    Suzuki could be the 2012 Miki Ando or Shizuka Arakawa - good skater who steals the gold. This is probably her best opportunity. Mao not fully transitioned yet with her improved jumps; the Americans not quite stable yet, the Russians second string competing with the baby ballerinas ineligible, Kostner with limited arsenal.

    I think it id going to be her Worlds
    I would love to see her put it together both in the SP and the LP.Did she not score about 65 points for her SP when she nailed the 3T/3T earlier in the season?

    I really hope she skates lights out! I didn't realize 2010 was her only worlds performance! It was so sad when she messed up the short program and had to skate in the dreaded 'early' group She's delivered some awesome performances in the past and it'd be amazing if she can do it at this year's Worlds! It'd be awesome if she could grab a medal (or win, wow!)!! I still love the A-team: Ashley, Akiko and Alissa :-) I'll be rooting for all three of them.

    I think Akiko is younger than that.

    .....Right, checked her bio.
    She was born Mar 28, 1985, so is still 26 yo. Will turn 27 next week, though.

    Anyway, I hope she will do really well in Nice.
    I love her programs, both SP and LP this year.
    If she can hit 3-3 in the short, she does have a realistic chance to get on the podium.

    Good luck to you in Nice, Akiko!

    Akiko Suzuki - Japan's best lady

    Akiko. The last two years she has been among the top three skaters lovely to watch and so athletic. I dedicate this thread to ask if our Japanese freinds here and people around the world feel this lady is especially underrated at home. At 27, she is amazing. A complete, beautiful tiny bird this year. I love Mao forever but Akiko should garner more respect from JSF. I hope she gets to Sochi, and has the best skate of her life, regardless of scores, or placement.

    I'd love to see her win an Olympic medal. It seems just if she skates as well as she can. It is amazing what Japan has done with singles in this last decade. Yes, the body size shape is a big advantage rotating triples and quads but they all seem to work so hard.

    If you had one skater you'd like to see "make it" in Sochi, who would it be? Do you have an unsung underdog?

    I like her but she is not the best Japanese skater. Mao has much better spins, basic skating, stronger jumps (when landed), more refinement, and much better choreography. Even though Suzuki currently is attempting more jump content than Mao (not more than Mao used to do by a long ways) she is incapable of skating 2 clean programs it seems so it doesnt matter. Ando in decent shape is also a better skater but I doubt we will see her return.

    Her chances for a medal in Sochi? A long shot at best. Even for Worlds this year she is unlikely to medal with all of Kim, Kostner, Asada, and Wagner ahead of her. Ashley has outdone her all year long, and even Ashley is likely to finish only 4th in Worlds again. Next year could probably be only be harder as there is potential for a couple of the younger skaters to improve and move past her, Kim and possibly Asada should be even stronger as they continue their comebacks, and there is always the wild chance people like Ando and Czisny come back strong. I wouldnt be surprised if Murakami who is improving at long last supplants her as the #2 Japanese lady sometime between now and Sochi.

    Kudos to her though winning many grand prix medals, 3 grand prix final medals, and a World medal in her late 20s. Having her best career at the end of her career at an advanced age, big congrats for that. She is a lovely skater as well with very nice musicality, I think that is her biggest strenght. Her programs are also quite nice, just light on transitions compared to some of the others.

    She is one of the best ever! Mao may have more refinement and elements for me, but I love Akiko, her spirit and her incredible musicality. The body dances with the music. She is a supreme dancer on the ice like Mao. She wears her heart on her sleeves. I do hope she could have 2 clean programs and not be like Sasha Cohen. The good thing is she has had heaps of exquisite free programs through the years.

    She is so underrated! I do hope my dear Akiko will do well in 4CC and Worlds! I want to see her become a Champion one day especially before her career ends.

    I believe Akiko needs a great sports psychologist and situational simulator to help her adjust and deliver during important events.

    I am glad she has given us exquisite flawless programs this season. Masterpieces on ice!

    Akiko at JSC. Slightly adjusted outfit, but I think it's for this show only. At Kokutai she was in her usual costume.

    For me she is not only the best skater in Japan, I think she is the best skater in the world!

    Congratulations Akiko for winning the 4CC Silver medal with a new personal best 190!!!!! Whohoooo!

    I love you Akiko! I hope she does well in Worlds The pressure is on the top 3 super girls- Yu-Na, Mao Asada and Carolina Kostner.

    I think Ashley has a possible underlying injury.

    Had Akiko landed her 2 axel-triple toe, she may have gone above 200+
