Yay Akiko in first! I hope she can win the freeskate as well!
Gosh. The winner did 3T+2T, 3F, and 2A. Second place did 2A, 3F+2Lo, 1Lo. Both scored in the 60s. They must have done some great spins and steps.
Satoko is lovely girl
Great result for Akiko so far - I loooooove her programs!
Miyahara reminds me of Tara Lipinski. Very low jumps.
Is there a live feed for the ladies Long?
There is no live feed. They don't even show it live in Japan, only delayed coverage.
There's an application called KeyHole TV and one was able to watch the FujiTV station on. I don't know if it still works. But the quality is so awful/blurry, it's not worth the hassle.
This channel on YouTube posts the videos the next day: http://www.youtube.com/user/icechannel2011
BTW -- the broadcasting starts at 7pm local time (5am Eastern in US)
It's to last for HOURS, but I'm probably not going to start watching until maybe 8 or 8:30 b/c I'm only interested in the final group. (And certainly not interested in watching 1 hour's worth of Mao Fluff)
