I was just wondering what everyone thought of Mao's ability to complete a four rotation jump. Right now, after landing 3.5 rotations on a triple axel, do you think it is plausible to consider a quadruple jump for Mao?

Here is a video of her quadruple salchow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yEgPt-faII

Also, even if Mao has the ability to complete one, do you think she will attempt to use it in competition any time soon?
Personally, I have no idea what Mao may do or not...she surprises me every season with something bigger and better. I thought it would be interesting to hear other people's opinions~

cheers cheers cheers cheers Go Mao!!!! Love Hearts

One of the key point in this: if Mao wins the Olympics or not. If she does, she'll find her peace of mind, finally throw all that incredible pressure off her shoulders, and I think, in that case we might see even more amazing things from her than just ~some~ quadruple jump. Including some quadruple jump. Why not? Smile
If she doesn't... well, then not sure.

I totally agree with summervie, I think if Mao wins the Olympics next year, then definitely yes. Yep!

Because I think Mao wants to be the best skater ever. Thumbs up! And while she's done the triple axel like Midori Ito, and now she's done two to surpass her, she hasn't done the quad that Miki has done. And this was one of her goals when she was younger - other goals, like winning Worlds and the Olympics, may have taken priority, but I don't think this goal has ever gone away completely.

I also wouldn't be surprised to see her try the 3F-3Lo-3T again...why not?! Hell, no!

Go Mao! Cheering

Yeah! And after that maybe a quintuple throw, skating in pair with Hao Zhang (who at that time will be old, wise and lyrical as hell Lambiel). Laughing

P.s.
Not that Hao isn't lyrical now or something.

You know, after seeing him shake Mao's Aero doll at the EX, I *was* thinking, "gee, I wonder what would happen if he tried to throw Mao?" ROTFLMAO

Yes, it was a bit UR, though.

I think that Mao might challenge a quad again, but only if she's full form and has her other jumps consistent. Definitely not before Olympics! I could see her trying it in the second season after Olys, though - another good time to try something new. Woot! I think it would be really, really difficult - but not 100% impossible.

I think she will... but it's kinda not safe yet... in a few seasons maybe!

Does Mao even still train the quad?... I've been wondering if she'll ever do one in competition to. I don't think she's going to attempt it this year. Especially if she's going to do the 3A,3A again. Wow, that would be really something if she did them BOTH...
