    But tech callers do check how skaters are doing so in practice(planned elements, levels and all) if they see URs frequently, the likelihood is that they will be more scrutiny on those skaters' tech content in the competition.

    I agree - Ashley really does better as the underdog. I think she's said in interviews that she likes that position more than being the leader with the target on her back. I wonder how Gracie will cope with the pressure...

    I hope Mirai makes it but on the other hand I also wish she would fail and have Ashley-kind-of evolution after the games. That will be all the more magical with a skater like Mirai.

    I have absolutely no idea who will be taking that third spot.

    No matter how they skate Gold and Wagner will get really high scores in the free skate. With Gold's score form the short program she is now being mentioned for Olympic Gold! And by giving them both high scores in the free there will be talk of 2 ladies medals for the US and that will spark interest and boost the ratings for coverage in the US.

    Gold will likely win Nationals, Olympics, and Worlds this year if she's clean. No one can challenge her except maybe Yuna.

    If Mirai is destroyed by URs it will be her own doing, not the judges. The URs in the SP were called very generously for all the skaters, Mirai included, so it looks like a skater will have to have an egregious < to get it called.

    As I have said previously, it isn't about YuNa making mistakes, it's about others having no chance if they make mistakes. A nuanced but vital point niggling at the minds of all skaters hoping to challenge in Sochi. YuNa is probably feeling the least pressure of all the ladies going into Sochi. I would have said the same for Mao as well but I am not as sure of that; her legacy might seem lacking to her still. Be that as it may, any lady hoping to dethrone YuNA is going require top level mental toughness.

    Mirai skates fantastic about once every four years.

    This is the year!

    It's such a strange feeling, but I don't see Yu Na winning the Olympics. A lot of things went right last year, mostly her main competition underperformed at those worlds, and she gave probably her best performance since her Olympic skate. I don't think that's going to be the case this year.
