The fact is that you have to choose between the highest ranking or the highest possible category. If one goes to the highest possible category for him for sure he will certainly not get the highest ranking he could expect if he skates in a lower category.

That was my point, and you answered to it. Thanks.

We also have to remember that this is Midori's first time skating under the IJS. She has to get used to being stifled. ;)

I wonder how well informed she was about what the requirements were.

This sounds like publicity on the part of whomever is planning this competition. I'd be willing to bet money the real Midori Ito (or probably *any* Midori Ito) won't be present. But, I'm also willing to bet entries will be up from the news alone, even if it's not confirmed.

I think there is nothing wrong with wanting to win a competition you have entered. It is the entire point of a competition. Winning isn't everything, but it is a small gift for all the long hours of hard work, and repeat falls from doubles on bones that aren't so fresh any more (not that im talking about myself or anything :slinkaway )

I see nothing wrong with wanting to win either. I'm competing in an aritistic event this month and I really want to win. I choreographed the program myself and it would mean a lot to me if the judges thought my choreography was worthy of first place.

Um, the competition has happened, and she really did show up. And the competition is planned by the ISU.

Midori's reaction (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlD6cbyv7zE&feature=player_detailpage#t=206s) in the K&C and after seeing the result :). Love her!

She just seems so happy to be there. I hope more former elite skaters can use these competitions to rediscover their love of.competing
