LP is definitely a bigger challengo for Murakami as she will need to dodge more potential calls, which she is proned to.
Kostner used up her WC freebie in the SP, but it is consumed on use. If she has a repeat in the LP, her final placement may look more like the Torino Worlds in 2010.
Osmond needs to forget that this is the World Championship and skate it the best she can. Canada does not expect her to be on the podium. Anything she does now is just bonus. Skate well, and she will finish in top 10. I am not even going to guess where she may end up since it depends on which Mao and Carolina show up but I think Wagner will have a hard time passing her, the writing was on the wall in the SP.
