Also note that the coverage is to go on for hours, and I think that it'll have lots of fluff for Mao. (That's how they ended up turning GPF ladies short into a 2 hour madness -- 1 hour of Mao fluff & 40 mins of real comp, taped delayed by 1 hour so that they can force Mao fluff on the audience who thought they were going to watch GPF short live.)

I believe that Mao got a 67.95 at NHK without a 3/3 or a triple axel. That seems way too high to me--I don't think a skater should be able to get over 65 for a short without a 3/3, and definitely not without both a 3Lz and 3F-- but it's not like the judges at Japanese Nationals are giving scores that are way above the scores international judges sometimes give.

Wow Kanako Murakami just topped Akiko Suzuki! She's currently in first place, this is interesting :P
Update: And Mao Asada is the Japanese champion

Mao had problems with her 3F, the first one was two footed and she doubled the second one. She landed everything else, according to http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/channe...ow/winter/1462
She landed 3Loop, 3T, 3S , 3F and the 3Lz(probably with an edge) so this should put a stop to "mao asada 2 triples"

One does not simply skate into Sochi
Yes, Mao did it again. Sad for Akiko. Nice for Kanako.
AND WOW Miyahara Tomoko is now in third place! I don't think this is going to change, by congrats to her. I had a feeling she would sneak onto the podium 'cause she is super talented despite her 'small' jumps. Sadly, I didn't expect Akiko to be out of the podium, but there's a high chance she is going to Worlds given that Miyahara is probably going to Junior Worlds.
Miyahara is not eligible for worlds so unless the last two girls pull a Mura, Akiko is safe for worlds

Haha, yes I went to check Miyahara's age just now. Akiko is safe then She's currently in fourth place, and I highly doubt the last two skaters will beat her score.

Sad for Akiko! Hope she does really well with 4CC and Worlds
I thought she was going to win Nationals this year, oh well.
Me too!! I thought she was going to win too. Oh well, she'll kick butt at worlds and 4CC :P
