    Ando was very exciting because for that whole period, she regularly went for the 4sal. always a "will she or won't she?"
    and huge jumps, 3x3s.

    Young girls don't have much to offer in term of programs, so they have big jumps. mao, yuna didn't really have nice programs anyway.

    you think what julia has to offer (leg lifts) are better than what ando didn't offer? in this case, less is more.

    Satoko MIYAHARA (JPN)

    Music: The Swan by Camille Saint-Saens

    3Lz+3T - perhaps UR on one/both. The 3Lz def looked < on replay
    3F
    FCSp
    StSq
    2A
    CCoSp - nice change of direction
    LSp

    Looked clean, but small jumps - have to check replay for UR's

    SP: 28.48 + 23.68 = 52.16
    in 5th (out of 41)

    Must've gotten some UR calls.

    Satoko has lovely skating skills but those microscopic jumps will be the end of her.

Adelina is a bit underwhelming but she just one a silver medal at Europeans on her debut, with a big score. It's not fair to compare them with Carolina IMO at this point.
    Miki, Mao and Yuna were junior phenomenon but the big guns retired after 2006 Olympics. Without Mao, Yuna and Caro(who are the big guns currently) the russian ladies would fight for gold at worlds.
    I think the complaint is there. Liza should not even get that kind of PCS at Euro. She doesn't have the ice coverage of half of the people she beat. Sure, her jumps are nice, but her programs and her skill are awful. I think her PCS was too high. Should be 55 instead of 61.
    And they talked and talked about her 3A forever. Well, by this age, if she hasn't put it out there, it is never going to happen. I thought the 3A would mask some of her deficiencies, but without the 3A, she's just KVDP in bad drag.

    In 2006, they said if Mao was at the Olympics, she could win.

    In 2012, can you say any of these girls show up at the Olympics and beat one of Caro, Mao, Yuna? No. No chance in hell. That's the problem. None of them are very good to start that kind of talk.

    I meant as juniors. By 2006-2007 seasons, they were full blown seniors with big jumps, good/great programs.
