Have to be honest, I'm kinda disappointed in Rachael's performance. She did a heck of a lot better at Golden West, lots of attitude & oomph there, and the dress was way better (ala yellow with a big black bow in the middle).
She nailed her jumps (scratchy 2A though), but she didn't really let go & get into the music until near the end.
Nevertheless, good job, Rachael!
P.S. Where's the 3/3 combo.???? You'll need it to compete with the top dogs.
Oh no, don't cry, Rachael, you'll come back in the FS!!!!!!!!111
Sing Sing Sing
2a, forward on landing but ok
hmmm.. now I like Rachael, don,t find her boring like many seem to... but she has work to do if she is going to carry this music. I guess it was chosen to bring more spark and speed out of her, but it is kinda swallowing her at this point, I'm afraid to say. Competent performance all the way through, nothing more.
58.80 - I'm rather sad that is ahead of Fumie
Rachael Flat. 3F-2t, 3Lz(possibly flutz), 2A, need loads of work on layback spin and all spins in general. Programm looks good for her as does the dress. Her jumps look lower to me this season. But well done.
58.80, Into 4th place only..hm. Something was deffinately wrong with edges.
Rachael's PCS better than Fumie and Akiko....Umhh.
Nagasu's has a good sp, but Lp is strange first three jumping passes are combos and basically their very little transition or for that matter anything else in that program.
yup...2z no combo, and looked lost coming out of it
i think joannie pop her combo and 2A
not a fan of rochettes program at all....flat, uninspired....please go back to summertime????!!!!
Joannie singled her lutz & her axel, but had a nice 3F. Stumble at the very end of her program. Not her day today, but there's always tomorrow (ala Scarlett O'Hara).
P.S. Joannie Rochette looks so much like Denise Biellmann when she was young that it's scarey (in a good way of course). Both body type, muscles, face, et al.
Yeah Miki, that silver in Vancouver is not necessarily in Canadian hands. You better be watching.
I loved the program though, normally I am meh as far as Rochette's programs are concerned.
