    In the practice this morning, the skater whose name one dares not post in a GS thread hit her triple Lutz, triple toe; triple flip; a double Axel double toe double loop; and every other jump she tried.

    Mao could not land a triple Axel, although she tried both in the program and many outside the program. Either a pop or a two foot.

    Nakano has changed the open of her program to double Axel, double Axel. Extremely vibrant onesie.

    Appeared Alexe was having a bit of trouble with Lutz. Zhang mule kick intact.

    Do you know if the skater-whose-name-one-dares-not-post-in-a-GS-thread also hit her nemesis triple loop during her morning practice?

    I did not see her land a triple loop. May have missed it. And it's not such a nemesis she can't amass 200+ points.

    I got some dress rehearsal photos!

    You can find these photos so easily in Korean or Japanese sites
    Mao has changed her dress again...? I thought the blue
    dress she wore at the Japan open was for this season, so
    I don't know why she would change it already. Yuna, as we all heard,
    is wearing a blue dress.

    My gosh I am so excited!

    Hmm, Mao's outfit has a v. similar cut to her SP outfit. I kind of preferred the Japan Open one though.

    according to the documentary aired Korea just before TEB she said she always puts in the loop at the beginning of the season and then if she has trouble with it she changes the program accordingly - but she may have taken it out even before the season this time, it's hard to tell, especially if it wasn't seen in warm-ups.

    I think she should go for it here since she has practically bagged this one already and it's early in the season. By keep avoiding the jump, she might be remembered as the greatest figure skater ever who couldn't do a triple loop.

    I have to say Kiira's spins have improved. Too bad for the jumps though!!

    Both of Nakano's costumes scream "trying too hard."

    Yuna's dress is so simple and beautiful.. Mao's.. hideous.

    Apart from mistakes on jumps, I find Caro's program a bit monotonous. To me, artistically she still misses something.
    On the shallow note - I wonder why cannot she get a simple, straight-cut skirt (like in most of Kiira's dresses, for example). Her skirts are always too rich and do not make her justice.
