    This is amazing! Shows that she CAN compete with Yu-Na Kim! Olympics will be different now!
    I don't think there was ever any doubt that Asada can compete. It will be interesting if this is the layout she sticks with..

    Here's a n interesting thought - has Mao ever done 3A-3T in practice?

    If she could work on that combo for next season that would potentially give her the highest scoring SP of all the ladies.

    If she nails Ave Maria to the wall, and one of the ladies in front of her falter just a bit, she might possibly mule-kick her way into 3rd.

    Judges!! Where is your eyes? Where is another 2 points?
    I would also be intrigued if the same judges were used in both the Ladies SP and the Mens SP.

    I, for one, and I think I am the only one, who does not believe that all judges are created equal. Can't help but think one Panel is not the same as another Panel.

    True, but shouldn't there be some objectivity especially in tes?

    According to Tatiana Tarasova Mao was able to do a LP runthrough with 3A-3T in the off-season (and 3(f)Lz + 3F-3L or 3F-3T in the second half). It seems like changing the training regime + getting 3S/fixing 3Lz messed up her timing on some jumps (especially 3-3s and 3Lz). I hope she'll get those more consistent next season.

    Having said that, I'm overjoyed that Mao did so well today! I watched her performance with audio getting ahead of video, so it was hilarious to hear the crowd going bonkers before Mao actually did something.

    Miki and Nobu were so adorable in the K&C when Mao's score went up! I thoght Nobu will poke Morozov's eyes out with the flag by accident.

    Great job from Miki, too... Such a shame that her 3-3 was downgraded, it looked sooo gorgeous in practices. It looks like 3L combos are just not a safe bet nowadays... If Miki did 3Lz-2L she would have been in 2nd. Perhaps it's time to work on 3Lz-3T - her 2A-3T looked amazing at Worlds, and her 3Lzs have great landings, so perhaps getting 3Lz-3T wouldn't be impossible.

    Holy score This new layout is so much better for her.

    I wonder how Joannie did. Her pcs seems pretty low.

    No kidding! Now I'm left wondering why she didn't use this layout before.

    She or Tat might not have been confident enough to put it in the short. I wonder if moa wish she had did it at worlds.

    Thanks for that.

    I still think it's not a great SP, she did the best she could with it today though.

    It was a good performance, great jumps, beautiful movements - but is it just me or did Asada look very subdued and sad at the end? Even when that huge score came up she barely acknowledged it, the crowd around her in awe, her teammates cheering and totally happy, but she looked completely down. And before the performance she looked scared, ready to break into tears.

    I hope it's just me.
