GJDailleult: I take it you didn't watch this live then. There were about ten minutes of such not smiling moments in a row.

That's a BIG problem. Athletes not being happy when they make mistakes.

Everyone has to be happy for YuNa? I'm not.

sfjp330: Probably the best female skater performance in the history for Olympics event.

Did you see Oksana in lillehammer? That was very touching.

Yuna don't touch as much as she breaks records in points.

seesaw: Kim Yu-na..yay! she's got class! Regret Mao looks so sour-grape..but that's normal for J women. I was in the final for Kimono contest some years ago, and had witnessed how the J women behave at competition...they just cant be happy for others. I wish Mao had shown a better sporting spirits,... like Mirai Nagasu!

That is a very scientifically research. Thank you for posting this data.

I once saw a beauty competition with Korean girls. The K women all had plastic smiles on their faces. K women usually have very plastic-like smiles.

Too bad Mao tripped out. She will have to regroup for next season. Nagasu already the top US girl. wow

ptolemy:

Every single lady skating in this event has about the same chance.

Yu Na have won 9 of her 10 last competitions. After trailing 5-20 points from the SP this is not true anymore.

I think Yu Na will have to fall 2 times for any girl to catch up.

Even so, I would still be happy if Mao just makes a perfect skate. If she can't keep up after a perfect skate she will probably be happy anyway.

I'm simply assuming Yu Na will skate perfectly as well. I don't hope her to fall but looking at past olympic finals show that errors have made decisions before.

Yu Na will also make history if she takes gold. South Korea has never been better than 8th place.

I really liked that music Mao had on her SP. Yu Na's bond theme was really bad.

Bura really? I don't think any of the ladies are hot. Maybe one of the finnish skaters are but none of the Korean or Japanese. Nakano was cute though.

Posted in: Mao on Ice See in context

I saw a very good SP by Mao and her landing the triple axel should give her boost for the LP with two of those. I'm rooting for Mao because I like her more. Yuna looks kinda robotic and stiff with her facial expressions.

Yuna must have great confidence as she has won 9 of her last competitions. She has been practially unbeaten the last two years. It was strong by Mao to skate that good SP with all her expectations but it was maybe even stronger by Yu Na to go out there and top it.

I hope neither will fall in the free skate so they can be judged fairly.

As pointed out by many the favourite has not won in these past olympics for the women figure skating. Neither Lipinski, Hughes or Arakawa were the favourite at that time. But on the other hand no skater has been as dominant as Yu Na has been prior to the Olympics (I'm guessing).

Real props to Joannie considering her situation. I think she got maybe too rewarded. She is in fact very much a silver contender and why not gold if Yu Na falls.

Ando got a few trips downgraded. She will have problem to catch up even if she skates perfect.

Kind of disapointed to see Suzuki's level. I wanted to see Nakano instead but I guess the Japanese figure team has to be one of the toughest to make.

sf2k: actually, does the whale meat package come with its own mercury testing litmus paper?

You should be scared eating just anything from the sea NOT to mention from the ground as well. Ground don't have to be polluted from start we are eager to do it ourself. So please carry ur test paper all the time. Safety first.

smithinjapan: I bet if you asked this guy what he's protesting, he would have absolutely no clue. Furthermore, if you asked him what he's against, he wouldn't be able to sum it up beyond resorting to the usual 'so and so is against our heritage' or other crap that is so quickly shot down the guy would need an even bigger mask, sunglasses, and hat to walk away in shame.

And does he have to?

You certainly don't have a jizz about this issue since you yourself mixed up the word whalers in another thread, but you go tiger!

Since legality failed, intellect failed, SFJP now you are using another tactic?

Since when has there been a completely even share of any of the earths sources among the 200+ nations in the world?

spudman: You presume that whales aren't controlled by natural events, as was the case before the 19th century, there were plenty of fish in the ocean then. Your argument is the same one whalers use to try and get the greater fishing population to support their wasteful program. Wrong however. It was man over utilising the resource that upset the balance of nature, not nature.

Nature has never put itself in an unbalanced situation? Yea right!

Nature is probably the most feared exterminator.

Dilbert14: That's one of the thing Japanese "research" is trying to prove, with no success. They said Minke whales eat amazing quantities of small fish, but all the thousands they catch, proved one thing, they eat cryll.

So the research is actually happening.

Whales are not endangered.

Good for plushenko but mens competition is dull.

The women's competition will be super intresting with lots of young skaters from many countries. Yuna and Mao are almost veterans.

foxkenji: I love whales and I would do the same thing.

So you would risk your life and endanger others for a fish?

Why are humans so hooked on whales but not other animals?

I love killing whales. It saves millions of small animals.

Never knew about Akiko I thought there were only Ando and Asada and Yukari Nakano. Akiko must be new.

Totally missed the last years world championship. I'm gonna watch Vancouver though it will be super hard to win though. Yu na have won everything she competed in this year. Mao is definately the underdog here.

ahocchau: I have been in Japan 18 years and am a professional translator so my Japanese will probably suffice. And Japanese TV is horrible.

I'm guessing you haven't been watching other countries offer much.

I think Japanese TV is the best.
