    I definitely agree with this!

    Nope, she seems a bit too far behind to make up that kind of ground. Shizuka Arakawa is the only one who seems positioned to challenge for Sasha and Irina for the top spot.

    Oooo, Emily is now 7th overall at the lowest!

    Edit: Albeit with the top 5 skaters after last night's Short Program still to skate. :wink:

    Oh, I don't know, competing on the Olympic stage would be enough to reduce me to a nervous puddle of goo. :D

    Well, that's the end of that... Shizuka Arakawa just blew past her in the marks.

    Oh, me too, no doubt! I was just poinitng out that she didn't have a lot of other people's expectations riding on her the way that Michelle Kwan would have or the Sasha Cohen did.

    Sasha got 183.36 and Shizuka Arakawa is 191.34 - quite a large gap.

    Well, Cohen looks like she'll end up with the Bronze now... unless Kimmie Meisnner totally blows up the scoring or Irina Slutskaya tanks even worse than Sasha did (which seems highly unlikely).

    Does it strike anyone else as strange though, that a bronze medal *at the freakin Olympics* is seen as a poor result???

    not to mention even if you've won silver, it's considered that you've "lost" the competition!

    OK, Kimmie is now in 5th with only Irina left to dance, so Sasha has the bronze locked up.

    As a team the US did really well I think: 3rd, 6th, and 7th!

    You do end up with some interesting situations. I remember seeing a medal ceremony where the bronze medalist was crying for joy and the silver medalist looked completely devastated at not have won the gold. Then there are the countless athletes who never had a prayer at winning a medal yet who fulfilled a life-long dream by just being at the Olympics.
