Wow, I would like to see that 3A-3T Tatiana was talking about! Woot!

Swoon I love the choreography already! It looks like the program is very intricate and rich in transitions. Also, judging from the music, it looks like 3F-3T was is late in the program. I hope Mao doesn't loose stamina! Good luck!

I heard somewhere that Mao wants to do 3F-3T in the late of this program.
Plus, she said that she's going to keep moving in this program, so this program is gonna be such a tough but a unbeatable one if she makes it!
I love how she ends the program. Isn't it so passionate? Many Hearts

Wow, very risky! Mao has impressive stamina, but with the current strict rules even the smallest underrotation might cause the jumps to be downgraded.
I wonder how the final jump layout will look like. Maybe, if Mao will attempt two 3A:

3A-2T-2L
3A
3F-3L
3Lz
3S
3F-3T
2A

Because of the Zayak rule the final jump must be 2A because 3A and 3F are already repeated, so 3L can't be repeated as well. Or maybe 3A-3T and 3F-2L-2L would be actually easier (because in the first half of the program Mao would have more stamina) and more point-efficient (2L instead of 2T, with past half bonus applied to it).
With one 3A 3L could be repeated instead. And that's a jump layout made with thought that hopefully 3S will be by that time steady enough to put into the program.
WHat's scare is that there's a lot of challenging jumps, 3A and 3-3's because of their difficulty, 3S because of being quite new, and 3Lz because it's being fixed. No time to rest, really! WOW!

It's lovely. And I missed that spin position (the final one with leg in attitude). It's very pretty. Thumbs up!

There's a nice article with an interview translated at FSU:
http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=1890072&postcount=15

Quote :
Mao said, “As for the jumps, I was weak at Salchow and toe loop but she coached me concentratedly. She gave me advice to jump after doing a variety of steps. It became good while repeating it”.

Thumbs up!

I agree. I hope Mao will be able to handle this challenge! Good luck!

3S looks great now (the one in the recent video clip), I wish we could see 3A-3T. Love Hearts

Wow, what a great article! Tatiana is a great coach. I'm so happy to see that she can help Mao with jumps as well - people were saing that this is not TAT's forte and that she is better with the artistic side of coaching. But it looks like she can help with the technique too! flower

(Mostly the same interview with Tatiana and Mao, but some new practice clips at the end.)

Look at the great low sit spin at 02:42! Thumbs up!

I remember she did 3F-3L in the second half of her FR last year! didn't she? (although they were downgraded..)
Tarasova seemed to say in the video that Mao did 3A-3T in her practice, so this is gonna be her 3A combo? Then the final jump layout is gonna be..

..like your second expectation, I think!
I think she did one 3L in the mid part of the music. so maybe she doesn't try 3F-3L in her LP, altough she did it in her SP in practice!
If she makes these out, I will scream aloud! Worship
The current rule gets very strict, but I believe in Mao Good luck!

Actually, all of her 3F-3L attempts in the second half were good and got nice GoEs, except for the one at Worlds. I think initially Mao was just shocked and didn't feel the pain, but as the program went on, her adrenaline level subsided and she started to feel pain and fatigue. That's why she had problems with the spiral sequence and 3F-3L. It's very impressive that she went on despite of that!
Nobunari had an identical fall on his 3A in Four Continents Championships - and because he skated closer to the boards he slammed his head into it when he fell. Sad After that he got up, did a beautiful 3Lz-3T-2L - and then started skating around because the pain kicked in. He missed one spin, but eventually kept skating, nailed a perfect 3A and won the competition. Thumbs up!
I think things like that, like Mao at Worlds, prove that you should never give up! Thumbs up!

Quote :

I think the jumps she tried in the practice might be different than those in the final version of the LP. Maybe a 3Lz or 3S will replace 3L eventually, but right now Mao didn't want to do them in front of the camera because she waits until they are perfect? I think she would certainly like to show a cleanly skated program to the press first.
Just like last year, when bibi said that Mao was practicing 3F-3T at Skate Canada, but she put it into her programs only at GPF, when it became more consistent. Thumbs up!

You are right! With this unbelievable recovery, I re-understand Mao's mental strength is just amazing.
I love her 3F-3L next to her 3A! Love Hearts

I still remember that I was so shocked when I saw Nobunari crashed before he attempts his 3A in his LP at 4CC. One Japanese reporter, who wrote a book about figure skating, said in her book that "the most difficult jump is the one which comes soon after you failed." (I'm afraid my translation makes sense.. Sweatdrop ) Both Mao and Nobu cleared "the most difficult jump". That's why I admire Mao and Nobunari. Very Happy

Oh, Yes!

I'm not 100% sure, but I think I remember reading somewhere that she is supposed to be in Russia at this time, and Mao will follow her soon to practice in Russia. Smile

Mao will visit Russia in next October to see TAT, and both of them seem to go straight to Eric Bompard!

It's so quiet about the top figure skating recently~ Like a Star @ heaven

I can't wait for the season to fully start. I'm excited about Junior GP, too... but there are nearly no videos available! Lips sealed

I'm missing Mao's skating a lot... I've just rewatched all Mao's performances from 4CC and Worlds with all the commentaries that I could find. Too sweet!

I really look forward to the new programs, especially footwork... Swoon

Thanks for the correction, Erika... I thought it was October already! I must be getting old. Too sweet!

By the way, does anyone know when/where this photo was taken?



I found it by accident on a Korean forum, but as I can't read Korean, I have no idea what the description said. It looks pretty recent though (Mai is wearing her new EX dress and Miki is present). Smile
