news from Sponihi Annex

In addition to the summary about the practice on 7th, the report also talk about Mao's costume choices. It is reported that she brought 2 costumes for SP and FS respectively. For the Nocturne, she has both the SA one and GPF one. And it is very likely she'll wear one for the team event and the other for individual event. As for Rach2, she brought the GPF one and a new one. It is said that the new Rach2 costume was made in Japan. It's not for sure which one she'll wear for the Rach2.

Oooh... Please wear the new one Mao, I have to see it.  Worship 

And once again, a big  Thank you!  for the updates COHK.

I hope Mao will "wow" them in competition too not only with her 3A but also with her ethereal skating. Her effortless skating has a magical power to draw people into a different world.  Very Happy

Thank you! for the video.

I'm wondering who this Peter Schrager guy by Michelle is. He sounds like he knows not much about the figure skaters (other than Ashley) Well...can't expect too much from a senior NFL writer Unconscious

I was wondering too, because I was surprised that he didn't know Mao.  Hell, no! 
I googled his name and found this. It says he's Senior NFL Writer for FOX sports.

No wonder he doesn't know much about figure skaters. I know no one from NFL except "Bob Sapp."  Too sweet!

The news says Mao is practicing at Iceberg Palace, with the red-purple dress (as shown in the photo). She was practicing the SP Nocturne, and the jumps were going well, including 3A.

I like the photo when she's smiling at Coach Folle. Mao looked quite relaxed.

Thanks COHK! I like it too.  She looks clam and confident.  Razz

Mao wasn't in the opening ceremony. Well, I didn't see her. I'm guessing it's because she's competing the next day.

Here comes Morozombie's comment on Mao's SP  Many Hearts 

"Nocturne in 2006 was the perfect program for a young ingénue, full of lightness and joy--but this newer version, while still delicate and airy, has a certain wistfulness and poignancy in the choreography and performance: the Moment when Ms. Asada lifts one leg and holds her arms out at the high b-flat note, the pause in the straightline steps, the placement of the spins with the music...just beautiful. There's also a greater refinement and smoothness to Ms. Asada's skating now that adds that special something to her performance that wasn't quite there 4 years ago.

I've said it before and I'll say it again--Mao Asada was born to skate to Chopin. Chopin is perhaps the greatest ever piano composer and he particularly understood that the piano is so much more than a percussive instrument. Playing a Chopin nocturne properly on the piano requires a certain lightness and clarity of touch that transforms the piano into something as fluid and legato as the human voice...and fortunately for us viewers, Ms. Asada's skating, above all, evinces those particular qualities."
