    totally agree with this. Even if Adelina has 3 falls.
    ISU hates to be criticized wrt Olympics result so judges are reluctant to place the gold medallist lower than 2nd, even her performance is horrible.

    1. Adelina
    2. Julia
    3. Akiko
    But one fall was in the SP and cost Yulia about 8 points, whereas Mao lost many more points and would have been much lower except they gave her high PCS even though her program fell apart with all 3 jumping passes being failuresl. In the LP, Mao soundly beat Yulia, though her PCS should have been 72 and it would have come down to decimal points as to who came out ahead.

    Yulia SP with 1 fall soundly beats Mao's SP with 3 jump failures but it would definitely be the other way around if Mao only has one jump failure.

    Yulia may have been held up PCS-wise in the LP, but Mao was definitely held up in the SP, anyone else with those mistakes would have had 30 max PCS.





    To those who were calculating possible scores at Worlds, Yulia's lowest SP score is 66.5 and lowest FS 125.5 = 192 (i refuse to count COR because she knows where to add in jumps now)


    I hope it will be
    Mao (going reasonably clean)/Yulia (100% clean and on fire)
    Caro
    Gracie
    Adelina (not likely but I think think this is where she'll wind up)

    Try here: http://www.wfc2014.jp/english/index.html (site is in English)

    My cousin lives in Tokyo and tried to get tix, apparently it's slim pickings for good seats now with the intense interest in the sport there, and the likely last competitive performances from Mao and Dai. Good luck, have a great time if you go!!

    That is possible. But Urmanov the 94 Olympic champ finished off the podium in 94 Worlds, behind Zaggy who got the bronze. So there was a time when the judging was fair

    I would be surprised if we didn't see at least one Russian Lady on the podium. It will be very interesting to see which Adelina shows up. She has seemed to be getting stronger and stronger all season but I'll be curious if Sochi is the peak, or just the beginning of what we can expect. I'm not sure I know Julia well enough at this point to know what to expect performance wise after Sochi. But I do remember that her second grand prix appearance was a bit lack luster and she manages to rebound just fine so we'll see...

    I hope we see a much stronger Ashley show up. Hopefully she's regained some of that confidence or at least fire in her belly. I think we may see Gracie on the podium (and what a welcome treat that will be for US Skating if she is).

    I would LOVE for Mao to win this worlds. It would be such a wonderful finale to her long career. We'll see if it comes to be.

    I'm also rooting for a top 10 finish for Polina and just an overall improvement of ladies placements for Japan. If Carolina is also there I'd love to see her on the podium.

    This may be a tall order but I think I'd love
    Mao
    Carolina
    Gracie

    But I would be a little surprised of Julia or Adelina didn't get up there.
