    It's great that Mirai did so well after such a rough season.

    From the posts at FSUniverse, none of the 3 top girls did a triple-triple. I'm not sure why.

    It ended somewhere around 10.30, 10.45. It's why I didn't end up going tonight. Bah!

    They posted reports over at FSUniverse about the Ladies' freeskate. Top 3 finishers in the LP were Rachael, Caroline and Mirai. Mirai seems to have had one fall.

    Overall top 3 were same as short program - Rachael, Mirai and Caroline. They report that all 3 girls were signing autographs for fans after their performances.

    Umm Rachael is probably the second slowest after Caroline of the elite skaters. And Mirai makes both of them look AARP.

    Well Racheal came out with a vengeance. I can't wait to see their programs. Still a low score for Caroline for the free. No falls but she must have had some downgrades. This worries me :/ same goes for Mirar, but she did have a fall.

    Last year, there was a professional video crew at Golden West. I never saw one second of video on YouTube, nor anywhere else. So I think they must have had a no-amateur-video policy in effect.

    With a score that low, I have to believe either Caroline is not fully recovered from her torn miniscus in her knee ..... or she has recovered, but is not yet back to full strength. She has a little over a month to get back into form for TEB.

    Congrats to Rachael. I think this score is a personal best for her. I suspect Caroline is not 100%, her knee injury worries me.

    Flatt and Nagasu are on equal terms in terms of speed at this point in the game. That was readily apparent at Culver City on Sat and Sun nights. It is obvious that both skaters have taken feedback from last season and have applied it to their game plan for this season. Flatt has really worked on her presentation and speed and Nagasu has worked on cleaning up jump technique (she was "measured" in her approach to her jumps...gears were obviously cranking for Mirai). Flatt was much more comfortable in her choreography than many of the other skaters.

    Video ....yes, there were many many reminders made on the public address system that no one was to video any one but their OWN skater. Hurd video is the official videographer for the event.

    Cudos to Flatt and Nagasu. Caroline has much on her plate with France coming up so quickly.
