Mao Shimada shines in Calgary


Record Breaker
Jun 21, 2003

Shimada, who was named after three-time World Champion Mao Asada, said she would be attempting a quad toe and triple Axel in her free skate.

"It seems to be that there is no limit if you work at it, which is why I like jumps," she said, when asked of her strengths. "I miss the jumps sometimes, but as far as the spins are concerned, I very rarely make mistakes and the speed of my rotations is one of my strengths."
There were lots of good skates in this event!

What are your thoughts? Who do you look forward to watching develop over the next few years?
