    You go, Mao!
    She stepped out of her 3A, but otherwise perfectly clean program. What's more, she has her 3 toe back! She did a 2A-3T combo instead for her second 3A.

    Good for her! Much better than in Canada. Clean sweep for Japan here

    Wow Mao. She was 20 points ahead of Fumie. I can't wait to see her FS.

    Mao just set the new all time points record, beating Slutskaya's 198.06 at Cup of Russia last year. Will we see a 200 point program this year? :

    Do the Americans not understand the COP or are the girls just losing points?
    Mao scored over 60 points higher then the top American. They have to find away to up the ante.

    We're waiting for Flatt and Zhang to grow up.

    They have to start standing up on their jumps.
    I can't remember a season in recent years like this one for the US women ... pretty dismal.

    There would not have been such a runaway if Sasha had been skating.

    Just saying, since people love to retire her.

    ETA: Obviously Mao would have beat her - but not by 60 points!

    What is the point of going all over the world just to land one triple!

    Japanese sweep? Gee, what a shocker.

    Still, it's pretty tough to ignore that score by Asada. 199 points? She can easily win Worlds with a dupe of that performance. Come on Kimmie!!

    There would not have been such a runaway if Sasha had been skating.

    Oh yeah? How do you know that? She fell all over the place last year, just like most of the other US ladies are doing right now. But you're right about the Mao part. Remember Asada and Kim weren't at Olympics or Worlds last year, but barring injury you bet at least Asada will be there. (forget whether kim is of age). And with the Worlds in Japan it can either work strongly in her favor or against her.

    I never thought of it in that way.

    Please. She scored 181 in Worlds in February with what was generally considered (including by you recently) as one of her worst skates. Kimmie beat her there by less than 10 ponits. Mao beat her at last year's TEB by less than 8 points.

    Of course if you are now an international figure skating judge I'll have to reconsider my words.

    Asada's scores seem to have been entirely inflated. She stepped out of her triple axel, and two of her loops in combination were so underrotated they were downgraded to singles. Also, one of her lutzes was reported to be "shaky."

    And this is a skate that garners a monster 130 points? And the highest point total ever? Makes it hard to take seriously. I mean, I'm sure it was a great skate and all, but the scores seem ridiculous.

    A Japanese ladies sweep as predicted. Looks like Suguri and Asada are headed to the GPF.

    Are the protocols up already?

    Mao's skate looked very good for me. Step-out aside, I did not notice any mistakes nor shaky landings on lutzes. The last loop in 3-2-2 combo looked a bit suspicious, but with 3A out of footwork (even with a step-out it was impressive, no men are doing 3A like this), two 3-3s and 2A-3T combo (thumbs up for getting her triple toe back) even a downgrade would not hurt her score much.

    I enjoyed her performance, and now that she seems to have gotten her confidence back, I can't wait to see this LP (and SP as well) at GPF and Worlds.

    Fumie's LP (catch that smile afterwards!):

    Mao did very well but I'm not wild about the choreography of her LP - it has very little to do with the music except for a few extraneous poses - and I don't think at this point that she has the spark of temperament that the music calls for. I'm not sure why her marks were so magnificent. But she's still beautiful to see.
