    Saw on Golden Skate that Fernandez landed 3 quads. :kickass:

    Kozuka and Abbott also skated pretty well.

    Thank you. I had found that JSF result page, but nothing was there yet. I guess I'll just have to wait. Maybe they will update it on Monday. :)

    And yet her fans until now are still b!tching about Yuna's score in 2013 Worlds and Vancouver when in fact both of the programs were clean. :rolleyes:

    Mao seems to always get a boost while skating in Japan but if the report is accurate 135 for 3 triples is ridiculous. :lol:

    Why is everyone talking about 3 triples for Mao? I thought she landed 6? Reports say she did 3A (df but rotated), 3F-2Lo, 3Lz, 2A-2T, 3S(hand down), 3F-2Lo-2Lo, 3Lo.
    That's 6 rotated triples, no?

    From the initial report two hours ago, which oddly enough was just modified a few minutes ago. That's why I said if the report was correct, it's a generous score because sometimes people get it wrong. Now the report lists her as having 5 triples and a overturn of a 3axel. :slinkaway

    I don't think it's her oficial new PB, because Japan Open isn't ISU competition. She did great job though, I hope she'll show her best at the olympics.

    It might be my mistake. Actually Sponavi said "over her pb" so I changed my original post. Thank you.:)

    It continually amazes me that Rochette skates so well at this event year after year after year when she hasn't had a coach since the 2010 Olympics and doesn't train anywhere as much as her Olympic eligible competitors here. Ever since she's been coachless, she has managed to finish 1st or 2nd in this event, which is really impressive. It seems being a professional skater has freed her. She looks so stunning! I can't wait to watch her performance! Congratulations, Joannie! :cheer2:

    Good start for Ashley, too! Wow, above Adelina and Kanako. Right onnnnnnnnnn!!!!! Ashley knows that she has to pump-up the difficulty to be in contention for Sochi medal.

    Woah, what the heck is Adelina wearing here? :eek:

    I wished people (on other boards, at least) would stop making me feel like a bad Daisuke fan because his LP here didn't convert me into a sobbing ball of tears. It's early in the season, and Dai has never been consistent! Remember how generally good his 2011-2012 season was? And still he had outings like his GPF SP, that was beyond messy. Last season he started by winning JO, but it didn't help him all that much. I don't think this one performance here holds that much merit... let's wait until the GP with getting worried.

    But huge, huuuuuuge yeah's for Kozu and Javi! :respec:

    And I get that one could argue Mao's score is too high, but does it fall that much out of line compared to what she got at the GPF 12 or worlds 13? Yes, it's higher, but JO isn't an official ISU competition, and there are generally certain... differences between ISU and non-ISU competitions.
    Regardless of the scoring, given that Mao is usually not an early season skater at all, that was an amazing outing!

    Kudos to Ashley for landing 3-3 combo! Love her dress - great color! - but would love it more if it were more defining at the waist.

    Booby Prize among costumes: TACKY LONG SILVERY-WHITE GLOVES on Adelina. I hope that she dumps the long gloves - all gloves - before the Grand Prix season. Maybe she can wear last year's fabulous LP dress?
