    TV Asahi's WTT Twitter feed in Japanese has some info on the ladies' practices: https://twitter.com/figureskate5ch
    Via Google Translate: Wagner "was top form" and landed a 3F+3T in opening of her short; Sotnikova landed 3T+3T; Osmond "strong and lively jumping step that was impressive!"

    I like the spirit of this event and am thankful to the loyal Japanese fans who help make it possible. There is real competitive skating, but a light hearted fun atmosphere.

    It's nice to have some serious skating even after worlds. I am not sure yet how much respect the results of WTT have. Probably far less than the worlds or even GPF. That could change after the Olympics.

    I assume Japan gets a 0 in pairs and not 7 points for non participation.

    They should have Mao and Daisuke skate a pair routine. Otherwise, that is not fair to get 7 points.

    The individual Russian and French skaters seem to be dressed for very different events from one another...

    I hope Team France is saving the good stuff for the actual competition.
