skating and being 27 she makes me want to compete again at 30 I really believe she was over penalized in the short. She truly should have won this competition and its an injustice she didn't.

    Way to go Mirai! I think her coaching change was very much needed and it shows. What great programs from her! I would have had her first after the short based on her doing a 3/3 and she sold it just as well as Mao did. She should have been second today. I am glad to see her getting consistent again.

    Mao is a very beautiful skater and I feel badly that the judges have put her through this controversy. This program has wonderful potential she needs to get her jumps back. I would have had her 3rd or 4th in the long program. With the long and short combined I don't feel she should have won, her tech content is way to low and by giving her these scores the judges send a poor message.

    Asada's SP was that good?
    Joy to watch?
    Yeah, but She's 22 year-old lady now, not 15 year-old little girl anymore...
    Her Mary Poppins at ice show was enough. That was a show.
    But, Grand prix is not school play, and she's not kindergarden child.

    Finally got to watching the performances of Asada and Suzuki.

    I was bored by Suzuki's program, but boy she nailed it. Should have won, honestly. Asada made far too many mistakes and benefited from rep scoring. 117 for that...more like 107!
