Now that Kanako Murakami is moving to seniors, how do you think she will fare? She certainly has some of the toughest competition in her home country . . . Will we see her at Senior Worlds next year?

I don't think she will make senior Worlds yet, but I also think she's well aware of what she needs to improve upon and that bodes well for her (rather than, for example, sitting in the kiss and cry and rolling her eyes over the supposed low marks...) Asada and Ando are almost locks once again, and I hope that Suzuki feels comfortable with her programs and continues to improve. Kanako could possibly sneak in for third and get to skate in her home country for Worlds, but I think she just needs a little more time.

Ask me a question about figure skating!
