I have faith in the swan
Here's a video of Mao's practice report/news story about how she's been since the death of her mother. It's worth the watch. Also includes footage of Mao as a little girl and it's really cute. English translator over the Japanese.
Good luck to all the ladies! Special thoughts with Mao. I miss Fumie - but can't wait to read all about this comp and see videos.
leave no stone unturned
emma, is there the video you posted about Mao somewhere else? The link doesnt work :(
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oavCmJx4IWw - Mao's practice video.
She landed nicely a 3Lz at 1:58(the flutz is still there, but slightly) and a beautiful 2A-3T combo at 2:03. Her 3F looks solid as a rock but the 3A is very shaky.
My heart's in my mouth. Hold it together, Mao! We're all with you.
When are the ladies skating? The men already went so I thought the ladies would be over already.
Ladies start in a little over an hour: 2:10 pm Japanese time, 12:10 am Eastern time. Ladies short program is scheduled the day after the men short program.

Great, thanks guys, can't wait to see Mao, hope she does great.
If it the event starts at 2:10, it should be starting in 2 minutes!
It started. I am reading this link - http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/channe...how/winter/587 - for live updates through google translate. Often difficult to understand but somewhat entertaining
Ladies SP started. From the link babayaga has posted.
She skated with good speed. 54.14
