Reason: adding Caro!
I love these! Excellent.
With Miki it's crazy to see how consistent the 3Lutz/3Loop was in her SP all year long!
Also interesting is that Miki didn't do the Beillman at Worlds (but DID in every other SP performance of the year) and that SP got the highest marks of the year! The performance DOES count.
Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
For ladies, while Kimmie's and Miki's programs hadn't changed much, Mao's LP seem to have changed really a lot. She seemed to have dropped much of the choreo before the first difficult jumps so that she could have more speed and be more focused. And then she seems to have added more choreo during the rest of the program. Her moves hit the music much better in the Worlds than before, so I found her Worlds' performance most pleasant to watch. For her SP performances, I liked her SA performance the best in terms of artistry; she had more time to absorb the music. But perhaps she needed to create more time for spins to increase points.
I've found Caro's SP newly posted. So I added it above. Enjoy!
LOVE LOVE LOVE that program for her. So perfect. I had no idea she had skated to the same music 4 years ago! Its interesting to see how she's matured and her skating has become more refined. I'm so glad she gave the music another try becase the new version of the program is a masterpiece!

These match so well with her skin tone. Among the costumes she wore in these performances, I especially liked light blue ones: 2007 Euros and Worlds, 2003.
