Evan skated a clean program with 2 3As... Nobunari popped his 3A and still won the LP by almost 5 points. Laughing And that with Evan getting a World Champion PCS boost. Smile[/color]
Not even a PCS boost can help Evan with his iffy jumps. Sweatdrop And unfortunately Mirai was struck hard with the "<" too. Sad

Congrats to Tono and Akiko! Cheering

Analizing the recent trends in figure skating, the result of the upcoming Olympics looks obvious: Plushenko will fall on his 2axel attempt, and Oda will grab the gold. study

Well, unfortunately Dais wasn't present at this competition to satisfy your/our thirst for greatness, so all we can do here is to congratulate the actual winner with his remarkable achievement. -P

Way to go, Nobunari! Smile

So sad to see Denis messing up his jumps. Sad I've been rooting for him after watching him in THE ICE. He seems good friend with Mao in team TAT. :joker: I hope he can do better next time!

Wow! Akiko won. I'm so happy for her. Same to Nobu! Cheering
What happened to Mirai? Ouch! Just got a look at the protocols and she's been hit with a number of ! and < marks.
And Carolina... Sad Looks like she won't be going to the GPF, too.

Oh, I couldn't be happier with the result!!!


...Ok, maybe a little bit! Razz I LOVE that Akiko won, and I hope that making the GP this year will give her the upper hand in the war for the third Olys place with Fumie and Nakano. But I am SO sad for Mirai. Sad, Lonely There is such quality to her basics, such beautiful spins and spirals, but she just can't get the jumps together. I hope she has a better competition next time! Love

On TV broadcast, Shizuka said that she designed Akiko's FS costume! I think she did good job. Smile

Nobu is ON FIRE Twisted Evil
I am rooting for him to win gold in Tokyo.

Mirai!! Bawling I love her programs this year, well, I always do, but I think the pressure got to her here. The top 4 below her were only a 4 point range lower.

Akiko's gold was unexpected to me, I have to admit, but I am so happy for her! A big confidence boost!
Happy dance

As for Shen/Zhao...I am speechless~ Mushy Love

Belbin/Agosto were just wonderful as usual. I can't say I like their OD as much as last season's xD I am excited to see them face off against V/M.

OMG! Akiko won!! I'm so happy for her. And she was gorgeous out there too. I need to watch both hers and Nobu's programs in better quality.

I'm really sad for Mirai. Almost all of her triples were hit with a <. That's gotta hurt. I hope she can manage to rotate these jumps for Nationals.

Jennifer Kirk says there is something wrong with the current judging system.

Kirk has a point. It seems to me that the new scoring system does encourage skaters to 'play it safe' and aim for less ambitious programs. And it's not even a case of 'quality, not quantity', because skaters with the higher quality programs aren't necessarily the ones getting the higher scores.

Kirk highlights this well with the Kiira/Mirai scenario. A scenario that does this even better is what happened to Mao at COR. I remember someone on this forum saying that Mao would have gotten a high score in her SP if she had done a single axel instead of getting downgraded for her 3A, since in the latter case her 2A wasn't counted at all.

Jennifer Kirk was commentating on US TV for Cup of China, and she sounds like a teenager--it definitely threw me off. Her commentary was fine, but her voice was so high-pitched that I was like, "OMG, I'm listening to a child!" Hell, no!

chineseteacup - I see your birthday passed a few days ago. Happy Birthday! You're now the same age as Mao! flower

Oh, thank you, Batsuchan! I didn't think anybody noticed, so I'm humbled, I really am. Thank you!

Heehee, I keep forgetting that Mao is older than me Razz But only by a little bit!

Thanks MaoMaoRevolution!

Let's just leave it at that, since I don't want to steal the spotlight from Mao, in the Cup of China thread, no less! lol!
