    Yay! Been waiting for this. I think she also attempted one back in 4CC this last season, right?

    I have mixed feelings. She obviously needs to increase her TES but if she's having problems rotating her easier triples I don't see how she'll pull this off.

    It's been a LONG time since she's had a 3A ratified. She gets lots of < as it is. I don't think she should rely on a jump she hasn't been successful with in several years.

    I think her last good one was 4CC 2011. I am more interested if she can rotate a flip.

    The title of this thread is a bit misleading. In the article, Mao's agent said the jump isn't left off permanently, but neither did she say she will definitely use it later in the season. The media always asks Mao about this jump, but from most recent interviews, it does appear it has become a much less of a focus in her training.

    Yes, a clean 7-triples FS without UR jumps would be a lot better than a mistakes-full program even with a good 3A...
