"She'll be taking on all those Russians in Stockholm" with her leg slice move? Because that sounds like a Mission Impossible movie, Simon.
That's fascinating! I was just thinking wow the Japanese ladies are really upping the three-jump combo game with everyone doing the 3T-2T instead of the 2T-2Lo most other ladies do.I actually asked a few Japanese coaches about this a few weeks ago. They don’t do Eulers because they don’t find them graceful.
I like both of their skating, but it also comes down to GOEs which Kaori does have on Wakaba for most jumps. Wakaba should be overall closer than 30 points for sure, though.153 for Kaori...
Now where are those who didn't believe that Kaori is such a fed fave and that Wakaba had a chance to beat her with a clean program that has 3A?
Add the points she lost for the pops + 3 points on pcs and she doesn't even come close to 150.
