Zijun Li, I hope she podiums
I'm so happy that Hanyu and Dai brought up Kevin, that's the kind of respect overdue from Skate Canada.
I hope Kaetlyn and Zijun Li both deliver two flawless programs! and Gold and Mao.
And for all the teams/skaters, Go for a great competition!
Yes! Wonderfully classy of them. Of course, they can truly respect his pushing the technical envelope and having arguably the hardest jump layout of the men (other than maybe Javier).

I'm also hoping Mao can put together a clean skate. She's had a lot of trouble over the season and even though it's led to wins, I'm sure she'd like to win with a solid set of skates.
Morozov speaks Jananese?!

The technical specialist of ladies is the same person with Vancouver Olympics. Maybe this selection is influenced by the JSF. I predict her 3A would be ratified at least in the free if she landed in both programs "cleanly".
This one says that Asada is going for a 3-3. I guess it would be the 3F-3Lo in the FS. In today's practice session, she landed the 3-3 three times along with the 3A.
Jump layout on paper?
What about mao's SP? Will she try the 3-3 or the 3A?
In an interview by Fuji TV, Mao said she would try 3A in SP. 3A and 3-3 in FP.
Check out Mao's 3F-3L! I think that second loop is looking mighty good:
So it could be something like:
SP: 3A 3F-2L 3L
LP: 3L 3A 3F-3Lo 3Lz 3S 2A-3T 3F-2lo-2lo
K&C at least looks much better than at NHK with their a la either wedding bathtub or coffin version. This one is in classic traditional way. Kansai is such Kansai.
