    Wow Thrilled to see her FS earlier than GPS! Definitely she's been expanding her market in Japan. ;)

    And given the Japanese' obsession with donut spins, Sot can really gather a huge following with her new flying camel:p

    I just happened to see this promo preview of Carnival on Ice. Actually I was surprised at two points. One is like...Wow Kevin appeared in COI pp!!:eek: He's promoting one of the biggest Gala show in Japan at last!!:kickass: And the other is he's promoting COI in Japanese. He's saying "Kevin Reynolds desu. Carnival on Ice de tanoshimini shitekudasai" That means "I'm Kevin Reynolds. Have fun at Carnival on Ice." His Japanese is as fluent as usual.:respec: But there is a small mistake. "wo" might be more natural than "de" in this case, and the meaning of the full sencence changes to "Don't miss Carnival on Ice". But people can understand what he intended, so no problem.;) Love him.!:cheer:

    It's announced on the official site that Kevin Reynolds withdrew from Japan Open for the reason of the inflammation of his knee. Jeremy Abbott replaced him. Wishing his fast and full recovery.

    Hope Kevin has a speedy recovery and is ready by the time of his GP assignments.

    ....but having Joannie, Ashley, Jeremy and Jeff on the same team is all kinds of :swoon: :cheer:

    Awww, poor Kevin.

    I'm so glad we're getting close to the Japan Open though! Can't wait to see the new Olympic programs.

    Oh so sad to hear of Kevin's injury. The fans in Japan truly appreciate his persona. But it is a prudent thing for him not to aggravate the injury further with a long journey and a competition which does not mean as much as the upcoming Grand Prix. Heal well and fully Kevin!

    Practice report by "Sportsnavi" (sorry in Japanese)
    Seems the reporter doesn't know figure skating well enough to report in detail.
    http://live.sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/live/sports/figureskate_all/1857/

    Rough summary(My bad translation from Japanese to English)

    Mens:
    Abbott: He tried many jumps. He didn't do any major mistakes and checked his skating.
    Brezina: He showed splendid step works to the music and nailed 3-3.
    Buttle: Fell on 3A and landed on the second trial but shaky. He showed skilfull skating to the music.
    Fernandez: His first quad trial was shaky and the second one was successful. He nailed 3-3. Seems he's in good shape.
    Kozuka: He showed smooth skating to the music. He landed triple-jump(shaky), managed to land the second triple-jump and again shaky on 3-2-2. He was inconsistent with his jumps.
    Takahashi: He began his practice with edge works and showed smooth stepworks to his music without trying any jump. Later he tried a quad and fell on it. He tried less jumps than other skaters.

    Ladies:
    Asada: She began her practice with routine edge works. She went into the preparation for the jumps without jumping. She showed light step works to the music but didn't show any jumps in her run through. Later she nailed some triple-jumps.
    Murakami: She also didn't show any jumps in her run through. Later she tried some jumps and they were almost successful, including 3-3.
    Rochette: She tried triple-jump(shaky), landed 3-2 and the last triple-jump was successful.
    Sotnikova: She did successful 3-3, showed skillful footwork and the triple-jump in the second half was also successful. Seems she is in good shape.
    Wagner: She fell on 3-3, landed the triple-jump in her runthrough. Later she tried triple-jumps for three times. She checked her jumps carefully.
    At the end of the session other skaters were talking with their coaches or drinking water. Asada showed successful 3-3 and got a hand.

    (any correction is welcome:))

    Man, they're dropping like flies. I hope his knee gets better soon. Thrilled for Jeremy, though!

    Thanks for the report, can't wait to watch this! :) Here's hoping Mao brings back her 3axel this season. I'll never ever forget her 2010 Olympic FS (ranks amongst my best ever, right behind Sarah Hughes). When she landed both 3axels I felt soooo empowered as a woman I honest to God wanted to run around the block a hundred times!

    And my heart goes out to another favorite of mine, Kevin Reynolds, please heal fast and come back roaring for the Olympic Season! I so want to see your AC/DC program. :respec:

    Mao's axel looks so casual. She makes it look like the rest of her triples. So effortless. The flip/loop is looking just perfect as well.

    Nabou Sato has made her jumps look so casual and matter of fact. I am impressed. With that flutz, she needs axel and 3/3 combinations to come close to Kim.

    Shame there isn't any. :soapbox: TV Tokyo begins airing the recorded program in 4 hours. Figure Skating is barely popular there so they want to air it in the prime time. :shuffle:
