    I didn't see any 3-3 combo videos from practice, only 3A and 3F-2L. Do you have any video?
    I think her 3A is borderline UR from the practice videos. It can go either way, depends on the technical specialist( If she lands one in the competition,of course)

    I'm so excited that Mao is trying everything. Does anyone know how the altitude is affecting her? Has she spent time training at a higher altitude?

    All the Japanese ladies said their jumps were easier here in altitude but it affected their stamina so it is likely that there will be some affect in the long program. Don't know if any of them had altitude training, seems unlikely from their comments.

    Kanako was treated for anemia and stomachache due to the low oxygen level. I hope she's OK and will compete.

    Jeremy Abbott & Alissa Czisny are both here today at the practice rink. Abbott said it's his first day back on the ice. Said his body just felt he needed the rest after Nationals and that 4 Continents was just too close after Nationals. Didn't get to speak to Alissa but since both Yuka and Jason are here, Jeremy and Alissa came as well. Jeremy said he'd never been to Nice, France before and was looking forward to it. Same for the Shibs and Davis & White. Both Meryl & Charlie speak French, but Meryl's accent is better, so Charlie defers to her.

    Actually, I'll bet a cookie they end up in Italy, Meryl's favorite place in the World. Charlie likes Japan, AFAIR, and one other country whose identify escapes me just now. They talked about it in on of the IN interview pieces.

    Nice is small and a bit boring. You can definitely check out the entire thing for a few hours.
    I suggest they make a trip to Marseille, which is only an hour train ride away. My favorite french food is from Marseille.

    No idea, but he was called sluggish and having trouble settled in. I guess general subpar skating as opposed to success or problems with the big jumps. With Patrick, his competition performance cannot be predicted from his practice. Never know what he would surprise you with.

    eta: This is what he said about how he felt yesterday:

    Chan, who trains in Colorado Springs, said the ice felt different than in recent practice sessions and that contributed to his hiccup.

    “They changed the ice, and the temperature was a little different. I could feel it,” said Chan, who won gold at the 2009 Four Continents Championships. “I was on it last Friday, a week ago, and it feels different than then. So, little things like that change things, and that’s why it makes it feel a little bit foreign.

    “It really makes me feel like I’m at an international competition and not at home.”

    Chan said he didn’t feel at ease during the warm-up session, either.

    “The six-minute warm-up was a little shaky,” he said. “I was having trouble finding my feet and staying grounded. I was getting high in the shoulders and tight in my upper body, so my jumps weren’t as poppy.”
