As much as I love her happy and joyful programs - I really want her to go for a tango again.

This was the very first program I saw of her and I really thought that other skater-tangos, especially from women, were really weak compared to this.

Totally happy of course that she wants to stay. :D


I remember watching that program for the first time and going :swoon: :swoon: :swoon:
Every other lady should be be banned from skating to tango.

I love her jumps overall. They are neat and pretty, nothing breathtakingly high, but really steady good jumps. With a great landing position and good ride-out on the toejumps.

ITA. She carries good speed, gets good coverage and is very steady. She could improve her spins but they are adequate.

What I LOVE is how she holds her landings (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=EocT3e95ZFI#t=33s)...not enough skaters do that. Checking the jump and holding that position for about two counts should be worth +1 in GOE because it shows that the skater is in complete control of the landing.

I know! I actually find myself judging a lot of the tangos against that one...none has matched it yet. Yu-Na's Tango de Roxanne comes close, but she was young and not as polished as she was the following year. I'd love to see her skate that program now though...:)

Nice!!! I love her dress--sexy (but not slutty) and contemporary and different.

Glad to hear she is staying in. And she's gotta have one of the best comeback stories ever--anorexia is NOT easy to shake, especially in an appearance-conscious sport like figure skating.

I absolutely love Suzuki, but she is 27 now...staying in until Sochi? Will there also be arthritis medication in the future as well?

Yes I think that is really pushing it!!

It's not like Fumie Suguri (bless her heart) who competed a long time but got nowhere near the podium


????? Fumie has medaled at Worlds 3 times, won the Grand Prix Final once, won 4CC 4 times, came in 5th and 4th at the Olympics, and won numerous Japan Nationals. I'd say she came near the podium. :rolleyes:

Off my rant now, I'm glad Akiko is sticking around. She's a delight.

The Libertango EX, which was choreographed by Kenji Miyamono, was also Takahahi's idea.

He looks so happy to see her winning Bronze. :)
