    Although Laura´s Worlds freeskate was not very successful jumpwise, let´s remember that at the Olympics she was 4th in the freeskate. Besides, I have understood that Laura´s jump content includes all the other triple jumps except triple axel and triple flip. In the Olympic season she brought in a successful triple lutz, hopefully a successful triple flip will follow soon...

    Laura is a wonderful skater, in my opinion. I just hope that her training will include complete freeskate run-throughs every day, to give her more confidence!!!

    Meh. With her series of doubled jumps, I hope not. If she could demonstrate that the Olympic LP was not a one time occurrence, then yeah! She has superior skating skills, presentation and posture than so many of the current top contenders. I would like to see her rewarded for that, but frankly I don't see her winning gold unless other skaters make huge mistakes (which I just wouldn't want).

    From the technical standpoint, why is her technique prones to popping triples into doubles? Is that because she has so much speed?

    Everything's possible, depending on what her competition does. Or does not.
