    Seconded! It was thrilling to finally see some great, competitive performances! Gracie will have to up it artistically befores she 'moves' me, but way for landing those big jumps!
    Mao and Adelina brought a lot of good skating to the table as well, but up against those three near-perfect skates, they couldn't afford to make mistakes...
    Good Ladies competition overall!!

    I hope all the skaters have a good party and a nice break!

    I don't suppose the skaters get individual medals? I so would wish Akiko to have a gold...

    Julia-consistent? Who knows if Julia would turn out to be even more inconsistent than Adelina at next season.

    That's the thing though....you can never know anything with this sport. You assumed she'd fall twice at Europeans and she didn't fall once and won the silver and some, including myself thought she deserved the gold.

    This is not true anyway. The end of that program was an absolute disaster.

    And while Akiko did great and was amazing. Ladies world team trophy gold medalist does not exist at all in anyway and just saying symbolically of her great performance is still kind of annoying.

    Adelina has had a very strong year at Euros and Worlds. As did Kiira until the injury. Whether they skated a perfect FS or not. There are not that many perfect freeskates for ladies.

    The scoring in this competition was kinda random...but happy for Akiko nevertheless!

    It seems like Mao was injured- she seemed to be in a lot of pain during the skate and especially at the end. She definitely fought through. Even Daisuke seemed worried before she skated.

    I love love the team spirit and how the teams are so supportive of the other countries. Their kiss and cry shows are awesome!

    GRACIE CONSISTENT?!!??!?! She's been up and down all season. Which is fine for someone getting used to seniors...why can't Adelina have the chance? She is getting better.

    Adelina is just 16 years old. Give her a break. She's a much better skater at that age then Korpi could ever have dreamed of being and if she skates clean she will beat Korpi now.

    You're thinking of 2012 Russian Nationals where Julia beat her. I'm saying 2011 Russian Nationals where she won the free.

    What is the point in bringing up Yuna?
