What happened to Gracie Gold competing? Scheduling conflict?
And the design of the official HP was changed.
Shizuka Arakawa is now on the roster for the Medal Winners Open.
Plushenko vs Chan vs Takahashi...
22 skaters will participate in the gala Carnival on Ice !
OMG, can you believe this !?
and they are expecting more....
A preview program on Japan Open was shown on TV yesterday.
It was actually a "post-view" since Daisuke, Takahiko and Akiko
watched the videos of the past Japan Opens since 2006,
revisited the experience and made comments.
It brings back some memories...
Philippe Candeloro! OMG this is too much. Will they allow back flips? Will the competitors be required to keep their shirts on?
Love it. The fans will be passing out from screaming given the roster.
Wow... the Medal Winners Event looks exciting! I think Team Japan has the greatest chance of winning.
Can't wait to see the skaters' new programs.
Re-posting these links from the Daisuke Takahashi thread in the Trash Can:
Re-posting the following info from the Medal Winners Open thread in GSD:
What about Keyhole? Not great quality but better than nothing!
Is anyone able to read the site well enough to determine if a link is now available for where results will be posted?
Many of the links are images and thus can't be translated...
I believe the results and protocols will be posted here:
Why was Gracie replaced with Agnes?
No one knows That caused quite a confusion.
Just my guess (no proof)
I think Gold is seriously aiming for the US national title and #1 spot for worlds. In that case, she and her coach might want to avoid to face their biggest rival (wagner) at this early season competition. They happily accepted the offer in the first place but after knowing Wagner is also invited, they have changed the minds. Considering past several years, Rochette should have the priority.
It's pretty much obvious Zawadzki is favored by the USFS and they "recommended" her to the JO organizers.
You can read the flash news of Japan Open originally in Japanese.
Starting time: 18:00 Oct 6 at local time (Japan Standard time is UTC plus 9 hours.)
Small clip of today's practice of Japanese skaters, Daisuke, Takahiko, Mao and Akiko.
This is not today's practice but you can see Mao's Swan Lake for some seconds.
^^^Thanks rosewood. Mao seems to be skating well. Can't wait to see all the new programs and the fantastic vintage skaters back on ice.
YAY!! Japan Open is starting in an hour Can't wait to see the new programs of the top skaters!
Yesterday Mao jumped beautiful 3A. And aloso her 3Lo and 3F-2Lo-tano2Lo look nice But Mao is not planning 3A today, maybe later in the season.
This season Daisuke plans to jump 2 qうads in his free program, and it's so exciting His new program looks nice and dramatic as always.
Heard that Kurt will skate Nyah for CaOI. Wow!
Here's the flush news
Can I do pbp here? Please start a thread if it should go to K&C.
I can see Kurt, Joannie, Yuka, Kumiko, Reeds, Philippe, and Nagakubo in the stand.
Thanks, Rosewood. So Jeff Buttle brings a new program, Piano Concerto by Scriabin. Would it be the only performance of this program for a while? Wow.
Does anyone know if there is going to be a live stream?
No live stream nor live TV.
That's unfortunate, but at least it seems that you will be doing PBP, Thanks midori!
Lol plushenko must be number five
Kozuka's costume reminds me of last years', with a bit of twist.
This is quite a lineup of men.
jumps are on for all. most jumps during the warm ups by any of them were good.
Michal doubled 4s twice without landing a good one.
