    Mao looks so much better-she looks healthy! She looks strong! She looks happy to be skating! And that was a beautiful program!
    As far as the triple axel, perhaps the judges might overlook just a wee bit considering it is a woman who is putting a triple axel in a short program. Women have not kept pace with men where jumping in concerned. I would have thought by now plenty of women would have landed triple axels in competition....
    Also, can someone post Gold's program? I have to avoid that HaHa site, it infects my computer... and thank you to those who posted Mao and Akiko-they are both so wonderful.

    Miss Gold is represented by EMI which has removed the program. All I can say is....how obnoxious is that. But I have really enjoyed the rest of the programs, so THANK YOU! I hope Mao is back to her old form, but the long program will tell alot about her energy level.

    As far as why "UR's" are not called: Judging starts during the practice sessions. If a skater has a pattern of UR (Caroline, Mirai) they are not usually given the benefit of the doubt in the actual competition. From the practice video posted on here, Mao has had terrific practices with fully rotated jumps.

    I just got onto this thread. Mao! How perfectly stupendous! I am so excited I could almost do an axel myself. (Well, a 1/2 axel.) This is why I never give up on her: she never gives up on herself. What a bold lady she is.

    Also thrilling to hear that Suzuki and Gao have done so well.

    I am so happy for Christina!! And proud of her. She went out there and gave it everything, despite the disappointment at Nationals. Good for her!

    I think this confirms what I said after Nationals: Christina's skating is better appreciated internationally than nationally. Whereas with Agnes, it's the opposite. I cannot explain why this is so, but it clearly is the case. If you look at the PCS from the SP, Christina scored about a half point higher than Agnes in every category except SS. So clearly, the judges appreciate the artistry and quality of her program and skating, in a way the U.S. judges at Nationals did not.

    Hopefully Christina will take heart from this result, put out a good LP, and go into the Olympic season with momentum!!

    So happy for Mao too. She has had such a tough road the last few years. So glad to see her have some success!

    I haven't actually seen any videos yet, but Mao's SP sounds really impressive. If she can do something similar in the FS, then she might just be back in the hunt for Worlds.

    (The caveat and million dollar question, though: is this a sign of future jump consistency, or a successful roll of the dice? If the former, then Mao is a legitimate contender for Sochi gold. If the latter, then it becomes a tease in the quest for performance-reliable jumps, eg even a broken clock is right twice a day).

    It was a definite UR. Seriously? I loved Mao's program, she skated with so much joy. But her 3a was UR'd and did not deserve +GOE.

    This is your opinion. The technical specialist and all of the judges who saw it live thought it was very well executed since they have her such good GOE.

    Just watched the rerun on Eurosport 2. After nearly crying about the mess that was the Mens Competition this was a true joy to watch. The top three ladies made me so happy I'll just enjoy that and forget Men's even happened. Kanako was great, a beautiful program and so much expression! Akiko, wow, so good! Her programs are my favourites from the ladies this season, and I hope she has gained any confidence she might have lost in the last two months. I can hardly wait to see her O tomorrow. And finally Mao. What a performance. Honestly, even without that triple axel, tonight it felt like such a joy. When you watch her it just seems like she is not competing, but just having fun out there on the ice. She deserves everything she got tonight, imho. There is no discussion. I think she will slowly, but steadily will fight her way back to the top and to that Olympic Gold in Sochi.
