This was my first time seeing Kanako. She wasn't at her best, but I can see what the fuss is all about. She looks a bit like Yukari Nakano, both in face and in quality of skating.

By the way, I like Rachael's new short hairstyle. The long hair always made her look a bit matronly. This makes her look free and unfussy.

Well, there are the results of Kanako. She beats Rachael because of her margin from the short. And here's Kostner.
