Mao always seems to have to work so hard for her PCS score, but she digs so deep beneath the sea of human emotion that every precious decimal point shines more brilliantly than a polished pearl; and her technical was so outstanding that she still got the world record SP anyway!!! She has brought me to tears again and again. She's off the charts in the Tear Jerker Component Score. Come on- just one more time. Relive the Sochi LP and you will be home free. Focus and unite exquisite artistry with technical mastery, as only you can, Mao-Chan!!
Beautiful SP! I'm so glad she finally got to perform a perfect Nocturne at Worlds.
I may plaster this forum with endless love for Yulia but don't think for a second I don't have enough love left over for Mao. She is one of the greatest ever and tonight's SP was simply one of those moments that just know you'll never forget! (Thank you YouTube |). I'm pulling for Mao to go out and win it all. Nothing but respect and best wishes.
Mao was utterly sublime today. That WR is well deserved. A lot of skaters get gifted in PCS while Mao has to work for it -- I agree with that. Tonight's performance deserved even more than what she got esp when you see it live.
Not many hours left, so I came to say good luck.
You are already a queen, Mao!
good luck to Mao
I think today she will finally lay on that two 3A LP
You can do it! Fighting!!
Congratulations, Mao, on your 3rd World Championship title! You now have the most WC titles of any skater since Michelle Kwan.
Congratulations,Mao for this great accomplishment And I am really sorry that you'll retire
And if someone found the video from her LP today,please share it here...
Here is a link for her Worlds LP. To be honest, it still brings me to tears. There is only the one step out to distract from perfection. The tech panel was just vicious today on all skaters but particularly Asian skaters, though I think the podium placements are correct. I might even have placed the Russian Anna at third. I really like her and Yulia too, but not nearly as much as monumental and majestic Mao.
Here is a quick link, though it is not in HD: http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...reeskate&sm=12
First lady to win 3 world titles under current rules! Well done Mao!
Not exactly the performance she was looking for, if this was indeed her last competition... 3 UR calls (surprised that 3A was called UR?!)... an edge violation... silly mistake on the 2A and missed combination... but still a beautiful, beautiful performance.
I'm so happy for her. omedetou!!!
Congrutations for Mao, she is an amazing skater!
