    That's four combinations you've got there. In any case, Mao's potential base point would be insane.

    When I first saw it in a photo, I thought it was too feathery and glittery, but on the big screen, it's a dream.
    Tat has really outdone herself this time.
    Why not be a fangirl? With Mao there is a lot to cheer for.

    The potential base points would be insane but I don't think it's ultimately wise for her to pull out all the tricks, unless a perfect Yu-Na or Carolina has gone before her. I feel like there's just too much risk attached to doing 2 triple axels with a 3-3.

    My dream Mao layout would be:
    3A
    3F-3Lo
    2A-3T
    3Lo-2lo-2lo
    3F
    3S
    3Lz
    That's if Mao is feeling well and feeling her jumps. In all honesty though it might be a better idea to repeat the 2A instead of the 3Lz. She'll always have edge issues with the jump and with her +GOE and 10% bonus a 2A to round off her program wouldn't be a bad thing. Mao is getting 120+ scores for FS that haven't been entirely clean, so if she hits a 7 triple program with decent GOE can you imagine her score? It would be very hard to beat regardless, and it could come without having a second, very risky 3A.

    That is because Eurosport hasn't payed enough attention to Euros this year. I have seen the entire competittion an it was the best I've seen in years in all 4 competitions. 4cc was really boring compared to euros. Especially the european girls were really good, not only the top 3 and there was no clear winner like here. Caro was the favourite but any of the 2 russian girls could have won. Liza received more than Mao in LP. And comparing what I have seen until now from mao and caro, I see Caro beating Mao at Worlds and Yuna winning.

    For those of you old enough....Does Gold remind you of Nicole Bobek? (And Bobek could be really fantastic, or a train wreck...just depending upon the competition)
    Agnes has a great deal of natural ability, but she has to work on her conditioning and stamina-it has been her downfall for years. I wouldn't worry about Gold on the World team, even when she skates poorly, they seem to be propping her up somewhat. One thing I will say about Gold, she has terrific speed and stamina throughout the program. She is a well conditioned athlete.

    I am wondering whether mao would try 3t3l, in which she could have more momentum to pull out a fully rotated 3l. And she can do 3f2l2l and 3l to get rid of 3s which she always doubled.

    My two cents:

    Mao delivered a strong comeback message. But her potential monstrous jump layout remains... just a potential, as we saw in the FS. My bet is bronze for Mao at the Worlds.

    Osmond appears to be an upgraded version of Joannie Rochette, who remains as one of my favorite skaters. Very looking forward to Osmond's development in the next season and beyond.

    Thank you sooo much, Mao88.
    Isn't Zijun Li gorgeous? I can't stop watching her, great fluid jumps, flexibility, softness, and such a lyrical quality to her skating. Not to mention great arms and toes. I hope the judges will start to take notice.

    (On another note, it was 2-footed but Mao's 3a looked rotated- admittedly to my untrained eyes! She is such a beautiful, fluid skater! SO EXCITED FOR WORLDS.)
    I'm just working my way through the thread and had to stop to squeeee about both Mao and Christina. Oh, Mao! I'm in tears. This lady has a heart of fire. I'm so proud to be her fan.


    More thoughts: So glad to hear that Akiko did well. Congrats to the ladies of Japan! And Gao in fourth? Tremendous. But my first and most intense emotion is for Mao. How delightful to see her doing so well again.

    A Japanese sweep of the podium for the ladies! Congrats to Mao, Akiko and Kanako!.
    I am thrilled for Akiko for a strong comeback after her previous difficulties
    this should give her confidence going into Worlds.

    Also very happy for Christina, well done!

    I have not had a chance to watch the videos yet. Mao88 thank you for for posting the videos,
    as always you are the best!

    Many congrats to medalists! to Mao Akiko & Kanako.
    Without any of your performances, I could have never overcome my rather miserable Sunday...Thank you so much, girls!

    But the one who stole my heart tonight was Zujin Li!

    Glad Gao has decided to stay on another year. She is only 18, so why the unwillingness of some here to give her the same benefit of a doubt given other teenagers here. Delighted Susuzki has bounced back, but I am concerned she will never be given her due by the judges. With regard to the two overhyped skaters, all that glitters is not gold lol.
