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.
Thank you so much midori!
silk-white shirt with frills and black pants

What's the word better than "exquisite"?
Kurt was screaming something to him, which I could hear from the other side of the rink
last years program
1t or 1f

Thanks, Midori so much for the PBP!

Thanks midori for the PBP
Thank you, midori!
Kozuka was showing somwthing more than "a great introvert skater" but it wasnot quite visible today.
4t fall again
3f in the middle of the rink
step sequence charming
chss very smooth
oh this is quite a melt down, even for Patrick.
Thank you very much Midori.
Ouch for Chan
for Patrick. At least it's very early in the season.
My thanks as well - very much appreciate the pbp
4t2t the 2t was a bit wild
3?z2t2l may have been 2z. his jumps are a bit off
music change to swan, that explaing this costume
step sequence with swan arms
very strange music change
chss with Y position attempt
Not much with his charm either today.
While I love Evgeny, I am very surprised he got standing ovations with
this performance. Not so big, but still.
Com'on guys, both Patrick and Evgeny were doing great at the warm up.
No 3a? Not good for chan or plushenko. Both bad days. Very bad.
Don't follow suits!
Utako, Takeshi, and Morozov are standing at the board.
4t good boy
4t1t 4t was 2ft
going to the referee (as choreographed)
chss with big long curves
I am not very sure if my jumps calls are correct, especially for Dai.
overall standing ovations.
Team Japan leads after the men? Did it happen before?
Thank you Midori for the pbp. YAY for Dai!
Nice for Takahashi.
Thanks for the pbp
BTW http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/channel/live/show/winter/1352&manual=1 is doing pbp and their jumps calls are different from mine at many places.
My jump eyes are very rusty after the off season and I think theirs must be more accurate as professionals, so please refer them as well.
YAY for Daisuke and Takahiko
I'm impressed that 4 of 6 tried 2 quads in this early season!
Thanks for the PBP, Midori.
