Was Tonya's triple axel in her short program during her peak - 1991 - a solo or a combo? I'm pretty sure that one was the combo with the 2T but I can't remember... Sweatdrop

The articles claim she did a 3A-2T, but I guess she never did it in an international competition? Question

Here's a clip with Midori Ito's analysis! (I don't think this has been posted yet...)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkSQMrmiCFI

Again they're talking about Mao mostly - but this was more about whether she'd be okay or not. And Midori's response was basically that everyone has ups and downs and that hopefully her failure at Worlds would push her to do well at the WTT. Very Happy

And yes, I definitely Hell, no! at the shot of Mao and ~Taka-chan~ posing for pics together from the GPF. Many Hearts

Congratulations MAO!!!!!!!!! At this moment they're showing the MEN's SHORT PROGRAM of Patrick Chan - delayed telecast in Japan and I think they will show the Ladies' SHORT PROGRAM very soon. So, the team standing now is 1-USA, 2-JAPAN,3-CANADA, 4-FRANCE, 5-RUSSIA, 6- CHINA.

Incredible TES!
Maybe the step was called level 4.

Brilliant job Mao! Ugh, KeyHole TV is incredibly choppy so I'll probably have to wait for YT, but I'm very excited. Dance

Judging from the TES, it certainly looks like the SS received a level 4 (and I'm guessing the non-jump elements were all level 4 as well) Wub

Wow wow wow! GO MAO!! Confetti Happy dance

So this competition is considered a regular international competition, right? So Mao just got a new personal best??!

Congrats Mao! Good luck tomorrow! Cheering

So Nobu was 3rd in the SP, but Kozu was 10th?? What happened to Kozu?? WOW! And Patrick was 9th?!

ETA I just realized that Joannie and Miki got exactly the same score! Oh, that sucks for Miki (because the tiebreaker made her 3rd)!

Too bad the tiebreaker for the SP is the TES score (I'm wondering if her relatively-low score is because the 3-3 was DG, if she went for it like she said in the interviews).

Very excited to see the men's SP - bummer for Kozu/Taka-chan though. silent

This is something I also asked myself. The ISU is arranging this competition, right? So the scores are regulary counted I guess. Wow, this would really mean Mao has blown away her personal best and has found a good alternative to the 3f-3l!

MAOOOOO~~~~~ I am soooo happy for her!!! That was a beautiful 3A combo. I like it even better than the one she did at worlds.

This is a totally different performance from her. Her confidence simply exudes from her movements.

Nothing pleased me more than to see her lovely smile at the end after she took her final pose.

Her SP performance is up on YT:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuzSxkNHa9Y

Thanks to the uploader!! cheers

ETA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJZtZ8lI1wk (another one of slightly better quality) (ETA: just found out that the audio and the video is out-of-sync...)Razz - thank you so much to the people who uploaded the videos!!

Calm, elegant, serene! Fantastic job Mao. Cloud 9 It's so reassuring to see the quiet, lyrical pieces be just as captivating (and score well) as music that already has quite a bit of "drama" packed into them.

I've have never doubted MAO. She really needs this competition for reassurance to everybody that she is MAO ASADA, no matter what, she really performs/delivers in a very regal way that nobody can.

YT Vids (taken off GS):
Edit: malformed video ID. Very Mad For those who are curious about the men's performances should go to the Men's SP thread for the World Team Trophy over at GS for a direct link to the vids.

Crowd loves Joubert, that's for sure! ROTFLMAO I can't find any of the ladies SP (except for Mao's, but I'll keep looking). Kozu had a fall on the 3f and popped the 3A, which explains his low score. Tono opted for the 3Lz-3T instead of the 4T-3T. That said, his tech scores being lower than Evan is beyond me when both are clean - Tono has immaculate jump technique. His PCS, too...is... confused

HECK YES, she is MAO ASADA.
I like that line of yours, juliet. Putting it like that makes her sound like a real force to be reckoned with.
I think this program is the start of Mao Asada's fantastic comeback for the Olympic season.

((I had a very big MAO pride moment just now Boogie)) xD

I had a horrible day at Uni today, so seeing those results is like balm for my heart. Wub

Amazing job from Mao! Just a hair's breadth away from breaking the ladies' top SP score record, and that's without 3Lz! (and with rather conservative judging, I might add.) cheers
Mao looked so happy after she finished, aww. Wub

I watched Mao's performance linked above... The audio was not in synch with the video - it was hilarious to hear the crowd going bonkers before Mao actually did something. ROTFLMAO

I think this is the best quality video I could find so far:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBtBtxxhUmM

Look at 5:14! Mao hurt Nobu's hand when they did "high five"! Too sweet!

Miki and Nobu were so adorable in the K&C when Mao's score went up! Love I thoght Nobu will poke Morozov's eyes out with the flag by accident. Sweatdrop


Ouch, Kozu! Sad

Great job from Nobu! :rock: He was a bit overly cautious, with rather tentative jumps (especially 3Lz, the landing of which was slightly curved, as if he wanted to change the trajectory before launching 3T) and a bit slower overall than at Worlds. Still, a fine performance. I hope he'll get a program that will suit his speed more next season. I love the new positions in the change foot sit spin. A bit robbed on PCS, IMHO - at Worlds the English commentators raved about his skating skills and transitions. Still, it might be caused by the fact that he skated as the first one of the big guns and was slower and more tentative than usual.

Good luck in the LP! Good luck! Good luck! Good luck!

Thank you for the link!!!!
And, are the teammates allowed to sit in the K&C with the skater that just performed? Because it looked like Nobu kind of snuck over there right before they switched to replay!! >w<

I only watched Mao's and Nobu's SPs so far, but the entire team sat together with Nobu (they also snuck behind Nobu right before the replay) so I guess they did so for every skater! Yep! Avd while Nobu was the first to follow Mao to K&C, the rest of the team was just behind him. He got in there first, because he went to "high five" Mao while the rest of the team was still in the Japanese booth. Laugh

It's nice to see them support their teammates so much! Wub

BTW, Narumi Takahashi is so cute! Wub

WOW! Mao was so beautiful, so elegant with and incredible flow and body movement. And yeey for the level 4 on the step sequence! Nice to see team Japan supporting each other and also to see Morosov smiling after Mao's performance. Brian Orser wouldn't have done that...

GO TEAM JAPAN!
