It's so nice to see that beautiful combo back Many Hearts
It's nice and high, too! she's been practicing Very Happy
It makes you really wonder just what others jumps Mao may have down really well in her arsenal that we don't know of...
I thought it had nice height too, especially the flip!

And yeah, I bet she can do some ridiculous combinations and just throw them into practice like they're nothing...like when we saw that clip in the summer of her doing a triple loop-triple loop combination WOW!

Wow, that is crazy!! Practicing 3A and 3F-3Lo for a SHOW? WOW! WOW!

Well, I guess she is planning to do her 'Masquerade Waltz' SP as her exhibition. The last article I read said she hasn't decided if she'll do the 3A or not; I guess the 3F-3Lo is a back-up plan??

I don't think Mao ever stopped practicing the 3F-3Lo; in her interview from over the summer, she said it had really improved. But I guess, like people have already mentioned, that she couldn't put it in her short program without having to do the 3Lz or 3A from steps, and it was too hard to put it in her long program after doing two 3A's.

I can't wait to see Mao bring back that combo (and whatever other ones she wants to do!) next season! Happy dance

Thanks for the pics kirakira! So good to see Joannie smiling! Very Happy

Nice to see Mao's 3-3 again cheers

Btw, can someone enlighten me on what is considered a good sit spin? I've been noticing that Mao goes down more in her sit spins now than before. However, they seem more centered and since she's getting better GOE's on them, does this mean a lower position is better? scratch
I think in sit spin it is the lower the better.
And you could compare Mao's sit spin in 06-07 to the one she does after 07. In 07 summer,the rule was changed. What Mao did before would not be regarded as sit spin because it is not low enough. The angel between thigh and crus should be less than 90 degree.

Thanks for the explanation. flower

I don't think she will be doing 3A with step. She did it with Arutunian and it's so risky.

There is a blogger (who knows very well in figure skating and ISU rules) who said that she hopes the 3A will not be allowed instead of a 2A in the short program...why ? because she knows that since Mao will be the only who can take advantage of that, ISU will give more GOE to other skaters so they can catch up in terms of score.
(Interestingly, this blogger predicted that Lepisto would be on the podium at Turin even if Miki does well).

Interesting how the poster didn't say how the ISU didn't seem to have in mind to allow anyone else to "catch up" in scores this season... Rolling Eyes

When the ISU president tells reporters that he knows "very little about figure skating", we can be sure that things are not going right....Razz

At first, I thought, allowing 3A would be unfair to other skaters...but then after reading some of your points, I think many of them are valid too. Allowing something doesn't make it mandatory. Many skaters have trouble with 3-3's or even 2A (which is mandatory)- so is it fair to them to allow those who can do them to be so much up ahead? But the situation is that the JSU is rallying for Mao, so it's hard to get out of the "you're only doing this for the benefit of your own skater" criticism.

ETA: sorry this seems a bit off topic from the thread...

"High" sit spins was something Uncle Dick was particularly picky about alongside bad spirals, toe-pointing, and a weak free leg on the layback. Razz

Just a heads up that SOI is taking place *right* now (I'm currently following you-know-where's live commentary thread like a hawk) and that TV Tokyo/テレビ東京 will broadcast parts of today's show from 11:58PM - 12:53AM, JST. That's about two hours and half from now, for those who are interested in catching the broadcast on KeyHole TV! Very Happy

Hmm. I think I made a mistake with the schedule, my apologies. Sweatdrop
The Neo Sports program that is currently airing *will* cover today's SoI, but like Fuji TV's Sporto, it'll most likely just be a few minutes' worth of clips.

The actual SoI TV broadcast is on Sunday, April 11 from 7:54PM - 9:48PM JST. Sorry about that. Whirly

Thank you for the heads up, clovera Razz~

Thank you for the news and photo links as well, kirakira! flower

Caught Mao just in time during the news broadcast:

Like a Star @ heaven Mao looks gorgeous; had two costumes on: the pink one she wore during Japanese Nationals for Masquerade Waltz, and then a black one (which I've seen her wore once before during the 2008 off season). Check kirakira's photos!

Like a Star @ heaven went for the 3A but stepped out of it; the quality of the video was pretty bad so couldn't see if she made the revolutions. Razz But Mao LOOOKS GORGEOUSSSSSS. And her smile just lights up the ice.

Like a Star @ heaven broadcast only showed her 3A attempt, part of the spiral sequence and her final combination spin (same as the one used at the end of her FS again! One-handed biellman, even better this time) Love Hearts

Like a Star @ heaven broadcast then showed bits of Dai-chan and Kanako's skates. They only showed one of the jumps Kanako did (only recognized it as a jump needed toe-pick assist Sweatdrop) and it was HUUUUUGE. GREAAAAAT distance and beautiful flowing edge at the end of it. Somehow, the way she jumps reminds of of Yuna... Maybe it's the dress?

ETA: kirakira posted a link to the news already~~ You rock, kirakira! Thumbs up!

restricting ladies from trying a 3A instead of a 2A in the SP would be the equivalant of telling someone at American Idol that he/she couldn't sing a particular song because none of the other contestants could hit those kinds of notes and it would give him/her an unfair advantage..

Excellent point.

Thank you kirakira!!

Indeed, Mao was gorgeous! Cloud 9 And how cool is that, a 3A in an exhibition program! Granted, it was two-footed but whatever! Dance

As with previous years I think it's mostly going to be the EXs of the "big names" + the gala's opening and finale. Yep!
