    Yey! She gave a clear short program.:40beers:
    Good for her since she's struggled for the short through this season.
    She went back to the program of two seasons ago but was still gutsy enough to give the minor change and do two jump contents in the second half.
    Go for the Sochi team!! :cheer2::cheer2:

    I feel like now finally we are in an Olympic year. Seeing these skaters having to lay it all on the line to make their Olympic team is much more exciting then anything we saw on the GP. Also the skaters are starting to hit their peak. US Nationals are going to be insane.

    Kanako wants to retire after Olympics. But does she plan to compete at Worlds?

    Hopefully she will reconsider after such a strong showing at Japan Nationals. She is too young to stop competing. So many more wonderful performances ahead of her IMO

    It does seem too early or her to retire, however how many skaters do you wish went out on a high note? Has she said what she plans to do after skating? She seems like the type of person who will always have a fun and interesting life.

    Looks like Kanako has decided to stay at lease for 1 more season. I hope she make a lot of improvements to her skating. This Worlds judges were very harsh on her.

    I thought it was strange how harshly she was called on her underrotations at Worlds considering all of her jumps in Sochi were left untouched, even ones that looked more underrotated than in Saitama.

    She was slaughtered by the judges in both the SP & FS.
    I could not believe how much it went down by.
    Happy to see her skate in the Gala. She really skated well.

    ^ hahaha Adelina loods more matured in these couple of years. Adelina will be on Japanese ice for a few more weeks. Both of them skate in Osaka Exhibition and SOI Japan Tour.

    More photos of Kanako in the backstage.
