    That bouquet on her chest looks like exploded roast beef. It puts to mind gunshot victims in the morgue.

    Probaly this obsession comes because she wants to be the first female to land a 3A in the short and 2 3A in the long at the olympics(Midori almost did so...)
    Yes, that is part of It, but more than that she wants to win the olympics and feels that the triple axels are the only way she can do so. It is the only thing she has over the Yu-na. If mao does a 3flip/3loop, even clean, it will get fewer points than Yu-na's 3 lutz/ 3 toe.

    Which will more likely than not get a DG. That, and the fact that she changed her flip technique makes the 3-3 even more of an unrealistic option than her 3A. Team Mao feels the 3A is their strongest option when it comes to earning the big points, and I fully support them.

    Anyways, good job Kanako!

    So why is Kanako 9 points behind Mao and only one ahead of Fumie? A 3/3? She is the only one who landed one so far. I did not the rest of her skating but it seems like she should be closer to Mao.

    well yeah, its her weapon to beat yuna, but even so 69 its just something that Joannie also can beat with a clean program
    I admire mao for being such a fierce lady, but in the olympic season you cant just play like that, i still believing that a 3f/2l would be better for her, but there is nothign we cant do

    I am just happy to see her skating again, i missed her

    I believe Mao should've changed her entire toe jump technique( not just flip) after she won 08 worlds. The hesistence has dinged both her 3Lz and 3-3.

    Probably her 3t/3t was downgraded.

    Sat-chan isn't on today. she's had a good season so far, winning on a couple of National B comps.

    I wonder if there is a very strict technical caller at this event. All these downgrades. Not very leniant.
