Our Japanese correspondent from Pigeon Post, Aiko Shimazu, is in Taipei with media credentials and will be sending us reports from the competition.

Here is information she provided on planned program content. More to come soon!

Miki(ANDO) and Alissa(CZISNY) will have their same elements as GPF.

Mao(ASADA) prepares 3Lo-3Lo in her SP, but her coach said "won't".

Akiko(SUZUKI) plans the second 2Lo(s) instead of 2T(s). And about her 3Lz-1Lo-3S in FS, she won't have it this competition.

Rachael(FLATT), much most challenging program she will perform! 3F-3T in SP and FS, 2A-3Lo in FS as well.

Mirai(NAGASU), will bring back two 3F/3Lz and 2A-3T in her FS again.

Short Program summary from Aiko!

Miki ANDO #19

66.58 TES35.69 PCS30.89 placed 1st

{3Lz-2Lo +1.30, 3Lo +1.20, 2A +0.86, FSSp4 +1.00, SlSt3 +1.07, CCoSp4 +1.00. LSp3 +0.86}

Miki, although "felt not good this morning session", "could get a positive feeling which I'd like to take to Worlds." with her complete program. Powerhouse Miki, poured her power into the elegance. Her Jumps, Spins, Footworks, everything turned more elegant since Japan Nats. Slow and Smooth move needs such power like Miki, and Alissa, who hadn't enough power today, as she has always. Along with so many Japanese flags, Miki raised her new seasons best score!

Mao ASADA #24

63.41 TES 33.20 PCS30.21 placed 2nd

{3A< -2.29, 3Lo +1.10, 3F-2Lo +0.20, CCoSp4 +0.93, FSSp4 +0.93, SlSt3 +1.00, LSp3 +0.93}

In warming-up 6 minutes, Mao tested her 3A twice. The 1st "was overrotated", then the second "was good". But "in competition, not like in practice," her 3A, I saw she slowed down into it, was underrotated and two-footed, though "has processed," confidently Mao said. Also her new tango costume "has processed to Worlds".

Akiko SUZUKI #26

57.64 TES29.61 PCS28.03 placed 6th

{3F(e)< -1.60, 3Lz-2T +0.30, FCSp3 +0.79, LSp4 +0.71, 2A +0.64, CCoSp4 +0.93, SlSt3 +1.14}

Meanwhile, Akiko "didn't fit her 3F combo this morning session." So she lost control in rotating, but "could secure 3-2 combination with 2T on 3Lutz." Rachael, Cynthia(PHANEUF) and Akiko, their intimate and passionate footworks were todays highlights for Taiwanese, unfamiliar with Figure Skating. Akiko left the strong message again, for her last FOR(Fiddler on the Roof): I will complete the program, and this season as well.

Rachael(FLATT), was placed 3rd with Rachael Suites: her new SP "Finale from East of Eden", she "will try a new layout of FS: 2A-3Lo, 3F-3T tomorrow." Along with Akiko, the fastest Lady today: "Bewitched" Mirai(NAGASU) set herself in 4th place, "tuned-up to Worlds" Alissa(CZISNY), a little gymnastic-like performed to 5th place.

Rachael 62.23 TES33.43 PCS28.80

{3F-2T +1.10, 3Lz +1.00, FCSp4 +0.64, LSp3 +0.29, 2A +0.50, SlSt3 +0.93, CCoSp4 +0.57}

Mirai 59.78 TES30.55 PCS29.23

{3Lz<-2t -1.00, 3F(e) -0.30, CiSt3 +0.93, CCoSp4 +1.36, 2A +0.79, FSSp4 +0.86, LSp4 +1.21}

Alissa 58.94 TES 31.00 PCS28.94 Deduction -1.00

{3Lz(fall) -2.10, 3F(e)-2T -0.60, 2A +0.50, FCSp4 +1.00, SlSt3 +0.71, CCoSp4 +1.36, LSp4 +1.43}

Ladies FS summary!

Miki ANDO #21 overall 201.34 1st place

134.76 TES73.03 PCS61.73 placed 1st

{3Lz-2Lo +1.30, 3Lo +1.00, FSSp4 +0.93, CCoSp4 +0.86, ChSp1 +1.86 // 2A-3T +1.30, 3Lz +1.30, 3S +0.90, 3T +1.20, 2A-2Lo-2Lo +0.79, SlSt3 +0.86, FCCoSp4 +1.07}

After enthusiastic 2 PB performances from Rachael and Mirai, Miki raised her PB FS and Total score again! as Miki's GPF FS performance hinted that. When I saw Miki on the ice, I didn't feel she had any mistake on her jump elements at GPF, All-Japan, this 4CC as well. Because of her effortlessness! short preparation, relaxed take-off, you see how easily she flies! But "it was not my best performance," claimed Miki. "I gave the MUCH MUCH better performance at Japan Nats." And a "better skater than I was in 2007", Miki works on her skating speed and 3Lz-3Lo in SP for Worlds in 2011 a month later in TOKYO. (I'm sorry I couldn't attend her mixzone interview.)

Akiko SUZUKI #22 overall 162.59 7th place

104.95 TES49.18 PCS55.77

{1Lz -0.01, 2A-2T +0.57, 3Lo-2A+SEQ +1.20 FCCoSp3 +0.57, ChSp1 +1.29, 3Lz+SEQ -1.10, 3F(e) -1.30, 3Lo -1.40, 3S -1.00, FCSp4 +0.29, SlSt3 +1.07, CCoSp4 +0.64}

To be truly honest, #22 skater, was not Akiko Suzuki as you know, until the song "To Life" for her magical SlSt played and the clapping crowds supported her. Then she came to life. I couldn't ask her there, but I guess: she planned 3Lz-1Lo-3S as her 4th jump. Also she replaced 2A-3T by 2A-2T, 3Lo-2Lo by 3Lo~2A, and would settle 3T as her last jump - {3Lz, 2A-2T, 3Lo-2A+SEQ // 3Lz-1Lo-3S, 3F, 3Lo, 3T} like that. Though she killed quality 2A-3T in warming-up 6 minutes, and her 3Lz-1Lo-2S meant just a stepping out 3Lz (= 3Lz+SEQ) unlike at National Winter Sports Championships. After all, those determined jump elements "checkmated," herself today. I haven't seen such delayed moves from Akiko. But Akiko, as you know, her life won't be checkmated! "Next season, I want to restart my jumps, in oder to complete a program." looked ahead Akiko, "eager to have 3-3 as a competition element." She felt really sorry for her programs that she couldn't show its goodness. Also she wants "to learn how to motivate myself. - Only competition tells you." "Now I remember what I want to perform, that is the most important thing."

Mao ASADA #24 overall 196.30 2nd place

132.89 TES70.18 PCS62.71

{3A +1.29, 3F-2Lo +1.00, 3Lz(e) -0.50, CCoSp4 +1.00, 2A-3T< +0.21, 3F-2Lo-2Lo< -0.40, 3S -0.60, FSSp3 +0.36, SlSt3 +1.00, 3Lo +1.10, FCCoSp4 +1.07, ChSp1 +1.86}

When Mao came on the ice, she seemed not to care about a gold medal. She "just wanted to win back my 3A of SP", then she pulled out "A+!" 3A for her upgraded "Liebestraum", Lori Nichol reworked in Japan for Mao. From starting pose, so many changes are there: element order(ChSp is the last), SlSt, etc… She imagined a girl who wants to meet her fate in former "Liebestraum", today the girl met the one! you can see that in new SlSt. Though the girl "must keep working on underrotated jumps, particularly 2A-3T, that is at hand," Mao said confidently again. "At Worlds, I will portray the girl's Liebestraum(a dream of love)," she smiled at me with her smoothness like her moves. …Her coaches, Nobuo Sato and Kumiko Sato = Papa&Mama Sato need her "both strength and smoothness with her skating", though. Mao progressed at 4CC for Worlds, that's all!
