Skate America is still on its run but that means Miki will be in Russia soon.

According to her MAF post she is practicing in Nagoya now without her coach, and that her numbness on her right hand that she's had since a bit before CoC turned out to be because of some neural stress in her elbow. Her doctor says it will eventually vanish, and that's some relief.

Let's hope she does her best at Rostelecom !

YES!! The Miki Ando Victory Tour 2010 moves to Russia. I just checked out Kanako on You Tube and she's great - 2nd place SP. Another Team Japan fav after Miki & Mao. My dream of 3 on the podium at Sochi is taking another step toward fuition.

I wasn't aware of her numbness. Thank God it will get better!

I love you

I can't wait for Cup of Russia! I also hope Miki does her best!

cheers

A TV-Asahi crew tweeted some minutes ago that his honest impression on Miki's official practice is:
"She sure is stable. A nice smile at the end of her practice."

They are basically the same report by Kyodo News and it says in short words that Miki and Akiko both look very good in practice and that Miki landed several very clean 3-3s despite her waist muscle sprain she got before coming to Moscow.

TV-Asahi news aired half an hour ago Miki's 3-3 attempts, all of them good and especially one of them incredibly clean.
She also was taken shoots of her confirming rotations off-ice.
I think it was in the corridor of the Megasport arena.

Hi!
I can't even tell you how upset I am. Believe me, Miki's perfomance was one of the best. I don't understand why she was given such low marks. She was the most welcomed ice skater this evening and was really happy and Nikolai was satisfied with her perfomance.

I'll post some photos a bit later.

I totally believe you. I often feel Miki is underscored. Evil or Very Mad

Now I will watch her SP. Thank you for the link.

Miki = 54.00?? What the $%*#!! Looks like Miki got riped off from what we see on the You Tube vid.. Sad . She'll come back on the free skate and blow them away and then hopfully she get a fair score. Fingers crossed.

I don't know if anyone else noticed that Miki had a bandage on her back. I heard that she had had a collision in practice (not sure when that happened) and she was having pain.

From what I hear the collision took place on the day before she parted Japan and flew to Russia.

But the main reason IMO for her low points in TES is that she was self coached after CoC and that was not enough to analyse the lack of levels in her spins.
This season the details of the rules on spins are very complicated and there must be some misunderstandings of the mandatory rotation numbers and so forth.

Thanks Emik !
So I was half right and half wrong.

Miki says she couldn't get the right timing going in to the second loop to make it a triple.
And that UR on her flip...

And the layback spin didn't have enough rotations on each position but she had to stop with the music.

All these IMO are related to her injured backside waist but Miki says she's trying not to think about it (injury).

I really hope she does all her best, and at the same time wish her not to further injure herself.

ETA: In the latest source from Fuji network, according to the reporter,
http://www.fnn-news.com/news/headlines/articles/CONN00188258.html
Miki says she might change (or make changes to?) the SP music or take some other means so that just in case even when the jumps don't come clean the rest would be more attractive.

As much as I love her new SP, I think that judges aren't liking it.

Evil or Very Mad

Maybe she'll change the whole SP, like last season. I thought about how wonderful it would be if she used Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence.

I love you

She wouldn't have to use the same order of the elements, nor the same music cuts. But I think it would be nice to see Miki skate to Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence again.

I love you
