Meissner comes up short in world championships
Ando wins women's title
The Associated Press

Originally published March 24, 2007, 8:44 AM EDT

Defending champion Kimmie Meissner (Bel Air) of the United States finished fourth at the World Figure Skating Championships on Saturday, scoring 180.23. Miki Ando won the women's title, leading a 1-2 finish for the host country with Mao Asada second.

Ando didn't do a quad but her seven triples to a violin concerto by Mendelssohn gave her the total overall score of 195.09.

Asada won the free skating but was just fifth entering the free skate and scored 194.45 for second overall.

Kim Yu-na of South Korea, who led after the short program, was third with 186.14 after a disastrous 30 seconds in the middle of her routine.

The championships ended with the gold medals spread among four countries. France's Brian Joubert won the men's.

China's Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo won the pairs and Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski of Bulgaria captured the pairs.

To Sk8r Girl,

I am certain that the world is very happy to be able to grab some of the medals in the world. I have just read that Plushenko's delay back to the competions will be delayed because of a broken ankle. So you know some Russophobes will be jumping with glee like the deformed and demented Rumplessktilskin, but it might be a good thing.
It will give the world another chance to grin and gloat and maybe four other countries will get a gold next year.

Of course those with the Russian coaches will forget immediately who coached them, but it is still three years until the Olympics and who knows what will happen.

I will be following the career of Domnina and Shabalin and Khoklova and Novitski. I haven't seen much footage yet, but I am watching the repeat of the original dance as the news coverage begins it's spiel into the ice dance.

Years ago I used to wonder how the commentators were so smart they could predict the winners. Of course they can't, they commentate in an edited version of coverage after the fact. So here they are showing the medal winners in their blurb before the coverage.

It's a disappointment but with a strange sense of optimism which I can't explain.

I think you have watched a lot more of the coverage than I have. But can you see how the level of figure skating has been raised since the Russians have been coaching in North America and the world en mass for the past 16 years. The young icedancers white and Meryl something who are not yet 20 but they have been together with the Rusian coaches for 10 years.

Too bad the Russian skaters couldn't have had their own coaches coaching them for 10 years from the time they were 8 or 9 years old. And so many Russian skaters are skating in other countries for other teams. There are a lot of phoney wins for the world I think. But I still think this situation is going to iron itself out.

I just can't stomach RussoPhobes, who can't admit that this intense coaching by Russians for over a decade and a half has made such a difference. It's a double prejudicial thing, on the one hand slyly eager and glad that the Russian coaches are coaching the north Americans and the world and on the other hand denying the huge contribution made by them.

It is good to blog with a person who can understand and is grown up enough to be truthful and mature at the same time.

Oh Well there's always next year. I think it's time to go to "Blades of Glory" and just have a geat laugh and a lot of fun.
