    It's just not a European sport anymore.

    Wow! I'm impressed with Mao Asada. She skates fairly maturely for a 12-year old. And is she a beautiful little girl or what?

    Not impressed at all. Major telegraphing on the takeoff, major cheat.

    Her skating isn't perfect but she is 12 years old. Plenty of time to correct and polish her skating.

    I respectfully disagree. If she cannot make a full rotation now, then she will have an even harder time when she gets a bit bigger.

    I'm going to back peach up. She's very cute and obviously has a lot of potential, but her jump landings were mostly insecure and the flow out of them was very poor. She rotates in the air beautifully, a la Tara, but otherwise the rest of the jumps are nothing to write home about. The program is also totally front loaded and runs out of steam when it runs out of jumps. Her spirals are awful--not held, and her free leg is really bent. Again, she has potential, and it will be interesting to see how she skates once the "puberty monster" visits. I'll cheer more for that triple axel when its fully rotated, like Midori's or Tonya's were. She is quite a charming little presence on the ice, though. Great potential, but I wouldn't bet the farm on her now.

    there was a twelve year old kid from Homer last winter here skating and he had all but his triple axel from what his coach was telling me... he did an exhibition at the local "winter games" and he had a triple loop double loop... it was really cool... most of the others weren't doing anything but singles... I remember his first name was Josh... maybe someday he'll dethrone Timothy Goebel or something and I can say "I saw him when..." LOL

    Her technique makes me twitch. If she gets better technique and positions, then I'll be impressed. But the thing is, why do little girls keep pushing it? The poor thing won't be able to compete by 16, 17 if she keeps at it like this! That's what really bothers me most.

    That was my first thought Lanie. When will the injuries begin.

    Thanks for the link. There's been so much talk about the young Japanese ladies, I'm glad I finally got to see what it's all about.

    Adorable little thing, and sure brings a new name to jumping bean. I hope she doesn't jump herself into early retirement, but it certainly looks like she's got potential.

    For those skaters of you commenting, I realize that young, light, narrow hipped girls jump better, but how about when she matures a bit and gets a little muscle on that body. Will that help?
