    Losing her boot covers. They look hideous.

    How much less consistent are Alissia's jumps when compared to ,, well, Sasha?

    When I first saw Alissa, I thought she was a much more fluid version of Sasha but even more inconsistent on her jumps.

    I think Alissa clearly has the best spins and spirals in the U.S., maybe even in the World.

    About her chances for the third spot, they're as good anyone below Meissner and better than Kirk's.

    Beautiful extensions and line! However, are the triples on the same level? That determines whether this skater will make it to the podium.

    ^^^^^I believe the young gal in that picture that Mathman posted is Caroline Zhang. She was 4th in Novice Ladies at US Nats this past year in Portland and she is adorable.. She caught my eye as one to watch when I was out there for Nats and I really hope she makes it back to Nats this year! She's got tons of talent and a great presence on the ice.

    gKelly-I love the hydroblading-spiral that Viktoria Pavuk is doing in this picture. Very innovative, and hard to do. Here
