The JSF is planning pair (and dance) tryout sessions in June. Since Takahashi/Tran can't participate the Olympics, they are urged to create a national pair team for the team event.

Is Allison Reed going there?

I noticed how thin Mao looked at Worlds, too, and wondered if it was due to the stress of living and training in Japan after the earthquake. Does anyone have any links to interviews or information about Mao's training leading up to Worlds? Sorry if it's already been posted and I just missed it. . .

I haven't a link but I remember her saying that she couldn't eat after the earthquake. :( poor kid.

It is not directly about skate, but Akiko's blogging about the party and you can see the faces of Alissa and Adam there.

Three Japanese ice dancers are recent additions to icepartnersearch.com -- Taiyo Mizutani, age 22, his former partner at the Senior level Emi Hirai, 24 (who lists Muriel Zazoui as her coach in her icepartnersearch bio), and Misato Komatsubara, 18, who competed at 2011 Junior Worlds with her former partner, Kokoro Mizutani (he's now 21 and aged out of juniors). Mizutani is the only one not currently listed on icepartnersearch.

I wonder if either of the guys would be suitable for Allison Reed?

According to the official web site of Mai & Mao Asada, Mao Asada seems to be staying in Moscow now.
In Moscow, she may possibly be making with Tatiana Tarsova the new program for new season now, mayn’t she?


The message and the photo of Mao Asada in her official web site.

At Moscow
June 5th, 2011

I went to an Uzbekistan restaurant in Moscow!
I am looking forward to it because it is the first time for me (to eat the Uzbekistan cooking)!!

Akiko is in Detroit working with Yuka and Jason and will be skating in a fundraiser for Japan on Thursday. I saw her on the practice ice on Friday and she looks really good. She was only doing doubles. She looks really happy. I'll report back late Thursday night or Friday morning about the show.

This article says Daisuke Takahashi is considering using classical music next season.
It has been 4 years since he used classical music.
Of course, it is not the final decision yet,
but it sounds interesting nonetheless.
He has not decided the chorographer.
