Hopefully Kiira will still find a way to be present at the Olympics in some capacity. With her personality and beauty, I don't see why some Finnish TV producer would not find it strategic to invite her to provide some sort of commentary or have some sort of presence at such an important event.

A week to go and still no participant lists (although of course you can pretty much guess who's going to be there). :violin:

Maija, how I appreciate the fact that you ALWAYS have all the information (and even a lot of extra) available as soon as possible. :respec:

Susanna Pöykiö, the 2005 European silver medalist and 2009 European bronze medalist is now doing the master thesis is Finnish language at the Oulu University. Her subject is figure skating slang and she has posted a questionare about that in FFSA´s pages. It is only in Finnish. What a great subject:respec: A totally new idea, and with her experience and expertise both in figure skating and lingvistics, it will surely be very interesting to read. If there will be an English summary and I am allowed to post a link, I´ll do that.

Susanna has also done some commenting to the Finnish tv, as have Elina Järvinen (former Kettunen), Kiira Korpi and Laura Lepistö.

I tried to fill out her survey but got stuck on page 2 since I couldn't come up with any answers. :drama: Maybe I'll try again later.

Heard Kiira commentating last week, I thought she did a very nice job considering it was her first time trying it. :) She sounded very sweet and knowledgeable and most importantly, she agreed with me on many things like Suzuki's musicality. ;)

Laura Lepisto is my favorite commentator in history. I have no idea what she's saying but her voice is incredible. :swoon: :swoon: :swoon: :swoon: I melt into a chocolatey goo every time...

Am I the only one who is in a total shock about Juulia's scores in Coupe de Nice? 109.81... :scream:

She hasn't had a good competition in a very long time.

I like her, she's so graceful, and I really enjoy her skating style if only she didn't have that deer-in-the-headlight look. :fragile: Hopefully she finds a way to build up her confidence.

I'm thinking Juulia needs to become a pairs skater. She'd be perfect.

Yeah, I know, but not landing one triple jump in FS is really sad. I know she will never reach high international level but she used to be a decent skater and triple toe and triple salchow were quite reliable for her. I hope nothing seriously wrong with her.

Physically, she should be alright. I hope she gets all the mental support she now needs.

\The title is something like "The sad truth behind Olympic disappointment - they have trained themselves to pieces" and basically she talks about how training methods need to change so that we can keep the next generation of skaters healthy (Pöykiö, Lepistö and Korpi have all had a lot of injuries during their careers).

Jenni Vahamaa too :fragile: Does anyone know what training methods are like right now?

According to an interwiew today, Kiira Korpi is recovering in schedule. She has already been on the ice. The Olympic dream is gone, says she - which is only natural, because Finland does not have a place - but she aims to skate in the Worlds in Japan.

She is always so positive, I have to admire her. I just hope that she han have an injury-free season 2014-15 and end her career in a good tone.

Loves_Shizuka, I saw Jenni Vähämaa in Finlandia Trophy, she looked happy, but it still feels very bad to think about her possibilities. Well, that´s figure skating, a cruel sport.
