I rooted for her to medal... And I agree that she should have gotten way higher PCS for this amazing, exquisite program. I don't think I'm competent enough to cry 'wuzrobbed', but that's what I felt in my heart
I'm so glad she wants to stick around. My nerves will now be shot for another four years, but they already were.Good interview with Satoko here. She wants to keep improving her skating, and medal in Beijing.
"While I was out injured I went through some tough times, but on my return to competition I found out how enjoyable it is to be able to do my best in each and every one," said Miyahara.
"I think I was able to express my thanks to all of the people that have supported me with this skate today."
Asked what she needed to improve moving forward, Miyahara said, "The quality of my jumps and liveliness of my program. I want to go to the next Olympics (in Beijing in 2022) and I want to go there with even more determination to win a medal."
Cosign all of this except instead of Kwan, for me it's Cohen. But what I wouldn't give for Sasha to have had half of Satoko's consistency. I'm going to the GPF and I REALLY want to see Satoko live so I am THRILLED that she was able to win Skate America and bring herself that much closer to qualifying. Hoping she can manage at least a silver at NHK and then onward and upward!!At SA Satoko was a woman among girls. The short is sublime and the long is lovely too. I've been looking for someone who could move me the way Kwan did and I think Satoko fits that bill easily.
