It seems that Kanako plans to continue, as she has already mentioned how much she enjoyed competing in Sochi and how she would like to make it to Pyeongchang. However, Kanako got wrecked by the tech panel at 2014 Worlds with 6 underrotation calls in her LP. While some of those calls were very harsh, her unorthodox technique on several jumps probably doesn't do her any favors in the panel's eyes. Is this a sign that she should attempt to rework her technique (fix her flutz, get rid of her hammer toe on Lutz and flip, possibly change her weird squatting entry to the loop)? Could the Japanese ladies afford this kind of short term sacrifice from one of their top skaters?
