  • I don't get it why ISU is organising World Championships in Figure Skating in the same year as Olympiuc Games. Many atheletes have already withdrew: Daisuke Takahashi, Patrick Chan or Meryl Davis and Charlie White. I suppose that many others also won't take part in it :whistle:

    World Chamiponships are every year ^^

  • What a comeback by Mao Asada after Olympics. After 4 years She broke Yuna Kim's World Record in Short Program from 78.50 to 78.66 ! Behind Her are Karolina Costner with amazing 77 and Julia Lipnitskaya 74.

    In such form Asada will break whole Kim's Records.

    Costner is as wine- the older the better.

  • Olympic Champion Yuzuru Hanyu won World Champion Title after very very emotional fight with 282.59. Tatsuki Machida got Silver with 282.26. Bronze for Javier Fernandez.

  • Mao Asada won World Champion Title. This time without World Record in Long Program 138/150, overall 216/228. Silver went to Julia Lipnitskaya with 207, Bronze for Carolina Costner 203.

  • Mao was amazing indeed! But even with so many mistakes in free programme Carolina was still my fav. All time fav :heart: Glad to see her taking the bronze in the end. I'd say I breathed a sigh of relief... ;) The programme to "Bolero" music is so beautiful! :rolleyes: Commentators kept saying she's ending her career... Can't be ;(
