I don't know if anyone has posted this already, but part of the Ladies SP press conference is up on YouTube.

Kana is adorable of course and Caro seems like a very charming and sweet person too.

Well I hope that Mao will do the best LP, is not important now the gold, if she go well, this will seem like bad luck, you know, reputation is really important. And I think that Mao even believe she only can beat Yuna with 3a, and I dont know, may be yes, Mao has not 3-3, not ratified yet in a long time if I remember correctly scratch . I am glad for Kanako, she is so sweet Mushy Love .

Mao, you can do it, we love you Thumbs up! Cheering

i feel like EVERY year there is some country style program (and not just in ice dance). and none of them are ever good. Sweatdrop i hope meryl and charlie never go that route anytime soon!

im watching ice dance but something inside me says DON'T. i know i'll be more upset afterwards. Drama!

Yes, it's 2008 COC. LOL I still remember the clip even after some years because I was really surprised. To be fair, it's not only her who complained about judges. There were other skaters who did so too. But I've never seen anything like what her team did, dragging a particular skater in to justify their claim and showed it on TV.

i don't remember her saying anything about not agreeing with the call (off to youtube to refresh my memory) but i remember her fans being upset with the call (as well as the obstruction from a certain skater comment).

mao, best of luck in the free skate. i hope you took this as another opportunity to learn from, mao. study

LOL as if Marina would let any of her skaters so something like that.

You can tell how much Kurt was rooting for Mao. He is one of her 3A's biggest fans. Kept saying it was such a shame during the 5 minute warm-up how she wasn't able to do a single 3A because other skaters would obstruct her path with every attempt Sad

Mao´s program was really good, I mean I hate the music, but it was even good, she was just nervous, I am more relax now Cool , and she looks soooo pretty Swoon

Osmond was incredible, and I love her program, I am her fan now Yep! , and what happened with Liza, she was doing so well, her 3-3 is the best and then the silly mistake
Ashley and Yuna today very boring, may be the music, is not my taste.

That's too bad. I suppose it's because the rink is smaller and all 6 skaters were equally struggling to secure their paths and spots to do elements. I think ISU should hold competitions only at Olympic-size rinks.

Kurt knows how difficult it is to do 3A in person. So he can sympathize Mao, I think. It's good to know there are someone on the commentary board who can understand and support a skater who attempts technically very difficult programs.

Although Mao is 7 points behind 1st, the base value for her LP is 10 points above Yuna's. Add to that Mao's passionate and expressive Swan Lake will give her good PCS points too. However, that's if she hits everything cleanly. She DOES have a chance of winning gold. Slight but existent.


ilovethai , thank you for your opinion.
I saw Mao's performance on YOUtube. I believe she will be higher and higher⭐ Tonight I am going to see SP on TV, clearly. I am looking forward to it. I really wanted to go to Canada to see World 2013 directly. But it is nice to see it at home, too. Mao, you always give us happiness and courage. Thank you very much for your existance. Arigato, MAO chan. Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven

Had trouble sleeping because I was worried for Mao and now I woke up to this... Sad However, I don't think it's that bad. 7points. She can still recover from that and land on the podium.

What I'm surprised is the popping of the loop. Is this the 2nd time this season she's done that? And the spin levels not getting level 4? Steps GOE less than 1.8? UR on the 3F combo? Mao gave too many points away. Sad

Do we have any interviews on Mao yet?

Ok, I woke up this morning, saw the result, I haven't watched Mao's skating yet but let me rant.

huh.....A deja vu....

I wonder sometime what Mao is thinking ? does she know she has to do something about nerves ? this is all about nerves. She looked so relaxed when she arrived and even confirmed that she was in top form. Mao needs help to get rid of nerves and reading books is not enough. I bet even Sato can't convince her in certain things.
Secondly, she has to decide what she wants: either skating her dream layout but risk her gold at Sochi and many podiums, or, skate an easier layout and win medals.

I'm quite sad and angry because in my eyes, Yuna did not do as well as we thought and the judges were ready to give Mao a high score but she basically threw her chance away.


(pls understand that I am ranting because, just like all of you, I love Mao and want her to do well)

I can understand you, ddmm. I feel the same way. She can consistently get all level 4s but today what's wrong with her spins? And even when she's nervous and made mistakes she still got 1.8/1.9 GOE on steps but not today. That's aside from the UR on the flip and popped loop. She gave way too many points away. The loop alone will put her in second/first here. The Satos need to calm her down before taking the ice. She wanted to go clean on her elements here but what she did was far from clean. She may smile but we all know she's not happy deep inside.

Just watched the video to Mao's SP. It was not a bad performance. And despite the 2-ft, the 3A had great height. Too bad about the loop. I am more worried about her flips. She really can't afford to get UR on her flips in the LP. I actually thought her spins were better than at 4CC. They were faster and the positions were held better. I loved the minor changes made to the first spin. Smile
I also thought Mao was skating a little faster today than before. She seemed to be rushing a bit maybe due to nerves. I think she needs to relax a bit for the free skate and not feel too pressured. Hopefully, she improves on her placement from last two Worlds; a podium finish is still within reach.

You have a point there. The judges seemed fair in a way. We all thought that Mao would be unfairly judged, but this also came as a surprise.

I read in interviews that some skaters said the ice on the main rink is softer than the sub rink. IIRC, Mao did run-through without jumps and did some jumps including 3A at the main rink when she arrived London. Then, she had costume practice at the sub rink where she reportedly landed one 3A out of 5 attempts.

As helen posted above, Kurt said Mao wasn't able to do 3A during warm-up.

It's obvious she looked way nervous than usual.

Also, the ice condition may not really ideal for her. So she couldn't do well with spins. About the loop, I read somewhere Mao said after SP her left leg was facing a wrong direction before take off so she messed it.

I assume other skaters are also struggling with ice condition, like Liza and Amodio who lost the edge when they attempted spins.

I wonder if there will be practice at main rink before FS. I do hope she will have a chance to get used to with the main rink. Does anyone know?

Yes, there's another practice in MR before Lady's FS.

Preach it baby, preach it!! Thank you!

Guys, how do you all think Mao's gonna do in the LP and how is the ladies contest gonna finish? I'd love to hear what you guys think..

P.S.: I've calmed down since watching the last SP group. All my friends today were wondering why I looked so depressed.. if only they knew

And this is why you try not to do TOO well at the beginning of the season. Cause your condition deteriorates by the latter half of the season. Then there's still World Team Trophy after Worlds and if Team Japan fails, their hopes for winning the gold at the team event in Sochi (which i'd like to happen very much) will also be dashed.
