Well this is a nice change. Mao Asada of Japan has a smile on her face. Was getting so used to seeing a big puss (case in point – recent press conference) on her face throughout all the recent skating competitions. Such unsportsmanlike behavior.
Yuna Kim’s chances of retaining her world title disappeared when she botched two of her final three jumps in Saturday’s free skate at Turin, Italy. Japan’s Mao Asada took the title for the second time in three years.
And short program leader Mirai Nagasu of the U.S,. came undone, dropping all the way to 7th in the final standings after a free skate with three major errors.
Nagasu was only 11th in the free skate.
Nagasu started badly, with a stepout on her first triple lutz that kept her from doing a combination. Then she had a two-footed landing on her second triple lutz and fell on a double axel. She finished at 175.48.
