Shin Amano is the technical specialist for this event...

Sigh, hope he will be at least consistent

Hope Mao's injury isn't serious!!!

Why is he the technical specialist for every big competition? confused
He was at 2010, 2011 and 2012 worlds. Now at GPF also. I am sure he will be at worlds too, again. I find it strange

No, if he is a tech specialist here I doubt the put him at Worlds, so it's good, But at 2012 Worlds he wasn't so stupid as usual.

Thanks polosatik for link and Jason is with such up-lifting personality that even he faced those thing LOL

I am curious about Cat in Dai's room!!! didn't see that on Japanese media.
Well, I don't know where it came from. But it was translated by Russian member, who speaks Japanese and is in Sochi right now, she pointed it from FujiTV. teyty http://www.liveinternet.ru/users/vellena/post251147121/page3.html
Dai:"At night,cat came to my room and looked at me for a long time, still didn't get where he came from" ROTFLMAO
Taka:"Cat was sitting in the corridor and scornfully waited when we would get away from the carpet..most likely wanted to lay down." Too sweet!
And here is apic of Tanya with a cat, maybe he is that hero? Laugh

Good to hear that Mao is saying that the ice here looks like the one in her home arena. She also noticed that the arena is quite hot.

Sato, thought reminded her that the ice is lower towards the corner so she must adjust her speed.

Shizuka also commented that ice is different in every competition and the skaters are used to ajust their speed, the way they jump, etc according to it.

I can't wait till tomorrow.
Will there be any stream ?

Come on ISU, is he the only tech specialist available?! Very Mad At least do us all a favour and assign him to men's competition for a change. I hope this means he won't grace us with his "judging" at worlds.

I hope as well, that he'll be consistent. I wouldn't mind that much him being strict or unfair, if he was all those things to everyone and not just to select few. Mad Evil or Very Mad

Someone posted a audience view of Mao's Swan Lake from Cup of China. After watching the performance from this view, I really gained a new appreciation for it. Watch the speed of the first half of her step sequence! I think this is like the case with real ballet performances, one really needs to watch it live to fully appreciate it. Best wishes to Mao at GPF. Hope she skates this program to its potential.

Regarding the SP costume, unlike most of us thought, I think Mao was already planning from the beginning to wear this orange one. In a recent interview, she said that she wore a similar orange costume with pony tail for her first senior competition in China and this time, she wanted to remind herself of how she used to be.

Shizuka also said that one of Mao's best quality is her twizzle. She said that not many skaters can rotate fast, on both way and keep a balance.

TAT was interviewed and she said that she wants Mao to go for 3A. She also said that she's a big Mao fan! Encore

According to the practice schedule:
http://www.isuresults.com/events/GPF1213_ColouredTimeSchedule.pdf

During the practice on Thu, the skaters do both SP/FS. But for the practice today (Fri), it's only SP.

Hey everyone. This isn't a practice video - it's the last time Mao was at the GPF! Wasn't she amazing Very Happy? Let's all wish her good luck.
