Shizuka Arakawa wins gold! -vwv

Japan's first Olympic figure skating wonder the radiant smile.
Her free skate was flawlessly beautiful. She has improved since the last time I saw her skate, not as mechanical as before and smiling much more. I would have loved to see more triples and triple-triple jumps but it was very good as it is. Well done!

My greatest fear has come true, poor Sasha is still unable to break that pattern of making mistakes at critical competitions. Still, besides the fall, the rest of her program was quite remarkable, typical of what I would expect of Sasha Cohen. At least she didn't go home empty-handed like back in Salt Lake.

Ah, Irina Slutskaya, quite the veteran on the ice. She did pretty good but too bad it wasn't her day as well. I thought age would have caught up with her but it looks like I am mistaken. I don't expect to see her in 2010. I sure am going to miss her triple-double-double jumps.
