    All I'm hoping is that they learned from their "selection error" for 2009 Junior Worlds last year.

    There is a deadline for the entry of each event.
    It would be too late if they wait and see the results of all four events.

    So, it is quite normal for JSU to keep the entry to anyone(usually the one assigned the first event), while at the same time, register all other players as substitutes.
    They can replace the entry considering the results of all players.

    The name "Kondo" is a kind of "dummy". It's not decided yet who will get the second assignment.

    Wow! Thank you soooo much!

    Just watched Kanako's SP. I like this program, especially the step part.

    Kanako is a very lovely skater, but her jumping technique is very reminiscent of Zhang's. Let's hope that changes as she matures.

    It is not.... Her jumps are tight and have some actual spring and height. And she doesn't flutz. And her 2axel is about twice as good as Zhang's.

    I meant her toe jumps (especially her lutz and flip). She vaults her free leg up into the air just as Zhang does.

    actually she does flutz pretty bad.

    Kanako definitely flutzes, but I'll forgive her since so many junior ladies have edge errors of some kind anyway. She actually worked on her jump technique and the axel/salchow looks a lot better compared to last season too - one step at a time, folks.

    For those who are interested, the same user on DM (shah85) have uploaded the LP of Takahashi/Tran, Yuzuru, and the FD of Ilinykh/Katsalapov.

    she does flutz, from the date I knew she used to have the same coach as Mao

    I just wonder if all the skaters under that coach would have the similar defects or not

    I'm a little surprised at the lack of comment about Ilinyk/Katsalpov. They skated to music from Schindler's List, in Poland, and she's wearing concentration camp garb (oh, and the music sounded like it ended with a gunshot). Am I being overly sensitive or is that extremely tasteless?

    Just so you know, Mao's first coach wasn't Machiko Yamada. Mao's jumping technique was probably taught by Monna, Mao's first coach, who coaches Miki Ando on and off when she is in Japan.
