    It's called PCS, . At the international comps Emily did, she got PCS in the 5s while Kwan on her worst Worlds ever got PCS in the 7s.

    I think that was where the US Nationals was judged against the internationals? Where Katy got 5s, Emily got around 6s? And now look what Katy got at 4CC? Total 10 points more PCS over her Nationals SP?

    Yep and with not nearly as much grace as Michelle has in her little toe. Few years time and Emily will be great, right now she just doesn't have the flair and it is about the total package, IMO. Emily will be 20 the next Olympics...she has plenty of time.

    Well, I say Congrats! to Michelle not only for making the Olympic team but also being in better shape at this point than I think most people reckoned.
    She landed 4 triples in the LP and only missed the 2 axel in her SP - I believe she was allowed to start jumping only on January 17 or so? That was less than two weeks ago! It'll be interesting to see how much further along she is 3 1/2 weeks from now -

    Soogar, don't let this problem you have with Michelle ruin your life. She's just a figure skater trying to do the best she can like everyone else. It will be all right.

    No question MK deserves to go if healthy, which she apparently is. Irina is still the favorite, and if she does all her technical elements will almost assuredly win. But, if MK does all the jumps listed earlier, even w/o a 3loop or a 3/3, she can most definitely compete with Irina, Sasha and the Japanese contingent (and I guess home town girl Carolina) for the podium. I don't feel sorry for Emily at all, and I'll bet she knows Michelle should skate instead of her. Plenty of time for her down the road. Now, had Alissa skated her best and been 2nd or 3rd at Nats, and either her or Kimmie replaced, THEN there might have been a controversy.

    And she only started training the 2a on Thursday! (as in only a day ago)

    I don't see that a 3/3 would be of any benefit unless she plans to do another double axel which given that that is jump that causes the injured groin the most pain, i would doubt. If she's leaving the loop out, there's nothing to gain my doing a 3/3.

    What should the USFSA have done? Told Emily that "we don't think you are as capable as Michelle of dealing with this and of triumphing anyway?"

    It sounds like Michelle has made amazing progress with her jumps in just two weeks. Good for her!! Best wishes to Michelle for two terrific Oly performances.

    Congratulations to Emily as well for earning as spot as the alternate on the Oly team and being named to the World team. That is quite an accomplishment for her, in her first full season as a Sr. and at her age.

    It sounds like Michelle is coming along great for a full recovery by the Oly's. I'm thrilled for her as this has obviously been an important goal over the last 4 years. And I am happy for Emily too as one of the bright future prospects for the US team.

    Emily has a lot of style and flair. I definitely don't think that Baby Hughes is going to hang around until she is 20 years old. The parents strongly encouraged Sarah to go to school instead of tour as a reigning OGM. I think that Emily will be attending an Ivy League school when she is 20 instead of competing for the US.

    And what is wrong with that? There have been other athletes who have competed while attending school, and if Emily "just" chooses to go to an Ivy League school,. the best of luck and she will have a wonderful future that many other young adults can only dream of, Olympics or not.

    Nothing wrong about that, but she lost her one shot to go to the games and folks act like there's going to be another shot for her b/c she's 16. I don't believe that will be the case for Emily.

    Soogar, I'm sorry but you're sounding more and more ridiculous. We all know you have an agenda against Michelle, but please come up with something more solid.

    And please take Mathman's advice, lighten up and enjoy life; surely this hatred of Michelle is detrimental to your health.
