My favorite Japanese athlete Mao Asada, who won the champ last year, failed but she keeps in the seventh grade in the short program.
I wonder if she might be slump getting away from the girl to the woman.
Her performance is very sharp and elegant but something passionate punch is missing.....compared to her rival Kim.
Kim's performance seems much more mature than Mao's even though Mao's skating were strict and perfect.
Mao is now on the way to grow up and still unknown possibility.
I really love to see her revival performance as a mature woman.
We are all together, Japan! Cheering our Mao!
