    I'm so happy. I got so nervous when I saw how well Arakawa and Ando (and Michelle for that matter) did that I was worried for Sasha. Oh, tomorrow should sure be a showdown. Wonder if Ando will attempt the Quad.....if she nails it, it would boost her medal chances, but if she botched it, it would likely kill them. Going to be interesting tomorrow.

    Good lord, I've never been so nervous for anyone as I was for Sasha a few minutes ago. I'm happy to see her skate cleanly and I'm even happier about her placement. Crossing my fingers she can do it again for the LP!

    not having been there, who knows. But I'm surprised that MK was placed below the 2 japanese girls who had serious 3-3 combos, but then sasha was placed ahead of them w/just a 3-2 combo.

    What short did MK do? last years?

    Maybe she'll go for broke in the freeskate and try a 3sal-3toe? I would at this point if I were her.

    Way to go sasha!!!

    Michelle was definitely robbed. The judging here is so bad.

    Shizuka and Miki both had underrotated 3/3s, and worse jump landings than MK. Not to mention Shizuka was a revolution short in her flying camel.

    It seems they really want Kwan to quit.

    What di Sebastyen get?

    What place is Julia Sebastyen in? (She was the only one scheduled to skate after Sasha, right?)

    Way to go Sasha!!!!!!!!

    Wow, for MK to win gold, here is how the top 4 have to finish in the freekskate:

    1. Kwan
    2. Ando
    3. Arakawa
    4. Cohen

    Wow, that's shocking that Michelle finds herself in this position even though she apparently skated well in the short.

    I'm really confused by this judging....who gave MK 5.1 for tech??

    And Arakawa was worse than Ando in tech, and worse than Kwan and Sebestyen in presentation...I'd have had her beneath Kwan, at least - on the basis that Sasha was ahead of her without a 3-3, so why not Kwan?

    Just how important is pres. here???

    If you need a 3-3, why is Sasha ahead?
    If you don't, why isn't Kwan higher?
    *doesn't get it*


    I dunno.....at least Fumie pulled up to 8th...tough break for Sokolova - I hope her back is ok; nasty fall, and she was holding it, in pain, as she got up.

    kat....

    Jeesh, what is it with this Worlds and 6.0's. The judges sure seem to want to get as many in as possible!

    And Kwan's tech mark -- 5.1 to 5.8??? What's up with that?! Seems that most judges placed Sizuka over Michelle (which seems OK to me based on their previous competitions which I have seen), but Onda/Michelle thing is really confusing. A shame, too, since now Michelle would need to pull a Sarah to win this.

    i was surprised michelle was placed behind the japanese ladies, but even more surprising was shizza ahead of miki miki, IMO seemed to have been techinque - shizza did not impress me at all.

    michelle did skate her short from last year, and she skated it pretty well - but, i guess i've seen her skate it better.

    sasha's quality of skating - the overall package was much better then the japanese ladies, i think she definetly deserved to be ahead of the both of them.

    My guess is that even with 3/3s from MA and SA, Sasha will win if she does a clean 6 3 LP. I would also venture to guess that on the other hand, even if Michelle skates clean she will not beat a 3/3 LP from MA and SA. For Michelle most likely no gold, maybe no medal. Now if Michelle throws in a 3/3 in the LP she has a chance. I'm not expecting this, however.
