For the sake of her confidence, I wish she had not competed this year. You could tell that she really wanted a good free skate after her short program and some of her energy deflated. It's tough to compete in an environement where you were on top and then have fallen. I think a post Olympic year is the perfect year for a 'vet' who needed to address a lot of technique issues to go off radar for one season. Oh, well - I hope she realizes that she's got a lot of support and that she's improved, regardless of her placement.
There's something about Caroline that just draws me in. In many ways, she's similar to Alyssa - both beautiful, flexible and wonderful spinners with jump issues. So, Caroline, keep in working because Alyssa is, too.

I watched them live last night. It looks like they just don't have them up on demand yet.

I think the skaters, coaches and local club officials like it this way. Let them skate for it, rather than leave it up to "executive discretion."

I didn't realize that the eating disorder had such an effect on her career. I loved watching her. Another program that she delivered beautifully was her "Die Fledermaus" skate. The frothy music of Johann Strauss perfectly suited her deft artistry.
