2010/11 was a season of experimentation for Mao in which she set about changing aspects of her jumping technique and other areas, etc. She did this knowing full well that her results in competitions may suffer during the 2010/11 season, but it was done with an eye on the 2014 Olympics. However, will this ultimately pay off and will her results improve for the 2011/12 season?

Seriously hoping it is. Haters remain pressed. ;)

I think it'll probably be better than last season (that was pretty bad, for her), but maybe still not her best.. I'm hoping I'm wrong about the second part though

I hope her season is better than last. I'm still not sure she'll be exactly where she wants to be but I hope there is some improvement.

Mao will continue to struggle as long as she focuses on 3axels that she is unable to cleanly land. She will have some good skates and win but I think it will all come down to luck on whether or not those good skates happen at the big events.

If Mao is serious about improving her jump technique, then I certainly hope so. It'll be a great example for others if an established skater decides to work on having more correct technique and actually succeeds in doing so.

My answer is NO, because I don't want to jinx her ;)

I am sure that it will be a better season then last, since she last year simply had too many changes at the same time. not to mention that she begun those changes very late in the season and her weight loss at worlds definitely effected her too. since she clearly improved from every competition as the season went by and as her new technique has become much more familiar to her.
but how well it will go this season will be interesting to see, i really hope that she has regained her good condition so that we will see her in top form again from the beginning off the season...

I hope it is, because she has beautiful skating. I hope she can work on her Flip and Lutz because incorrect edges are my pet peeve. I also hope she brings her old spiral back even though it won't get her more points because I thought that it was the best spiral sequence post Sasha.

asada doesn't have an incorrect edge on the flip only on the lutz and she is already working on correcting that one

Well, her triple lutz wasn't really any better in 2011. But her triple flip is nice. I thought she lipped it from the camera angle.
I hope she can rotate all her jumps as well.

She doesn't lip. lol. In fact, her edge on the flip is quite deep.

Yeah, but the angle that I saw her flip from made it look like it was a bad edge.
