I really hope Anna will be able to show a clean free tomorrow. She has to leave her mark if she wants to stay in the international scene next season. *sigh* I hate it when there are too many good skaters in one country. It's like japanese Men all over.
I hope all the top ladies deliver like they did in the Short,
That would be an amazing show, And probably leave the placings the same.
Looking at Yulia's rise this season, She had:
A wonderful clean Free at SC: 131
A wonderful clean Free at Europeans : 138
A wonderful clean Free at Olympics Team : 142
I'd call that about enough, But seeing her SP result, Is it possible for her to gain a few more points ?
I guess it'll have to do with the way the others have skated before her too.
Hoping this one is kept between the two titans Yulia can rule the skating world from next year onward,
If she keeps her consistency and flexibility, She'll be good for the sport IMO.
Go Wagner !!
Crossing fingers for another WR, But will saddle for a good Podium
I would like to see Gracie pull an upset for 3rd, not necessarily because I love her skating, but because I miss the days when the American ladies were at the top of the field.
I don't care about the placements because my dream scenario would be for Mao and Yulia to skate well. That is all I ask for. That said..if Yulia skates well and Akiko takes 3rd I could hardly be upset.
I wish them all the best, the current top 3 is my ideal podium.
And when top 3 gets 220 and higher at this world's, people will start feeling that Adelina's score wasn't that high... ISU's plan to keep people from saying "inflated scores".
All these scores are to cover up the inflated scores in Sochi....
I'd be fine with anyone on the top four getting podium. Mao, Caro, Yulia, and Akiko are all exquisite skaters, each with their unique merits.
I also hope Akiko had a very happy birthday!
