At the age of 14, she was still so small and cute.lol http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/...oQ4Rh/x610.jpg
Satoko skated her FS "Poeta" in The Ice 2013 and you can see her more closely in this video. Shame it's a very short clip, though.
As of now, he has landed 3A-3A, 4T-3A, 4S-3A, 4T-3A-3A and 4T-3A-3A-3A-3A-2A (meant to be a triple, but popped) sequences in shows. He can do three 3As in sequence as well, but only attempted in practice.
That shows one more time how stupid IJS is in some regards. Would love to see more variation in jump combination/sequences.
However impressive jumping ability by Hanyu.
I don't even want to think about the blood bath that is to be Japanese Nationals.
3 men out of Takahashi, Hanyu, Kozuka, Oda, Mura and Machida?
And only 3 ladies out of Asada, Suzuki, Ando, Murakami and Miyahara?
Those are some very strong veterans and some very promising up and comers.
It is so upsetting that so many talented and great skaters have to be left home. But if this is the rule, may the best skaters go to Sochi. Let's not have politics or commercial considerations come into play.
Whoops, I forgot about that. Thanks for correcting me, vocal
Based on the rules that JSF will follow to select the Olympic team, Takahashi and Hanyu are pretty much of a lock for Sochi. They would have to severely bomb all the way to Nationals for one between Kozuka, Oda, Mura or Machida to have a chance of taking their place. The fight is for that third spot.
does anyone know, when miki ando has her 'test skate' to show in front of officials?
many b-competitions are in the early season, don't now how she should be assigned to one of those.
Hanyu is back in his hometown Sendai now. He opened practices to the public and media today. He came back to Japan to make cms (speculations: for ANA? or JOC ?) and will go back to Canada on Sept. 3. It seems like he is not going to join JSF's summer camp in Armania.
