I don't know whether it is wise idea for Mao to pursue two 3A and all five triples at the same time. If she really wants to keep two 3A program, she should ditch her salchow. Personally I think it will be really unwise move if she keeps trying two 3A program. In 2005 nationals, she landed twp 3A but lost to suguri. There should have been lesson learned from that experience.
Adding salchow to her arsenal makes sense only when she tries one 3A because in this case she would need only one 3/3 combination instead two.
Also what is Mao's plan on 3F/3T? It looks like Mao doesn't pay much attention to 3F/3T and it's very surprising because this combination can be most valuable asset for her , especially in SP.
It is imposible to win after SP but it is possible to lose after sp and she will always face danger of losing competition after SP as long as she keeps trying 3F/3L.
3F/3T may have less base value but she isn't likely to pop 2nd jump unlike 3F/3L.
Mao reminds me of Phil Mickelson because his penchant fot additional length often led him to deep trouble. Mickelson has been criticized for his lack of course management and Mao should leran lesson from Mickelson. His fans revere him because he always go for heroic shot when he should play safe. That style earned him a lot of fans but bottom line is people who think he is idiot outnumber his fans.
