But we have to admit. Today she was simply outstanding! i want to see this Mao tomorrow. Hopefully for GPF she'll change the costume for her SP.

Mao should be comfortably in first. WOW. That must be the season's best short program score from anyone! And I fully expect that Swan Lake to blow everyone else's programs out of the water tomorrow!

British eurosport guys are making comparison between Mao and Akiko's program, saying why and where Mao was better.
Akiko in 5th place, but I am calm, she will be back after this SP and the scores are close. I have no doubt she will pass Elene, Ksenia and even Mirai

Imagine what score she'll get if she puts 3-3 in the short. And if she skates the same tomorrow, with confidence and no mistakes, her score should be well in to 130!

I'm warming up to her short more and more, and I love how she expresses herself on the ice! Finally she's getting some love from the judges.

Mao's PCS aren't great. Low 8 and high 7. She got this score thanks to her strong quality elements which probably earned good GOE. The judges clearly aren't loving this program. She didn't break 8.5 for a single component and got 8.04 for her skating skills. I might say she was actually underscored.


People keep put emphasis on the 3-3. But most ladies do 3T-3T, which is 8.2
A 3F-2L is 7.1, so only 1.1 point less which is nothing. So a lady with 3T-3T, 3Loop and 2A isn't that much ahead, technically, compared to Mao's layout. It's another story with 3F-3T or 3Lz-3T

I noticed that too, her PCS was really low here, through she did everything perfectly, but it's fine, that way the haters can't complain about it, i want to see the protocols!

Her PCS here is still higher than Ashley's at SA and TEB. Which is always good.

Yes, but breaking 8.5 in the SP is very rare. She got 32 in PCS, for the short program that's a lot. If she received those scores in the long program, then I'd say the judges aren't loving her program.

Yay for Mao! Looks like neither she nor Mirai got < on any of their jumps! Cool cheers

I'm loving Mao's step sequence. The music still isn't my cup of tea, but Mao makes it work anyway! Love Hearts

Here is the protocol: http://www.isuresults.com/results/gpjpn2012/gpjpn2012_Ladies_SP_Scores.pdf

The jumps were clean flower
Steps level 4, like in China
You guys made me feel better about her scores. The 8.04 for SS annoyed the hell out of me

Mao was soooooo wonderful Dance Daisies for you Many Hearts

I loved her reaction at K&C for the score.
To be honest, I'm disappointed that she didn't change her costume.
I hope she will wear a dress which will make her look more mature in this music.


I'm so shocked when Akiko popped 3lz ... Depressed Crying
I know she was concerned about edge call. It's sad to see how edge calls can ruin skaters confidence...
