Brandon Mroz (JGP Vienna) won the Jr Men's event this weekend with two very good performances, Alexe Gilles won theJr ladies event (JGP Lake Placid) and Rachael Flatt won the Sr Ladies event (JGP Vienna..she skated in Sr ladies but put out her Jr version programs out in prep for the JGP...very nice 3Lz-3T in the LP!). Jeremy Abbott was scheduled to compete in Sr Men, but the event was cancelled as Braden Overett w/d due to his injury.

I saw Bebe land a great 3/3 in practice.... but i had no idea she was so serious about landing them in competition. I am really excited for her... i hope that she can pull it togther by nationals, she was so good and solid in practice.
I can't belive Danille was placed ahead.... bebe was clearly the winner on practice ice!
BTW, Rachael Flatt won the Broadmoor (59.00 SP, 82.52 FS [injury], 141.52 overall), Liberty (49.96 SP, 107.19 FS, 157.15 overall) and Colorado Championships (no scores available). Rachael attempted the 3Z3T in her Broadmoor SP and Liberty SP and FS and got credit for it in the Broadmoor SP and Liberty FS.
Of course, Rachael won't be able to go to Worlds because she is too young. BeBe has a chance to go, but she has to be able to land her jumps at the US Championships.
I wonder why Bebe doesn't try 3lutz3 toe. Wouldn't that be easier to land?
Bebe Liang landed 3lutz-3loop in her FS at 2003 Nationals (it wasn't televised, unfortunately).

Oh, i cant wait some reports from this competitions. Maybe someone will be at Central Ontario Section's (COS) Summer Skate, August 16-19, Thornhill, ON?
Taylor Firth scored well here (better than at Liberty), with 46.33 in the Senior Ladies SP and 89.46 (with 2 deductions) in the FS. Link to IJS results:
I hope Taylor Firth gets a JGP assignment. Those scores would have put her on the podium in the 2006 JGP.
