    I think Mao should try 3Lo+3Lo in the SP. As long as she fully rotated the 3A and 3F, there is no point disavantage for her and she can still run away with over 8 points, even if the second loop got <.

    Oda has had better quads than Dai but also somewhat hit or miss. Taka's quad is not that reliable either but he doesn't fall often. Both Nobu and Taka have better chances of hitting their quads beautifully at Worlds than Daisuke, IMO.

    Neither Takahashi nor Oda has had a clean competition this season.
    I just hope Dai doesn't go over board with attempting the quad and injuring him self. And see how Chan did in SP. Technically he doesn't need the quad and can still crack with 170 mark if he goes clean with all of his jumps due to his strong PCS.

    Yeah, me too. I have a feeling that it will either be epic or just fall flat with the audience.

    it's growing on me.
    To be honest, choreographically nothing special. But she skated well.

    I just read through the last 4 pages and 90% is about YuNa - Mao.

    Will there be more reports on other skaters' practices?

    She really needs to point her feet, it really bothers me that she doesn't even try. But otherwise I love the program.

    And to think Mao didn't even had her first official practice yet, as she just recently arrived in Moscow...
    To answer your question, aussieSKATES tweeted that Tatiana Voloshozhar and Maxim Trankov are looking strong in practice

    LOL at the fan's camera following Joubert's loitering while the reigning world champion is doing his run through!

    Why didn't this fan get Joubert's run through?

    LOL that while everyone runs through the whole program with only mental jumps, Joubert does his with just jumps, plus the ending footwork, with zero transition and spin.

    That is quite interesting, actually. Says a lot about Brian's approach to his program.
