She did???? Shocked I must have missed her performance then...because when I saw Alissa skating, I thought they were only inviting the top 4s to perform. (Arghhhh...)

How did she do? Razz

She did 2A, 2A and 3F just like in TEB.
She messed up her second double axel but she lands the 3F. Very Happy

just watched the nbc broadcast w/ paul wylie commentating. he thought the music was very dramatic and too heavy for mao.

he did say some nice things about her deep edges and extensions.

while on the K&C, you can hear tat telling mao "work, work, work & rest". mao nodded while looking down at her hands.

Here's Plushys EX :

One 4T and three 3A...just amazing ! I don't like him so much at all, I think Stéphanes choreographys, spins and steps are much better, but Evgenis jumps...just WOW!

And there are you polosatik at 6:34, aren't you !? Very Happy

I attended all three days of Rostelecom Cup and I must say that this competition was really tough for Mao and all her fans. Nevertheless, I am really happy that I had a chance to see Mao live. And she is so beautiful! I kinda love all of her performances... So, I am not upset that she is not changing her programmes. Maybe, in Masquerade she was a little bit slow and the music was too "loud" for her soft style of skating, but for me it was a rather good performance (instead of those double axels) and new pink dress really suits her. I don`t like pink, but this colour tone was beautiful. And I really love "Bells of Moscow". I don`t know, maybe, it`s because I love Rachmaninoff music and I was listening to it a lot, but I like this programme the most, even more then Caprice. This performance was frustrating and I was in shock when she failed her 3a combo and doubled single 3a, but I enjoyed it. The music is powerful... You know, there were so many girls with light soft music and their skating was beautiful and flowing, but for me they were all the same and Mao was different. So, the programmes are not bad and the PCS marks are the highest, and I think that her main problem is her nerves, because she can jump those axels. She did it many times at the warm-up. Maybe, she should work with the psychologist... I suppose that she doesn`t need to do many changes in her training situation, but she needs a very good japanese sport psychologist and a jump specialist who can work with her in Japan. Thats all.

olive, i appreciate you saying you like the music. i too like the music. it is different and it makes a statement. my only thing is i wish it wasnt so monotonous. its a one note piece. if mao likes the piece she needs to OWN it. play up the drama more and BE the music. bells of moscow is dark, foreboding, mysterious as if the bells are ringing on a dark stormy night. it is doom and gloom. maybe mao should be in all black with dramatic makeup.. goth on ice. she should use forceful hand gestures and really SELL the program.

the thing is if she nailed all her jumps people would love this program. ok maybe not love but the music wouldnt be an issue.

Cheering Thank you so much!! You just made my day!!! Miki looks so beautfiul!! I think she should put her hair down when she performs her FS, it will give more of an impact to her overall performance as she is portraying Cleopatra. Lovely pictures!!!
Love

YEAY!!!!!! Very Happy I am very very happy to hear that. She DOES NOT need to change ANYTHING!!!! She has everything best for her right now. Only thing she needs right now is to get confidence back. Do not listen to anybody except who really cares about her. We will support her all the way!!! The music, dresses 3A EVERYTHING is perfect for her. Just KEEP on going with your initial plan, MAO!!!! Do not let anybody shake your confidence!! They try to shake you up by denying your music, coach, dresses everything you have decided to have!! No, we are happy WHATEVER you decide and we love them all.

She will be back. I know so!!!

i just hope she will come back in time for the olympics. i want yuna and mao to skate their best. can you imagine how exciting it would be? a nailbiter. i always remember 02 games when sarah hughes won. she had no pressure and had nothing to lose and she skated in the moment and looked like she was skating from the heart.

everyone i apologize. it has come to my attention that i have brought up yuna too many times in this forum. i did not mean to offend anyone or be insensitive. we are all sad for mao right now but we also have to accept reality. as they say, there are no mistakes in life. mao should realize this too. always something to learn from.

peace and i apologize once more.

Thanks Olive so much for the report! Very Happy
I think you feel like I did at Worlds--it was a heartbreaking performance for Mao, but it was a pleasure to see her anyways. She's soo beautiful! Love Hearts

It's nice to hear that Mao's performance stood out because of the music, but I am still not convinced it's the right music for Mao. Maybe if I was lucky enough to see it live, that would change my mind. Hell, no!

dlnnyc - you don't have to apologize for bringing up Yu-Na; comparisons always seem to be inevitable! flower

thank you batsuchan. apparently someone (who shall remain nameless) is taking such offense to my posts. i got a 2nd private message about it. the thing is i wasnt comparing yuna and mao. all i said is i want both of them to do their best because it makes it that much more exciting for the fans. and can you imagine what it would be like at the olympics if there were neck and neck?

thanks again.
