    Any hints of Mao competing before the Grand Prix season other than Japan Open?

    I don't think she will attend anything else, she usually never does. She even opted out attending a number of shows in this offseason. Japan Open will most likely be the first competition she will be attending.

    Simply sublime. So airy and yet so emotionally full.

    Smart of her to be training in proximity to the event for Skate America. Her coach (Mr Sato) must had help getting ice time from Ms. Yuka Sato

    Add me to the Mao Asada Bandwagon. She has grown on me over the years. She is also, imo, the frontrunner with regards to the big Olympics.

    I love Mao Asada's short AND long programs this year. I do believe that she has grown as a skater in her footwork, artistry, and spins... which I believe is very hard to do. I really don't like the fact that Yuna Kim gets higher PCS than Asada, because I don't think that Kim has that much better artistry than Asada and that she really hasn't done anything to "reinvent" herself in the past 4 years. What Kim DOES have that Asada doesn't is speed across the ice, but I think that she has the more speed because she doesn't have as much footwork or as many "in-betweens" as Asada does.

    Also the fact that Kim gets high GOE on her jumps is ridiculous, because her free foot isn't that stretched out on the landing and she doesn't have that much speed going out of it. So Asada and Kim's GOE should really be that different in numbers. Just look at 2010 Vancouver, even though Kim landed more triples than Asada, Kim's GOE was way too high and she was like 20 points (?) above Asada, which I think is very unfair. Asada even landed 3 triple axels combined and she wouldn't have even been close to matching Kim's scores even if they had the same number of triples.

    I really want Asada to win Olympic Gold because she has improved so much, however, her triples do seem to be a bit underrotated and unfortunately they don't seem to be that reliable as Kim's triples. I'm sort of thinking that even if they both skate cleanly that Kim will win because of her unfairly high PCS and GOE. Asada would probably have to have 3-4 more triples than Kim to probably just barely beat her. Asada's PCS's this year should be closer to 75-78, rather than just 70 in my opinion.
