I think that mao jump problems could actually meen a good thing,that she is seriously reworking her technique, that is not something that can change so fast,so we shold just be patient and not panic.
Yes, Mao is out of the Final.
Right about this time, Bells of Moscow and Tarasova aren't looking so bad anymore....
I'm re-watching it on my feed. She popped her two axels and her lutz. She fell on her two flips. Her 3S probably < Her 3Lo was the only triple she managed to salvage . Her skating in general was slow and hesitant. No emotional connection because of her nerves. I'm really, really upset for her. I hope she can re-group in time for TEB. Even better, she should just skip and focus on Worlds.
I believe that trying to correct her edge for the lutz, affected her flip. She failed to land a single flip both at JO and here. I'm so sad for her right now. I wish the media won't be cruel to her and give her some credit for what she is trying
2nd group is on the ice.
Maybe they should have done a zamboni break or something.
Mao basically popped or fell on all her jumps except 3S which looked UR / double-footed to me, and 3Lo which looked okay.
It was soooo painful to watch.
And Sato didn't look all that supportive. Gave her the guards then turned away.
Please don't give up!
Caro K looking sharp in yet another lovely costume. Good taste. Doesn't a famous Italian designer make her costumes?
Caroline missed 2 jumps, but her flexibility looks better.
Not a good showing from Caro Z.
133.86, now second.
Yikes, not a great night.
