thanks everybody fot the updates. From what i see i feel Mao confident and happy, and i´m happy asweel she keeps 3A, she can do it, and is not Mao to take the easy way, so it was predictable.

it looks that i´ll love SP love her arms adn she looks so artistic, WOW only few second but it looks so impressing, i just hope the costume take advantage of Mao´s beauty and don´t distract people from her skating.

one question, at what time (Japan hour ) will it be airing? is it posible that it will be aired at NHK international?

I am in minority but I'm not glad she is keeping the 3A in the SP. It makes no sense since it's clear she can't land it cleanly yet. It's pointless and it will hurt her score. From the videos, almost always her 3A seem 3A<<. I hope Mao will make me eat my own words, I really do! I'm just afraid of the media reaction if she is off the podium again. And her confidence too.

Mao looks great and trust me she's not unhealthy thin. I like her speed and jumps look strong to me, even with unstable 3a.

I also think it isn't smart strategy but it can also challenge Mao to not be fazed by mistakes on the 3A. In the past, this one jump took a lot of focus from her, so when she made mistakes on 3A, sometimes the rest of the program fell apart. But it seems Mao has been focusing on other elements and the whole program. If she has this mentality during competitions, then it won't matter what jump layouts she has. Even if she makes jump mistakes, she can recover quickly and perform the rest of the program.

I agree, you made a great point . Why Patrick can win with 3 falls?(well, I know the answer, but still). If she can do the rest of the program clean with high levels on elements and with good GOE,she'll be fine. And I don't know why but I'm not that nervous as I thought I would be. Mao looked so relaxed in practice, it seems she has her confidence back and that's the main thing. She knows what she's doing.

even if mao's 3A is a bt underrotated i the clips she may still land it cleanly i competition! and even if she didn't all her other jumps seems really stable they look really great... and as long as mao is in good condition i don't see anything stopping her delievering and getting huge scores that she does deserve after all the hard work and determination she has shown!

i feel really excitet and i can't wait too see Mao compete and show us her beautiful skating again can't describe how much I look forward to seeing her!!

by the way for some reason I might not be able to see eurosport live tomorrow which is why i would really appreciate if any free stream would be postet

Shikure posted the link on somewhere - and DAMN I love the start of the music!
It sounds a bit like the snow dance in the movie Memories of a Geisha! *_*
Totally traditional! Very Happy
(a kimono style costume wouldn't be that bad eh)

Anyway - I had my reservations with the 3A - If it doesn't hamper her other jumps - Then yeah...
Seriously - We are talking about Mao here!
The one who crashed after a failed 3A and still won gold in 2008 worlds!
I know she has been having her ups and downs - But she will come out of this! Smile
(Yes am totally being positive abut NHK!)
Best of luck Mao!

I really like your statement. Love Hearts If she follows through with this mindset she'll definitely be still able to carry out the program as the beautiful skater she is. Not that she did not do so before, but the mistakes in a way lingered throughout the program in previous seasons. I actually really believed she wasn't going to put the 3A in the SP because of an interview a week prior where she said this season she wasn't particularly focused on jumps, but now I know that what she said was true and I just interpreted it wrong. Her interviews now make me feel that we're going to get to enjoy these programs in it's entirety even if she makes a mistake or not.

And this is another clip (sorry if it's been posted already Sweatdrop). It's basically the same one as the NHK english ones that have already been posted, but I think it has a little bit of the morning practice at the end.

Ok as for the Live streaming, I remember kaarolcia last night (my time),
was able to watch the Same NHK Evening news I was watching over at NHK ch. 1/NHK総合
thru keyhole . So i pressume if you download keyhole you will have live access on all
Japan channels. Including NHK ch. 1

Honestly I haven't gotten any idea yet on any live streams or networks where you can also
catch it live. I live here in Japan so I can watch on NHK channel 1 according to live schedules
as it is. We have pay channel (CS HIKARI Cable TV) here at home, but do not have BS Pay
channel. So I'm afraid I can't watch Ice Dance Short and Pairs Short; Ice Dance Free and
Pairs Free; and even the gala Sad as we don't have BS.

The good news is if keyhole is working for those who live in abroad, i suggest that you
download keyhole in your computer to be able to do so. And I remember clovera once
wrote it in another thread on how to download keyhole and/or Tv Ants.
Here is the said thread for instructions:

http://www.maoasadaforum.com/t873-online-streaming-thread



I hope this helps you a bit Dani-Chan Smile
I am sure there will be other members here who will share some live streaming links later in
the day. It is still 9:50 am here more or less so still alot of time left till it starts.

this link on SportsNavi will also cover live reports for NHK Event, just check it out when the
broadcast time begins...

http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/winter/skate/figure/data/schedule_11-12.html

Aside from ISU Live Results page and some Tweeters live reports , i am certain there will be
more ways to watch coming, as the time approaches. Be sure to check your country's time
difference with Japan. And I wish you and everyone of us here that we'll all be able to watch
the telecast, esp. the Ladies SP tonite. Very Happy

Mao_Asada_sunrise, just like yesterday it's not video but they're posting updates on what the skaters did during their practice session. I used google translate on the page then refresh every 5 min or so... unless someone posts translations.

ET: Eh? It's saying Mao is wearing something purple...

Oh it was just reported that Mao's costume is a purple pants style! At practice though she was wearing the usual jogging suit.

第1組の時間が終了、続いて第2組の選手がリンクインです。

浅田真央はジャージを着ていますが衣装はパープルのパンツスタイルのようです。コルピは鮮やかなイエロー

And Korpi will wear a bright or light yellow costume, according to the jap. kanji above! flower
