British Eurosport link is working for me.

120 for Suzuki is great, I wonder if the others will catch her or not

Now would it be a first if Kanako actually moves up in the freeskate? In this field could (should?) surely happen...
Good skate and score for Suzuki! Kanako's grown so much since juniors!
great jumps from Kanako so far... PLEASE!!
THAT'S MY GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY
3flip 1axel sequence
3toe tiny slip
technically very good but the skate left me very cold - where is the charming Kanako from two years ago?
Murakami: what a dancer. I loved this program and her performance. If only she didn't look down so much.
3S 2T 2L
Kanako is adorable, and her posture has improved a bit, but she really needs to work on her extension. And that horrible layback!
Omg Murakami is bringing it! Hell yes!!!!
Really enjoyed that from Kanako!
WOW!!! I love this program! She moves so gorgeously on ice
Your jumps are great, but please PLEASE fix your layback spin, such an ugly freeleg position with the bent limp knee and the foot just hanging. Thanks!
Best I've seen her skate in awhile though!
Murakami looked downright scared until the last minute of her program. She has lost some of the spunk over the years.
Jump teknik is horrid.
She's adorable as soon as she finishes!
Rockin' Finnish commentator: "And that was supposed to be a flip but it turned out to be a flop."
The audience could not seem any more unimpressed the barrage of triples from Murakami.
I have a hard time watching Murakami. Too many weird technique flaws just disrupt everything for me. I think she learned her lutz & flip from Caroline Zhang.
footwork, somewhat tango-y, I guess, ending in a pose, where music changes.
spin, layback, sideways, haircutter, Bielmann
building up speed for a 3loop-2loop
another flip, half loop, 1axel
sal, 2loop, 2loop
flying sit, cannonball, broken leg
twizzles & other footwork, catchfoot backward spiral
back camel-Ispin, crunch sit (name escapes me), sit/upright hybrid to end.
BARK LESS. WAG MORE.
