Missing her 3-3 in the short program and popping two jumps in the long.
That could have her well off the podium, Considering her FS jumping layout.

I would argue that a killer competition from either Asada or Gold, Who go for higher TES in their FS might be enough
Not sold on the Russians, But whichever one competes better will get a boost i assume.
Some of the comments that were made in this thread about injury etc. I don't think are very funny.
That was 3 major mistakes. And it still took her 2 major mistakes in the LP to finally lose it. Granted, she might have still lost with only 1 major mistake in the LP.

That said- though she rarely skates clean, she has skated perfectly when it counts, esp since Vancouver. Plus, the mistakes that she does normally do not count for much (leaving out 2Loops and popping 2As. She'll make up for it through components)
Don't fret hun. It's all light hearted. Plus, it is true- it will take something serious to deter Kim from skating perfectly.

A combination of three highly unlikely events:
1) Instead of peaking at the Olympics, she skates like she did at Zagreb or Korean Nationals (I don't consider either of those performances worthy of the Olympic Podium, never mind gold, despite the lavish scores she received or the gushing praise from her hardcore fans), and
2) Somebody else not only has the skate of their lives, but they are also the subjects of Divine Intervention (for example, Asada skates everything clean and lands all 3 triple axels with +GOE), and
3) The judging is fair and consistent.
I don't think any of those is likely... but all three at once?! No, the gold SO belongs to Kim, it's boring.

I think a clean Mao will win over a clean Yuna this go around. Not so much in 2010.
