Reason: added remaining results/scores for Senior Ladies SP Group B
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.
At the rink. Again.
I said that last year before she went to Nationals as a Novice.

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.

Sylvia, please know how much we appreciate your reports!
Thank you GM. I'll remember those numbers when I am in St. Paul.

How old is Dee Dee by any chance?
here's dee dee leng SP on youtube:
She has a gorgeous 3lutz-3toe!!
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.
