    Don't like the Ukranian either. She looks terrified going into each jump and then deflates coming out of them even when they are landed solidly. It makes me feel like there is no pride in her skating... there is no flare after a cleanly landed jump (and I'm not even talking about transitions, I'm taking about head held high). Pretty spins.

    Some years back she would have been competitive, say pre-Asada/Kim years. For me, she is just...well., forgettable. All the right pieces are there, in all the right places but....

    Agreed, something about her skating comes across as awkward (? Not sure if that's what I mean)

    Xiaowen GUO (CHN)

    Music: Grenada

    3Lz+2T - e
    3F - fall
    3Lo - perhaps <
    LSp
    3S+2T
    2A
    StSq
    3T - shaky, tried to hold onto landing
    3S - fall
    FCSp
    CCoSp

    A lot of the jumps might be UR, see tight landing.

    FS: 27.40 - 35.71 - 2.00 = 61.11
    Tot: 107.55, in 7th (out of 9)

    Agree: she has all the triples, she has a 3-3, her spins are good, her steps too (level 4 in the SP), but there is something in her skating at the moment that doesn't allow me to like her... Both Miller and Wang would have been able to do a lot better than 139!

    It was funny how all of the "gift pickup" girls tried to run to get the black thing that was thrown onto the ice for Xiaowen GUO.

    Ivett TOTH (HUN)

    3F - fall
    3S+2T

    LSp - shaky on catch-foot, perhaps lost level

    She looks disappointed... She doesn't have a lot of prep into the jumps

    Toth may have the most awful music for skating that I've ever heard. Of course YMMV.

    I swear Slater is drunk. He's just babbling inane rubbish non stop.

    It's very good for skating. Changes of tempo and intensity and a lot of highlights.

    Yeah I suppose that's true but it reminds me of music from a bad 80s movie. It's almost Rocky-esque. It might have been more accurate to say I just do not like it. It's overblown and cheesy.

    Too bad about the end, but I really like Park all the same. Huge jumps and wonderful artistry in my opinion. I just like watching her. I'll keep a look out for her next season.

    Park is a lovely skater with the whole package. I hope she can continue to improve and kick butt internationally next season.
