Fair use image[edit]

Seems like the fair use image was deleted so we need a new one. —Tokek 05:57, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Cross-grab Biellmann[edit]

Some users are confused about Asada's "signature move", the cross-grab Biellmann. Asada does perform the move during her spiral sequence, and not in her layback spins. The one she executes in her spins are just a regular Biellmann, but done with just one hand (right hand on the right leg). The one she does in her spiral sequence is the true cross-grab Biellman, because it is done with her left hand on her right leg.

You can verify what a cross-grab Biellmann is by going to the Biellmann article. There it mentions "A variation where the opposite hand is the one used to lift the leg is called a cross-grab Biellmann. The other hand may or may not be added in this position."Solanus 10:28, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Ok that makes sense. The only thing is that since it's her spiral sequence wouldn't it be called a cross-grab biellman spiral?

Yeah, I wanted to mention that in the article; that she does it in her spiral sequence, but users delete it because they don't believe that is the cross-grab. Hopefully they'll see this in the future. —Solanus 03:05, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

First woman to land a triple Axel[edit]

I'm Japanese. It is not good at English and acknowledge it, please. She is not "First woman to land a triple Axel in the short program". Because it is in Midori Ito to jump for the first time at short program('91 NHK Trophy). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 218.224.135.187 (talk) 21:02, 16 February 2007 (UTC).

Ok, I tried searching online and didn't find anything to verify this, so I went straight to the source and viewed a video of the program. I'm surprised to find that Midori DID land a triple axel/double toe combo. And it was clean! But then I realized the info in Mao's article is still correct, because she was the "First woman to land a triple Axel in the short program at an ISU Championship". It doesn't mean she's the first to ever land the axel in a SP, but just the first to land it in one of the four ISU Championships (Euros, Worlds, Jr. Worlds, and 4 Continents).

After doing some research on all this, I would also like to mention that Midori was not the first woman to land the triple axel in a SP. That record goes to the notorious Tonya Harding. Byxbee 04:59, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Season 2007-2008 Exhibition Music[edit]

I've edited the Exhibition music, since Chopin doesn't have in his repertoire anything with the name "So Deep Is The Night". Instead he has "Étude Op.10 No.3 in E major, (Tristesse)", which is with the addition of the vocal of Lesley Garrett forms the song "So Deep Is The Night". (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lesley-Garrett-So-Deep-Night/dp/B0000E3HLX). Thus: "Étude Op.10 No.3 in E major, (Tristesse)" - Frederic Chopin; vocal - Lesley Garrett.

Excuse me my English. --Catcherr 00:55, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Asada meaning[edit]

What does Asada mean in Japanese? What are it's origins? (This is random, I'm just wondering) Alex (talk) 22:31, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

浅田 means "shallow rice field". Her ancestors were likely farmers who raised rice. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 06:25, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Coaching change?[edit]

Unless there is confirmation from a reputable source that Asada has left Tarasova, I don't think it's appropriate to list the latter under "Former Coaches". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.247.102.93 (talk) 13:40, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Head image[edit]

Me and Tabercil had a small discussion about a head image in the article (depicting Mao Asada's press conference). Working on File:Mao Asada 2010 OP Press conference adjusted.jpg, I washed out the background, which should actually be vibrant green. I feel that the background color doesn't matter because noone cares about it, but Tabercil said such color changes make the image unfaithful. So, he created File:Mao Asada 2010 OP Press conference exp.jpg. Of course, it matters little which of two pictures would appear in the article, but we decided to ask for other users' opinion to be sure and to avoid any dispute. If you agree with Tabercil, then I will delete the "washed out" version. -- deerstop. 09:56, 27 April 2010 (UTC)


good day!

This is about mao asada 2011-2012 season, it was written that her carrer in 2011-2012 that her free skate in gp nhk trophy 2011 is 85.45,     and in her detailed result is 125.77.

I would like to request to please correct the one written in her carrer. That would be asada gathered 125.77 points in free skate not 85.45 point.

Thank you very much.

Axel jumps table[edit]

I'm of the opinion that the triple axel jump table does not belong in an encyclopedia. This is like listing all the home runs for a baseball player or slam dunks for basketball player. Listing every event an athlete performed a specific move isn't encyclopedic. Ping Morrichelle: if I remeber correctly, you were the editor who worked hard to create this table. Ping NeilN: this is similar to various discussion on Kim Yuna page. Quering for thoughts; if I don't hear anything in the next couple days, I'll go forward with bold edit. Thanks, Kirin13 (talk) 00:15, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I agree with you. Wikipedia is not a sports almanac. --NeilN talk to me 00:45, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
I'm fine with it (btw, still don't know how to use the talk page). --User:Morrichelle(talk) 11:07, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
