    That's a pretty good score for not the hardest jump content. I've never heard of this girl before, she must have skated very well. I hope they will show her during the broadcast, I'm curious.

    This is a big score for Kanako, and I was so sure this is between Akiko and Mao. Now it's more exciting with the old Kanako back!

    I remember watching her some time ago. Her jumps weren't very solid, but she had quite interesting choreography and very good expression for a skater of her level.

    You have a point. Funny thing is, from what I've noticed a lot of the skaters with wonky tilt-to-the-inside technique were/are known as genius jumpers and "mastered" their jumps while there were still very young (with incorrect technique, but it wasn't punished or even mentioned back then). OTOH many skaters who have more correct technique now often mention in the interviews that they were very poor jumpers at first (Nobunari, Satoko) and/or started to skate rather late (Miki). Similarly, Yamada's wunderkids (Kanako, Shouma, and Kanako's ex-rival Sayaka Matsubara) were noticed by the media very early on, but all have that tilt + high kick technique on the take-off (which makes achieving the outside edge on the Lutz nigh impossible), but Miu, about whom I haven't heard until recently, has more correct technique. I wonder if she simply hadn't struggled with her jumps so much that they sought a technique that could work with her body type and/or had a different jump coach assist her.
