    Katrina and Caroline can form a "Top American Lady at 4CC Club".

    Good luck to Katrina in her last (and also second after the 2008 4 Continents Championship) ISU Championship! However, part of me feels sorry for her that the required jumps out of steps this year is the Lutz -- she doesn't have a triple, which will put her at a distinct disadvantage after the short, won't it? :(

    ^^ You're right! I hadn't thought of that yet! I'm not sure..Maybe she *will* attempt a triple... She's taken it out of her programs all season, but she attempted it at Nationals last year, if I remember it correctly she landed it but wanted to do it in combination and then messed up the second jump.

    So, could she do a double lutz?

    She did the 3Z at nationals and 4CC last year, maybe she's training it again for JW this year.

    She could, but a lot of people are predicting her to be on the podium, and for that she'd have to be near the top after the SP, and doing only a double would put her at a disadvantage... :S I also hope she's training the triple, but I wouldn't want her to get injured trying too hard, either...
