How did Hughes "FOLD" at worlds??!!! Since when was Baby Hughes going into Worlds as a favorite and then "folded"? Emily didn't fold at Worlds anymore than Kimmie folded at the Olympics. Isn't that the whole point of letting the youngsters compete and find their way. Did Michelle "fold" at 1994 Worlds when she finished 8th?
Shizuka is a great skater and it took her years to learn how to compete and to get that "lucky" break. Cut those kids a break. You may find that Kimmie's early win may or may not bode anything for the future. Emily might skate for years and not win anything; and then have the breaks and the skate of her life at the right time to win an OGM. Then would it even matter that Kimmie won a World title on her first try?
