    Haruka had a great short program at 2014 4CC:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvlJqEGJ3q8

    Wishing her luck for the free skate!

    She skated really well at nationals, too:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THJP42JyEH4

    Was Haruka always this good at using her arms? Actually, she might be moving them a little too much in her nationals free skate, but it's not too distracting

    I think she was always a graceful and elegant skater.

    I'd kind of assumed she had reached her limits some time ago... but this year, she has dramatically improved her skating skills, speed, jumps... and she has more confidence. I don't know what happened, but it's great to see!

    Haruka is keeping her Malaguena SP for next season and bringing back her Piano Concerto FS from 2013-2014.
    http://news.walkerplus.com/article/59227/

    The article also says she will start performing a 3F-3T in the SP and add two 3F and a 3Lz in the FS. She has already tried these layouts at a local Niigata competition (did a 3F-2T in the SP, 3F-2T-2Lo, 3F and 3Lz in the FS) but as the protocols show (lots of < and -GOEs) she's still working on mastering these jumps.
    http://www.jsfresults.com/local/2014...7/03/index.htm

    Thought this was good enough reason to bring this thread back and also hoping for the best for her.

    Wow!
    Now I find Haruka is going to Autumn Classic Canada. This is the first competition for her this season?
    Anyway, it seems good for her. This competition has Yuzu, Nam etc., so a lot of audience will be there. Further, we have live streaming!
    Go! Haruka!

    Good luck Haruka!

    matmuh, I was just admiring the chart you made for the OP. I may have to steal it for Shoma's. But then, maybe not (too lazy )
