    Another clean full run-through by Yuna, this time of her SP. So two clean LP's and one clean SP. Waiting impatiently for videos.

    I hear Gracie & Ashley both skated well today.

    Castelli & Shnapir landed a really good 4S throw at the end of the practice.

    C&L did skate their FD; she has a bump on her head.

    Madison Chock run into Charlie at the end of D&W's practice (FD? SD?) Neither was hurt.

    Wow.

    OK, I'm not crazy about a couple of spin positions... but there's really not much else to criticize here. This is a podium spot for sure if she skates like this in competition.

    Really beautiful... and how nice to hear some different music.

    ETA: In reference to Kim's short program practice skate

    Go Gracie and Ashley! Ashley was 4 minutes late to practice. A real nail biter. Collisions are BAD. The Italian wreck was horrible.
    Having fun, wish you were here. (BTW, I Dont know nothin' about skatin' but I and my friends disagree with the brand X forums PRs.
    We say Carolina and Mao are not jumping at their best. )

    Are Carolina and Mao at the practices? Wonder how they're doing... I haven't heard or read much about them in the last couple of days.

    Yu Na Kim seems to do better under her Korean coach than Orser. Gao also did better. The 'magic' coach is just a fantasy.
    Will P. J. eat her cake if Yu Na wins by a mile?

    Carolina Kostner, who?

    How do you figure that?

    Carolina Kostner, the Italian one. That's who.

    Don't bark at someone else's every single word though you may not like it...The competition has not even started yet. Calm down a bit, everyone. More excitement and nervousness will come to you sooner or later.

    A short news clip of Japanese boys, mainly on Takahashi. No Hanyu in the clip, so must be from Day 1, I guess. Didn't check all posts in this thread, sorry if posted already .

    I don't recall Kim winning an Olympic gold under her fabulous Korean coach?

    You need to watch some figure skating, then you'd know.

    But a skater is really not required to go to the practice sessions. Like you, I don't think the judges should be allowed to attend the practices.

    He's been consistently pronouncing her name that way since Monday. It's weird--maybe there's a typo and he's reading "Una Kim" (with "Y" missing)?

    Anyways, Yuna is dominating the practices with all these clean run-throughs, especially of her LP. Whatever happens on Thursday's SP and Saturday's LP, I'm sure she'll be OK...
