    Normally, I would agree but this season, ladies have been so underwheliming. With Mao struggling and Joannie out, I don't think she'll have much competition even if she skates like last year. But then again, I do welcome any surprises because every competition needs some excitement!

    And he buys the Zam drivers a McD Angus Burger or brings Chinese food! He's a great guy, the skaters love him, he really creates a team or family atmosphere at EWIP.
    Happy Skating!

    And Photos (#1, #2, #3) from Rising Stars on Ice's facebook.

    Michelle Kwan and Yu-Na Kim and the cast of Rising Stars on Ice.
    This too will pass away.

    Yu-Na will likely make the podium next March. But winning after not competing for a whole year? I'm not so sure.

    Who's going to beat her?
    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    He really does. I took VERY basic adult lessons last year and he was always there. He actually came out of the office and showed me to the ice and helped me with my skates the first time I went to the rink to check it out.

    I hope she really comes to Tokyo.
    Doesn't the ISU penalize you for not competing in the Grand Prix and other warm-up events? It's just not fair for skaters that have the burden of traveling and competing everywhere to lose the medal for a one time show.

    This may help you, read "Rule 102 2.Definition of an ineligible person". Yu-Na has no reason to be ineligible.

    IMHO, skaters are not forced to take the burdens, GP series, Euro, FC, etc. If they don't want to do it, they need not to do it like Joannie, Evan, etc...

    The matter is how many invitations skaters can receive from the hosting federations. And World championships has another solution to whom not competing during the ongoing season or immediately preceding season. "Preliminary Round".
    This too will pass away.

    I lost a lot of respect for Yuna after the whole Brian Orser firing earlier this year.

    ^ what does that have to do with the price of fish in china?

    regarding Yuna skipping the gp series, possibly the 4cc's and going straight to the Worlds - i really dont think her one and only goal and purpose is to win the gold. I'm sure it's one of her goals, but i think first and foremost, she wants to skate and deliver her performance and message of thanks to her country people and the audience. the girl's already achieved more than enough medal wise, i guess she wants to achieve more on an emotional and demonstrative level if anything.

    Hope Alissa could get any medal back to US.

    If she wins Gold, it will be the first time since Kimmie's 2006.
    Silver, Sasha's 2005.
    Bronze, Sasha's 2006.

    Whichever the color would be, it will be greater than her winning GPF!
