Last year at the Jr Worlds free skate conference both Rachael and Mirai stated they wanted to bring a triple axel in their programs for this season. And as we know neither of them did. A triple axel is something I only believe when I see it. There's absolutely no way Rachael's going to attempt one in LA as Joesitz speculated. But his statement was probably hypothetical.
Rachael is practicing a 3A according to the article. When she feels confident about it, she will put it in her competitive program.
Now my real question is: Who are the Tech Panelists for each division? This Panel, imo, has a very powerful voice in the results of a championship. (Chuckum has already given us the nationalities of the judges.)
