Ah so one of my predictions did come true, Mao Asada of Japan won the lady’s competition at the World Figure Skating Championships. Bravo Mao! I knew she would be World Champion one day the first time I saw her skate as a Junior back in 2004.

But he did, proving that beautiful edging and musical expression still have a place in this sport. Who would have thought it? Bravo Jeffrey!!
Here they are the new world Champs:
