In fact, Miki performed better than I expected, considering the fact she just had a baby, plus she stayed out of the competition for so long. Her techniques are still there, but she lacks stamina, which can be recovered given more time (similar to Yuna's first competition last year). Even you may think Miyahara is the future, but I just don't like her uber knee bend, and overall tiny figure (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in). I prefer to see Miki than Miyahara. But between Miki and Akiku, I think it depends on who is in a better condition. Miki is still younger than Akiku, right?
