She is a great skater. Let's see if she makes it to the GPF.

She seemed to hesitate on the podium about how high she should hold her medal:laugh:

Thank you puremagic! Mako certainly deserves her own thread. Do you happen to know what her other JGP event is? I'm assuming she would definitely have a second one.

Gongrats to Mako for her bronze medal! I was at the arena and got so excited for her. She did really well and held it together, skating after Sasha. I'm not so sure what exactly happened for her to end up in the picture of Team Tutberidze, but they all skated to the exit of the rink and the coaches came to take the picture. She was there with them and she seemed a bit lost, not knowing exactly what to do and Sergei told her something and invited her to take a picture with them. I thought that it was really nice.

^I am hoping it is not because of injury too. The statement was vague of why she withdrew.

I meant to put the link to the statement but forgot and then couldn't remember where I'd read it. I loved her program, but I thought she seemed super nervous while performing. I figured it was just ice skating show nerves, but maybe she was uneasy due to injury.

ETA -- There was no explanation about why she cancelled. Found the announcement on THE ICE official web site.
