    Sitting w/ @EvanLysacek & @MichelleWKwan watching Mao Asada free run thru. She opened with a gorgeous triple Axel. Evan: "Wow" #Sochi2014

    I saw Mao land two other strong triple Axels outside of the run-thru, plus every other jump she tried. Strong practice. #Sochi2014

    Gracie Gold is looking very strong on ladies training session. Perfect short program run. Mao landed at least 10 perfect triple axels #sochi

    Slow down, Mao!!

    If Mao looses with a clean performance that would be the most frustrating thing ever!

    Great 3 axel! I would be really happy for her if she landed it well in the competition.

    Wow, Mao looks like she's jumping pretty well. Hard to say based on a clip, though, since you don't know what percentage of attempts end up looking like that. But if she hits a couple like that, she's definitely got a better chance for gold than I thought.

    This one says she landed 3 times out of 3 attempts in Friday's practice.
    Rotation seems to be OK.

    Mao Most people are pegging Yuna as the favorite (even heavy favorite) but Mao is such a sentimental favorite for so many people. Perhaps it's better for her to be (somewhat) under the radar without so much pressure and attention on the rivalry. If she just concentrates on her own performance and skates for herself, I think the rest will fall into place.
