    News, views & results from Skate Detroit 2007

    I'm at Skate Detroit! Here are all the Senior, Junior and Novice results I have so far.

    My jump shorthand: z=lutz, r=loop
    CAN = Canadian skaters
    U.S. skaters' regional (based on home club published in program book) is included in parentheses.

    ***These are UNOFFICIAL results and score typos and other errors are possible.***

    That's a lot of work, Sylvia. Thank you. There are so many skaters whom I do not know at all.

    I'm not sure what those scores represent in terms of being impressive. For example is 44 considered good and 50 is impressive?

    Looks like we have another US Junior skater to look out for, and this one has a 3-3 (Deedee Leng).

    Wow, thanks Sylvia. What would we do without you.

    I wonder what happen to Katy. It's nice to see Kirsten Olsen skating. She also had a 3/3. Looks like she did pretty good with her skate. Rough outing for Megan Oster.

    I said that last year before she went to Nationals as a Novice.

    44 would be around the bare minimum required to make it into the top 24 at Worlds, for the ladies. I expect that number to continually rise in the next several years, as the younger skaters who were brought up around the CoP continue to make the sport more competitive. This past year, the 24th ranked Short Program for the ladies at Worlds scored 44.91.

    For the men, a score in the high 50's is needed for a top 24 placement at Worlds. The 24th ranked male in the Short Program at this year's Worlds scored 59.37.

    Thank you GM. I'll remember those numbers when I am in St. Paul.

    This appears to be a pretty big event, though many of the skaters are not very well known. The U.S.F.S.A. home page does not have anything on it yet. You'd figure there would be some photos, a story, something.

    She flutzes and the landing of the toeloop had a minor bobble. I'm very surprised that got a positive GOE.

    WOW. This is what bravura is all about. Sell it girl, you got the virtuosity.

    At 13 in 2007, she will be 16 in 2010! Is she eligible for Olys? What a battle this will be between the Lyric Caroline and the Bravura Dee Dee.
