Love the music and LOVE the video. Her double axel looks waaaay better than in 2009 or whenever she did those PIW shows. I was a bit worried at first because the waltz jumps weren't so great and her knees looked stiff but obviously at 41 it takes time to warm up!! I really hope she enjoys her time in Oberstdorf, skates her best and puts adult skating on the map. Hopefully the Japanese TV will be there to record it.

And I hope perhaps she will have happy memories of the last time she competed in Oberstdorf where as a child skating genius of 12, she unleashed this on the world. ;)

I am looking forward to seeing her skating!:) Any streaming??
And I found her new video.

That was one of the weirder videos I have ever watched. The double axel looks really good. Loved the fall on the scratch spin, you don't see that much, but occasionally a kid will go down on a blur spin at our rink...

Oh, it's just Japanese tv. That's how it is.

Well, that's because it's like a quiz show. The guests on the show were supposed to guess how many revolutions she could still do on a jump (the answer was 2-1/2) and in a spin (26).

Ah! That makes sense. Thanks.

The 41-year-old Japanese said at a news conference Thursday that "figure skating isn't just a sport for young people."

"People of all ages should try, and in that spirit I decided to compete in this tournament," the 1992 Olympic silver medalist said.

Major :cheer2: to Midori for being so eloquently supportive of adult skating.

Nice 2A. It looked easy.

She's one of those skaters that is really loved by pretty much everyone. I haven't heard a bad comment from anyone about her, even on FSU. She is so humble it's just endearing. Can't wait for the competition. The double axel is just incredible. The height and landing flow is amazing, add to that her age. She totally deserves the respect she gets.

WOW, beautiful music and fitting Midori very well!!! I could also imagine some eligible skaters skating to it, maybe Mirai Nagasu?

Are there any internet streaming where can we see the competition?
I'll die to watch Midori's skating.
