    ALISSA CZISNY Official Thread

    Alissa is simply one of the best! She is arguably the best spinner in the world and has the best spirals and personally, she is the most good looking and beautiful (in and out) among the skaters.

    Alissa certainly did very well for herself. The first American GPF ladies' medal since 2003, and first champion since 2002. It was also the first ISU championship won by a U.S. lady since Kimmie won 4CC in 2007. ( Of course, we can debate whether the GPF is a "championship", but we'll save that for later. )

    After all the talk of triple-triples, it's kind of poetic justice that the American lady to end our international medal drought is Alissa. And she didn't do it because everyone else fell, either. Those sublime spins! I hope this is the beginning of an era of podium results for her, and for the U.S.

    I just want...one improvement from Alissa.
    It is not exciting...watching her perfomance with the implanted SMILE on her face.

    Otherwise...she is one of the most ELEGANT skater in the Worlds.
    I want to see her ANGRY face sometime.

    Count me in in the Alissa's official gushing thread.

    Yesterday I watched on NBC. Alissa finished her last move, looked down and smiled, and then bit her lower lip with smile. It seemed that she was afraid of letting her joy and hope go too high. Don't know why, at that moment, my eyes were full of tears. It's so rare to me.

    Alissa has touched so many's hearts so deep with her exquisite, graceful appearence on ice and her adorable smile. She is not consistant but she is definitely the best in US ladies in the current field.

    It made my weekend. One of the best things about following figure skating closely is that you notice gems that have never won a world medal. And when they finally have their day - it just makes you so happy to be a figure skating fan. Takes your mind off things in the best way possible.

    Alissa's victory was the highlight of the season so far. Thanks Alissa!!!

    This says it all. Who would have thought?

    American ladies have not won a world medal in 4 years. Will it happen this year, and if it does, who will be the one to do it?

    I feel like this season, where Joannie is out, Alissa is taking her place. A top contender who isn't asian and doesn't have a 3-3 but the other great qualities in their skating make up for it. And they aren't teenagers either, both are on the "older" end of skaters, particularly in North America.

    I dunno, that seems a little reductive.

    I kind of get what you mean, but for me the connection's very faint because the two are so different. Alissa makes up for her average jumps by banking on her spins, Joannie vice-versa (how I miss her quality triples). Their skating styles are very different. Expression-wise, quite different as well. In a field that includes Joannie and Alissa, I definitely see Joannie as the stronger competitor (the 120+ JO S&D )

    With Joannie, Yu-na and Mao off this GP season, I rooted for Alissa. She's like a breath of fresh air with that Winston piece. I can't believe she's actually pulling it off. I'm usually a sucker for amazing jump technique, but Alissa's beautiful qualities (and those costumes ) got me.
