    Does anyone know of any coverage on the internet for this event? Or, anyone from here attending this event who could post a report?

    Not too surprised with the ladies results. That's about how I thought they would turn out. I am a bit surprised that Shizuka's PCS were higher than Irina though. Good for her!

    And what happened to Johnny? I expected a better showing from him.

    This is just a set up for the Olympics, as some people lead us to believe.

    But it seems like the ladies put down great performances. Congrat's Irina and her free-program music sounds damn awsome, I hope she backs it up with good skating.

    Slutskaya finished five points ahead of Arakawa even with a fall and even without winning the PCS. She must have skated an awesome program.

    Can anyone read the pdf files with the breakdown of scores? My acrobat reader says it doesn't have the right font to display it (probably Japanese).

    Me too. But it will probably be up in an hour or so.

    How can you tell this about her music by just the word "flamenco"? Is this the name, or the type of music?

    There's a great play-by-play report by Minam over on FSU:

    Well I would associate Flamenco as being spanish,passionate and with lots of attitude. I think Julia Sebesyen(sp) skated to this last season or the season before that. I've seen a few ice-dance couples use flamenco type music as their original dance.
    Her costume looks nice as well, it really fits right in with the music,
