I see practice reports and videos are beginning to appear in different threads now so it's time we have a place to put them all.

I think it's R/T, not I/K.

I am gonna copy and post here from the other thread I posted earlier.
Japanese newspapers also reported on Japanese skaters:
-Mao looking great. She landed a couple of 3A with UR, but she says she feels good on her axels for her first trial in Nice.
-Dai's quads are not stable yet at his first apprearance during practice session.
-Takahiko has a small trouble with his skating boots; recently he broke into a new pair of boots, but did not fit him, so had to go back to the old one. Now he feels much better with no pain.
Just got through watching Artur Gachinski & Brian Joubert's SP practices, as promised I would later on tonight.
And my thoughts are thus:
Artur Gachinski - FAB! He looks like he's ready to rock! Seriously, came out and did that quad like it was nothing, then tacked on the 3T, thereafter moved onto the spread eagle into 3A like it was a piece of cake, skated about a bit, then BAM his footwork was totally tada! So quick, fast, like lightning out there, especially when he does those fabulous twizzles with his head back like he's doing a succession of headless spins, lol. (:^D Pure sex. *blush* But seriously he is. Anyhow, he sure reminded me of a young Evgeni Plushenko; wish Zhenya would skate to this gorgeous piece of music, as well as do the same choreography, moves, program, et al. Can only imagine what it would be like to have the real thing out there. (8^O
Brian Joubert - nice quad and lovely 3L, but where's the 3A? Also, I don't like this music nor program/choreography. Ah, Brian, why didn't you bring back "Once Upon A Time in Mexico"... Nevertheless, I will be rooting for you and hope all goes well.

I could watch him & Artur skate all day long, my type of men. And that moustache & beard just adds to that. (;^)
When he finally finishes skating I honestly think he should pursue a career in the movies, he looks like a movie star, reminds me of that one guy I always see acting in foreign language films, he was even in Joy Luck Club (will have to look him up later on & post, oops, just found him!: http://images.search.yahoo.com/image...mb=nABppYwu10I ).
One final comment, if you've never seen Daisuke Takahashi skate in person, I say do it now or never because nobody, and I do mean NOBODY comes close to him, he's like a rock star on ice (aka Elvis Presley on skates), never seen anything like that when it comes to ice skating (he's even better looking in person if that's possible; women young & old going wild over him, la verdad).
