Some skaters have different timing for combinations than they do for solo jumps. Usually this is worse for the combination, but it can go the other way too. Also, if nerves factor in at all, when you do a combination, you're usually concentrating a little more on the second jump, which can be what you need to get through a "problem" jump.

I know a lot of people who did at 14 and 15, and they weren't competing for a spot on the Olympic team that year. Moving away at that age and level is not remotely uncommon in skating, and pairs skaters and dancers do it at much lower levels.

Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
According to practice reports, Caroline has been having problem with the flip all week. Between that and the back injury, I can't see her having anything like what could be called a sucessful showing here.
As for the move to Callaghan, I am not enthusiastic. He was not able to help Jenney Kirk or Kimmie when they moved out to him, I don't know why he would help Caroline.

Sorry to hear about Caroline's injury problems. Hope she does OK tonight.

Hope she does well! Always been one of my favorites.

At least she has semi-decent draw this time. Not that I expect it will help her scores at all, but at least she's not the only one skating two hours before the rest of the contenders. Anyway, I hope she does well and smiles in the K&C instead of cringing and looking disappointed. I miss her smile.

Caroline did not do her pearl spin. She never leaves that out. Her back must still be hurting her really bad. Screw the Olympics, Worlds, and all that. Take some time off and recover. Get well. That's what's important.

Another thing. She looks like she's gotten really tall. She was the tallest in the warmup group behind Alexe, I was noticing the length of her torso and it is quite long. Anyone know how tall she is now?
