    If CBC hadn't re-shown all of those free skates from earlier in the week there would have been time for more people.

    Someone posted in another forum that Jeremy Abbott and Michal Brezina were competing for quad jumps at the Gala practice. They skated 4T, 4S, 4F, 4T-3T-3Loop ... Jeremy fell on a 4S at near the end of the practice and hurt himself. But he did many kinds of quads clean. They even clapped for each other for the successful quad jumps.

    So that was the reason that Jeremy said he's hurt his hip during the Gala practice. He said on his twitter to expect him having a first solo ice dance at the gala. But he's managed to jump 3 triples clean. Fell on the fourth triple jump. Not bad gala performance at all!

    very cute; instead of learning, PT tried to teach Dai and Mao spins and throw jumps.

    I think it's cute how Tong Jian (Pang/Tong) is teaching the pair how to do a throw jump.

    In the end, they do a sbs triple axel and a throw single(?) jump. Hahaha.

    Dai and Mao learn pairs from Pang/Tong.
    So adorable and peaceful. Love the comment section. Many ppl are thanking Pang/Tong in Chinese and Japanese for being really nice to Mao and Dai.

    Thanks so much for the link of Takahashi, Asada, and P/T skating together! It's lovely. And thanks, Seniorita, for another enjoyable report.

    It also inspired me to hunt on YouTube for other gala performances. Kim is splendid. Takahashi is to die for--that final spin with his hands clasped over his head: wow. Asada is like a butterfly, lighter than air. She commands that fan the way a rhythmic gymnast uses streamers. I agree with Viv and Prokofiev that skating with a prop, even a tiny one, adds tremendously to the difficulty of the routine. I should watch other people's galas, but I sense I'll be re-watching these three for awhile.
