    Please don't bomb in your next outing. Your reputation is on the line this year.
    The combo wasn't squeaky clean but it was rotated so I'm happy.

    Angela definitely got lucky here. If she had been in an event with stronger competitors she would not have made the podium with the way she skated today. Last year she had a rough first event (placed 3rd though) but then had a really strong second competition so I'm hoping she follows that trend this year. I love both of her programs and the dresses were gorgeous too!

    I do think the judges lowballed her in terms of some of her PCS. Even with the splatting she still had one of the stronger programs of the entire competition, but when you look at the scores for IN and CH they are very low compared to Medvedeva, whose program was not strong in terms of CH or IN. Just because she landed all her jumps does not mean that she had good choreography or interpretation. Of course that's how the judges usually score these things: if the jumps are working then automatically everything else is 10 times better and I don't agree with that because the system is supposed to separate the technical stuff from the PCS...but whatever. I'm happy Angela held on for silver. If she does well at her next event she should make the final.

    She did not receive higher PCS because she did not skate well. I don't think her "IN" and "CH" is really so much better than the rest, btw.

    A wonderful performance by Medvedeva, well ahead of the rest of the field. Wang was a bit disappointing, really enjoyed her short but the free was not the best. I though after the opening combo she was really going after but it but all fell apart from there. I think Medvedeva rightly won on PCS. I haven't watch all the competitors but there was a lot of deductions. I think the Russians should have sent a second lady.

    Yeah, I loved Angela's short, but the free was a mess. It started well and completely fell part. She didn't present it at all; understandably given all the falls. Medvedeva isn't as polished as Angela (which makes sense given the age difference), but she does connect well enough to the music and the audience. Also, her tech is incredible - two 3+3 combos with one in the second half and all level four elements. Can't remember the last time a lady, junior or senior, did that.

    I agree that Russia should have sent a second lady. If they'd been smart, they would have sent Ogoreltseva here. Her scores in Mexico were higher than Wang's here, and two silver medals could have put her in a good place for the JGPF. Also, it would have meant that Wang's chances to qualify in Estonia were much lower; and Sakhanovich's much higher.

    That said, both Staviskaia and Gerasimova are reportedly dealing with injuries....

    OMG Miyabi's Les Miserables is so much like Yuna's!! The music cut & style, some of the hand gestures, the lunge in the middle of the program, the way she moves and uses her body...

    I remember Min-jeong Kwak's Les Miserables back in Vancouver was quite different from Yuna's or Miyabi's...

    Though no doubt Yu-Na has influenced these junior ladies, I think the Les Miserables fest we're seeing this season is much less Yu-Na and much more the movie.
