Alexe is just adorable! Programs a bit junior level though in terms of cutesy. She must've been too excited about her good SP placement and lost focus...smile still there, though-- I'm glad she's still having fun, and she should on her first senior grand prix outing!
One thing I want Zhang to fix is her foot lifted high at the beginning of her jumps.. She lifts it TOO high - it just bugs me somehow. Overall, good work!
3F-2T - holy mule kick!
3F – stepout
Pearl Spin of Awesomeness
Kostner still wins the long, thus far.
Nice job by Alexe, a few pops & stumbles, gorgeous 3-2-2 jump, and a nice double axel. Her tall poweful athletic body helps her with speed & to skate BIG!
Zhang needs to really increase her speed, can't say that enough, this is what Alexe has over on her, as well as better technique on her jumps (when she lands them).
GREAT JOB BY BOTH AMERICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
How come Caroline got such low scores?
CAN'T WAIT FOR MAO!!!
2nd place by Alexe!
*Crosses fingers for Mao*
Mao really needs to lose the choker...
The red clown ruff neckline needs to be less puffy, I think,but otherwise fine.
I enjoyed that program but it's rather dark.
A decent skate from Mao.
