    Extremely impressed by Kanako Murakami in practice at #4CC #4CC2012 as well today! Her 3T+3T is so fast and covers so much ice!

    Awwww

    Andrew Dodds' follow-up on Mao:

    @ichigo_84 yes! She was so good! I am hoping she nails them in her program for worlds and 4cc

    @ohh_n Yes, I didn't expect her to be so fast and jump so high in person! I am just disappointed my favorite skater Akiko Suzuki isn't here!

    Any reports on Wagner, Zawadski, Phaneuf, Najarro, Kexin Zhang for the ladies. Evora/Ladwig, Takahashi/Tran and Sui/Han for pairs?

    So glad to hear that about Mao... she is a real little fighter and not someone to play it save - one of the many reasons I love her so much!
    Keeping my fingers crossed for her for two clean programms

    Really happy to hear about Murakami too - hope she can skate both her programms like she did her SP at nationals, their so beautiful... I'm still impressed how much she's grown since last season

    Thanks SkateFiguring for all the updates!

    EDIT:
    If someones interested in a short training video of Mao...

    No direct practice report but Phaneuf was happy with her first practice, and J10

    Just bumped into @AshWagner2010 & had a gr8 mini catch-up. Her happy mood & smile is infectious. #4CC

    Just caught Caroline Zhang's run-thru of free -- missed just one jump. Big double Axel at end. Looks very solid. #4CCh

    Sitting up close, incredible how huge AZawadzki's jumps are. I think she completes her rotation a foot off the ground. #4CC

    I love Haruka too! Japanese ladies continue to shine!

    Also great to hear Lynn Rutherford's closeup of Agnes's jumps. I would love, love, love for Agnes to medal here.

    Regarding resurfacing: It's standard and customary for resurfacing to be every 10-12 skaters (depending on if warm up groups are 5 or 6 skaters long)
