Yes I am just afraid her 3Loop will get -GOE because it was a break before the take off and the judges are hard on the rule with the preceding steps. But other than that she was clean and sharp. To be honest the program needs to grow on me, but she is really selling it well
She is in second Evil or Very Mad but virtually tied with Julia

Mao is in second place with total score 62.89. TES: 31.83 and great PCS: 31.06.
There is a very small difference between her and Julia only 0,17.

But she's got sky high PCS for a season debut from a relatively inconsistent skater! Good start Mao!

Kiira could get good PCS as well... If she lands everything, she could move ahead of both Mao and Julia, but she's really no threat for the FS.

It was so nice to see a genuine big smile from Mao at the end of the skate. Very Happy

The good side is that I expected a bigger difference between her and Julia. Mao has a gorgeous LP and the PCS difference will be bigger in the LP. Since Mao used to lose the competition in the SP, this is a great start for her

Kiira with a 3T(turn)-2T is only 2 points lower than Mao on TES. I want to see the protocol

Oh well, down in 4th, Kiira goes. Both good for Mao! She couldn't have done any better at this point.

Can't wait for the videos!! Off to work with me (eugh, it's 6:50AM...)

On a side note, the top 5 seems to have skated very well. Happy for Zijun Li!

I'm also ecstatic that Mirai is performing strongly. There's something unique about Mirai's skating that I don't get at all from her compatriot Ashley...she's more "natural" and less "robotic" IMO.

So Mao got a < on her 3Flip. I actually thought it was clean Crying or Very sad
Judge 2 gave -3 on her combo(which is equivalent to falling!!) and PCS between 6.25-7.50. I wonder the nationality of this judge...

It's good Mao skated relatively clean in the SP. Her PCS is the highest so far in the GP so that's another good thing. I was actually expecting more so lets see where she got dinged in the TES. CoR last year where she went clean but not all at level4 she got 64+. Let's wait for protocols.

Honestly, I'm so far not into this SP yet. Looks juniorish for Mao with the costume and ponytail.

I like to see her in orange with ponytail then in China...she really wants to get back to the start...her debut of her senior career.
But I would like her to have different ranking then comes back on top after FS...just like her training-mate did in SA..GO MAO Cheering

OMG, I'm so happy! Boogie Yes Mao is in second, but look at the PCS! Finally, she's getting the PCS she deserves. That being said, WTH is wrong with the judge number 2?! He gives Mao -3goe for < flip, but gives Yulia +1 goe for 3Lu which got e. Suspect

IMO, Yulia (if she skated the way she usually does-through music, no emotion) should be happy with this score, her PCS in this cased is generous.

I can't wait for youtube links.

And thanks to everyone for posting links and news! Thank you! Daisies for you

I think Mao's SP this year is not good.
And when it followed Mirai's Jazz, also seemed to be inferior to.
And the song is not related to movement as well.

Compare to tomorrow's Swan Lake, the masterpiece of this year,
I felt sick with that.

By the way, congrats to Mao's 2nd place.

well i think the most important thing is that she set herself well for the free skate, it was a joy to see Mao skate, funny how no matter what is given to Mao she will still make it work and enjoyable, love the linking steps here and there! I LOVE YOU MAO can't wait to see her gourges swan lake, i think i will go rewatch the sp again!

I thought I was the only one who thought, upon seeing the YT link (thanks a lot roma and supportmaoasada!), that something was off about Mao's SP. I don't know if it's the music, or her costume (I wish she just wore shorts or something black!), or the choreography. But it is just not the Mao I was expecting to see; she hadn't sold it as much as what I would have wanted her to.

I love the ponytail on her! But if it fits her SP is something I can't determine for now.

I should blame her LP. I was so expecting the SP would be as awesome as her LP, but it seems Mao's SP is always her weak point.

BUT if her scores are this good for this SP alone, I can't just wait what her LP score would be! I can't wait. Hopefully the pressure won't get to her. :-)

Thank you! Worship I love the footwork sequence.

I agree, the overall look is juniorish, I wish Lori would give her a more mature choreography, playfull, but not so 16 year old like. But the footwork sequence is fantastic though.
I hope Mao will be able to skate lights out tomorrow, and make the Swan lake really shine. I think this year it's reverse, usually TAT "underperforms" in her choreography, but this year it's Lori.
Mao please go to Dickson and/or Camerlengo!

i think Mao skated this program with the right feeling, her energetic approach fits the music perfectly, but I also think that lori could have been a bit more creative here and there but overall i am satisfied. i found myself singing to the music when MAo did her steps and even after lol

I think the step sequence captures the feeling of the music and her skating is SO GOOD that it actually works in a way. It's not a masterpiece, it's a bit generic, but it is not juniorish. I have never seen a junior with her skating skills. I admit though, her trying to pull off the O faces(at the beginning) were cute and funny because we know this is not her. But she is trying and I found it cute Very Happy

I quite enjoyed Mao's SP. It was different from the stuff she's done before, and she showed more speed and energy than recently - which resulted in great PCS so early in the season.

I think it's still a work in the progress. I noticed that Mao dropped certain elements in choreo and changed positions in spins when you compare this SP to what she did in the practice. For example, in the practice she did a dnut spin, in the actual SP - a simple catchfoot. She also did an illusion spin as a feature in her CCoSp in the practice clip, but she omitted it today. I think she needs more time to adjust to the changed spin rules.

I think the motto this season is to co cleanly first, then add the little details. I think this program will look much more "Mao-esque" once she polishes the individual elements and improves the spins. sunny The strategy seems to be working so far! study

I think the costume will be changed later. It's quote lovely, but Mao grew taller since she had it designer for her, and now it's a bit too short, which makes Mao look coltish and younger than she is. In the interview they said that Mao had a new costume created, not that she went back to an ld one - I think they might have started making a new one, but it wasn't ready in time. Smile
