Pic: Ando, Fumie, and Shiz, Mikitan translate
I'm not Miki-tan, but the relevant part follows:
Japanese women jump contest--official figure skating practice day 2
Moscow...[snip most of paragraph 1]...At the practice rink a magnificent jump content unfolded.
When February's Four Continents' champion Fumie Suguri completed on a series of 3-2 jumps; Shizuka Arakawa, aiming at 2 consecutive championships, exceeded this, landing a/some 3-3 (unclear since Japanese does not indicate plurals). The quad challenged Miki Ando at the practice's conclusion.She tried it 5 times without success but remains positive.
[snip paragraph 3]
