That was really great from Christina. I would like to see a clean skate from her one of these days though. But neeeeearly perfect until the very end. And she looked beautiful. I can't wait to see what she'll look like next year at 17.
Another GORGEOUS debut by Christina Gao; it will be a rivalry between her & Agnes here & now, the rivalry has begun; the princess vs. the amulgamtion (hard to classify Agnes, she's like everything rolled into one; power/magesty/tall/lean/etc. etc. etc.).
I LOVE both of these kids. FINALLY, the USA is back!!!!!! Two ladies with the goods to blow the world away at the very top. Ahhhh, I can't wait, lol cannot even concentrate on anybody else but these two....dreams of gold....dreams of gold.
Alyssa is next. I don't know if I'm gonna survive the next five minutes...
Alissa is soooo pretty! Even w/ little make-up...
OK, nail biting time.
Alissa's skating is just so light and airy, it's great. Like I said before, she has an ethereal quality to it. And her dress flows really nicely (though I have to imagine that extra fabric at the bottom wrapping around her leg like it keeps doing is a bit annoying to her)
And as I'm typing this, nice save on that jump (the one where she landed and almost fell but squatted really low and saved herself)
Landed everything! Save on the 3L, two lutz combinations, and a 3-jump combination to add on with what she already has..
Alissa Czisny - 2nd after SP - OMG I'm shaking so much right now!
I just love her opening skating sequence - so lovely.
3toe/2toe/2loop (OMG I AM SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW)
gorgeous spins as usual
3loop (wild landing, almost sat down on the ice, but held on - might have been under-rotated)
beautiful combination spin
beautiful layback spin into bielmann - so fast, centered, beautiful!
I am so happy right now! Please make the worlds team Alissa! She seriously can medal at Worlds if she's on!

I do not like Alissa's dress at all, I hate it when the skirt is short on one side and longer on the other.
Agnes was amazing she is going to be a serious contender for Sochi, she has the full package!!!!
The speed on those spins!
