    I'm so thrilled for Mao, though I wouldn't want to have been in the audience for this painful splatfest. But when I see this many falls in a major competition, my first thought is, how is the ice? These are not children skating: they're experienced competitive skaters--well, except for Gao, who's just breaking in. What is it that made them all lose their mojo at the same time? I'd at least check out the ice. Let's see what the men do on this ice before yelling about how awful women's skating has become. (And I will add that I hope the men are splendid! No one wants to see another demonstration of the law of gravity like this one.)

    Congrats to Mao, and to Liza with 2nd place in FS. Same that it wasn't enough for her to be over Korpi. I don't get Korpi PCS. As for Akiko and Ashley, well.. hope they will have a better day one day.

    It's OT, but Yuna just got 72 pts in her NRW Trophy SP. Talk about competition.

    Welcome, WromgEdge, and thanks for the post. Any Youtube yet?

    Mao was great. That's what figure skating needs most of all, stars who can grab the audience and hold it in thrall for four minutes.

    Ashley wasn't as bad as I feared from the descriptions. Minus the fall on the Axel (the fall on the flip was OK ), her program had speed and pizzazz.

    Just saw the protocols, i hope i see the competition soon cause we had internet problems due to bad weather, Liza has very low pcs, lower than what she usually gets, the margin is too huge to cover, otherwise was it a splatfest?

    Well, Mao was also good. Otherwise, splats and pops throughout. None of them will beat Yuna if she continues as she skated in the SP at NRW.

    Congrats to the medalists! I'm glad Mao overcame her difficuties and won gold, especially considering the fact that before the LP she was considering withdrawing because of her hip injury (and the pain making it difficult for her to skate).

    http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20...6-spnannex-spo
    Short summary by silenceisgolden from BoI:
    After 6-minute practise, Mao said to Sato "I can't skate" (she got discouraged because of lower back pain.)
    Saying "No kidding" and "Try how good you can do under such conditions!", Sato got her fired up.
    I'm also happy for Liza.

    Yes, there are times when the gold shouldn't be awarded imo While I know of no sport that occurs in, I have known it to happen in piano and dance competitions. Gold should mean something .
