That's my impression as well (that the 3A may be a goal for her next season)... at least according to the latest Rachael Flatt article linked in this thread in the Worlds forum: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27153

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.

But neither hold GP events. It's the Big Six in Judging was what I mentioned.

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.)
