    It's a curse which can only be lifted by kicking out the all the current KSU heads.

    Can't we do a ritual ceremony (how do you translate 굿) with the KSU officials' heads instead of the pig's head (jk... maybe )

    A glass half full person would say: Haein and Young both rocked their free skates and safely got two spots, but I am a glass half empty person and is still frustrated that the total was 14... (deep sigh) But awesome jobs ladies, I am very, very proud of you two

    I can personally testify that Edeas have some issues (perhaps not everyone has these issues though). I've been struggling with them for quite a while due to defects in the boots (ask skate techs if Edeas have a lot of defects and see what they say).... I'm trying to switch brands now but nothing really fits my feet which means that I need customs. Depending on your feet it can be really tough to get the right boots and you may find yourself constantly going back to your old worn out boots while waiting to get the next pair of new boots that will probably end up not working out.

    What I've learned from skate techs is that our bodies will correct for a certain amount of imperfection (defect), but some Edeas are so bad that it is too much to compensate for and it can really come down to the degree of imperfection, boot size, boot model, and foot type for what situation you will be dealt. Some are luckier than others, but it does not surprise me to see the problems and injuries that skaters are experiencing.

    Lim and Bell

    The original thread on this subject in the Edge was closed until further "official" reports are released. Everything now is coming from Lim's management company. Please refrain from discussing until official reports are released by either the skating federation, ISU, or official statements from the skaters.

    Should any official information be released, we will open the thread for discussion.

    This is in keeping with the Guidelines regarding speculation, gossip, rumors, etc.

    Thanks for your support!

    Eunsoo kicked some serious derriere today! I would be over the moon with a bronze medal but I'll be happy with a top 5 finish or a clean free skate.

    I hope this isn't breaching the above warning, but when did the collision allegedly happen? Before or after the short? If before, it's impressive she (and Mariah) could muster up some pretty good performances!

    It was before. The last groups in the SP was also competing late in the evening, so there hasn´t been any training afterwards, except maybe they just have started now because it´s morning now. You could also see that Eunsoo had a kind of bandage under the pantyhose in the SP. She was injuried, but you couldn´t really notice it because she was doing great
