PostSubject: Mao's 3A at 4CC and Worlds   Mon Apr 07, 2008 12:32 pm

When I was watching 4CC and Worlds, I had an impression that her take-off became more powerful than before, obviously compared to those at her younger ages, but also compared to her GPF. Mao's take-off used to be really light and easy when she was little. But now it looks closer to men's take-off in terms of the force and powerfulness. I also feel that she remains on that outside edge a bit longer than before until it becomes really deep. I also had an impression that she takes off more straight on the curve with less pre-rotation on her take-off edge. I couldn't tell if she gets more height or rotates faster than before.

These are just my impressions. What would you think? Have you yourself noticed any changes?

I definitely noticed changes in Mao's jump technique, not only on 3A but on all jumps, particularly 3F-3T and 3F-3L. The jumps are more powerful now and get more height.

I was really impressed by Mao's 3F-3T at Worlds, initially I thought that this combo would be difficult for her to master. While the loop combos are extremely difficult because they require perfect timing and edge control (which Mao has), the toe combos might be also tricky because of the need to keep the edge steady, maintain the speed and re-power the jump using a somewhat different set of muscles than in the loop combo. One needs to have strong muscles to achieve that, and because Mao hadn't been jumping toe-loops for a long time, and also grew recently (therefore needing more muscle power to launch the jumps) I was a bit worried.

It seems that Mao overcame he difficulties splendidly, though! Thumbs up!

I agree with you, Mao's jumps definitely look better and higher! flower

I'm actually having a Mao wirthdrawal. I would love to see some new clips... But it's important to rest as well, so we just have to be patient! Yep!
