    I've got a Eurosport 2 stream right here: http://www.time4tv.com/2011/09/british-eurosport-2.html

    They're showing ski jumping at the moment, but they said figure skating is coming up live.

    The Russian TV streams posted in other threads are probably showing it too. I've found them irritatingly freeze-prone this whole competition though.

    Christina GAO (USA)

    Music: Libertango by Astor Piazzolla

    3F+3T - tight landing
    2A
    3Lz+2T - e, twofooted on 3Lz
    CCoSp
    LSp
    3F - fall
    3S
    3Lo
    3T+2T+2Lo - a bit slow ride-out
    StSq
    ChSq
    FSSp

    Not her best, but noone expected her at the final. Somewhat gawky interpretation of a tango.

    Gap wet down on a triple flip, otherwise really really excellent. She is projecting more, and did a Triple Flip Triple toe (I think) combo. Really came back well after the fall, did not lose concentration at all. I am very impressed with her this year! I'd actually love to see her be the USA's number 2 at worlds.

    She is a little gawky but I do feel like she's made huge strides in smoothing out her gawkiness this year. Is she tall,does anyone know?

    Her conditioning has been great, though her arm placement and leg line could be more refined, particularly to match the movements of the tango she's attempting to interpret. But good jumps apart from the fall on the flip and the two-footed 3Lz.

    ^According to ISU Bio Gao is 165 cm.

    But I mostly think it's her long, skinny legs and arms that make her gawky

    I think it's time to just admit to myself and everyone else that I don't like Tukt. I don't rule out liking her at some point in the future (I used to dislike Ashley and now I am coming to love her) but at this time she does not do it for me. I have tried to like her, and I know lots of other people like her but something about her skating and style just grates on me. When she is totally clean she does have an energy and dynamism that I like, but any other time I struggle to finish watching her. I think maybe she is just too athletic without any artistry for me. I can't stand her arms. I thought she'd backed off on the arms this year but at this competition they are back in full force. It is just for me.

    That said, solid skate. She will surely be in first.

    3Lz+3T(step-out). 3Lz(step-out). Good 3F. Not a great layback spin, though, in levels or in position. 2A+3T (eeked out that 3T). 3S+2T+2L(eeked this out too). Good 3Lo. A little shaky on the spiral and not a great Bielmanposition. Good 2A with the arms aloft. Overall, she could have better timing and connection to the music. She will have a lot of negative GOEs, but she will likely get the rotation.
