Thank you everyone for the videos and reports! Yu-Na is really in a wonderful shape, and her layback has improved a lot, it might even receive level 4... But I can't watch the videos (they're blocked in my country), can someone tell me how the Pairs practice was?

Strange, I got it yesterday, but can't today. From South Carolina here.

No, Yuna doesn't do enough features to get a level 4. She does a sideways (1 level), holds for 8 revs in basic (1 level), and haircutter (1 level). That's level 3. If she lowered her leg and sped up the rotation (like what Viktoria Helgesson does) she would get the level 4 w/o Bielmann.

At the rink. Again.
Depends on how clear the increase of speed is. It's the most nebulous of calls for spin features...

That would be awesome if she did it in the competition. The starting order is up for the ladies and I was a bit surprised that Kaetlyn is skating so early (9th of 35). I'm afraid she'll get buried with so many great skaters performing after her. (Starting order: http://www.isuresults.com/results/wc2013/SEG003.HTM)

Why do those ustream videos have to be geoblocked :( WHYWHYWHY

The ustream links worked for me and I'm in NY. Glad I got to see Ashley's run-through. She looks strong, 2axel-3toe was a good attempt, looked fully rotated to me. Skipping the salchow after has got me a bit worried but probably just taking a breather since she had to rush to get herself ready for the practice.

This may work in Osmond's advantage without any of the top skaters in her group. She will have the opportunity to not have the pressure of them and should stand out amongst the other skaters in her group.

Six Point Zero
Another clean sp run through by Yuna today. Two clean lp's and two clean sp's in total. I'm really looking forward to the competition tomorrow.

The only thing I heard from Liza was that she wrote on twitter that her first practice went quite well.
