Mai Mihara: I watched the European Championships and was delighted and amazed by so many high quality quads performed by Russian ladies. This is something incredible! I would also like to be able to jump quadruple. But so far I have not had successful attempts of triple axel and quads. So in order to compete with them I have to focus on doing perfectly the things that I can do. And to provide a very high quality program, at the level of perfection. But again, I was really amazed and take my hat off to the Russian skaters.

Should quads be allowed in the women’s short program? I have to think. But first I need to learn how to jump and land a quad. (laughs)
