I love watching her skate so freely!
I see they changed the blink of an eye spiral with a blink of an eye ina bauer lol but I wish she kept the spread eagle standing as is, it's like most SLB choreo now has a sitting spread eagle. imo that move should only be reserved to Wakaba.
Marin can earn high program component scores with that. I think she raised the level of her jumps just too high in the previous two seasons to compete with big jumpers like Mai Mihara and Kaori Sakamoto. Nailing all jumps should be a priority in the short program.
Hmm, Professor Google needs to study harder. It's very strange though, since 真凜's second kanji is 'rin' and no reading for 'go', it's not like Shoma's Masama, which is unfortunately understandable why that reading happens.
It may have something to do with Shingo Nishiyama (真瑚:shin/ma + go/ko) getting known for Ice Dance.
There are some songs that I listen to and immediately think: Marin is the one skater who definitely can pull that off Albatroz wasn’t on that list, but there she is, truly putting a party on! Amazing, isn’t she?
I love her landings still (when she lands things), her and Alyona have those beautiful arms when they land, always looking extra elegant.
With Mai's withdrawal ( ) from Skate Canada, I think Marin has a shot at getting the spot! She's the next highest eligible skater on the SB list. She might get passed for someone else, but hopefully she gets it - and hopefully getting the spot would motivate her even more to skate strong.
