LOL what a ridiculous score. A true joke.
No, it looks like Mirai's UR jumps killed her chances again. Rachael is helped by the fact that she fully rotates her jumps better than Nagasu.
Rachel wouldn't get that score internationally with that skate. She would barely get 110. Sorry Mirai...you got played imo.
Scott & Sandra were sending negative vibes throughout the performance. These two I just don't like. Give me back IN please, where there is no commentary.
Scott you didn't deserve Olympic Gold, Brian Orser did, you fell & splatted, the worst performance of a men's Olympic Gold Medalist.
GO CZISNY!!!!! Congratulations to Flatt for the fight (didn't see any performances, paying attention here).
I knew Czisny would have her Wylie moment this season, and it's coming to life. Fantastic.
Congrats to Czisny. Ugh to Flatt. Ugh, ugh, ugh.
Alissa skated very well. Mirai did well also, a few mistakes which did not wreck the program. None of the programs were flawless. Rachael's program was not great. I would never have placed her ahead of Nagasu. Ashley skated very well also. Frank was right on both counts: Mirai is the greatest skater in the world and she did give it away. It was hers to win. When she is on, she has no equal.
Congratulations, Alissa! Another US title!
If Ryan Bradley wins the men's title, that would be awesome. Two skaters who were considering retirement, then coming back to win titles, just shows you how amazing these skaters are.
Guess the USFSA decided not to risk two headcases at worlds...
So happy for Alissa's win! And I am glad Flatt pulled out second, although it wasn't in the typical strong way she does it. But I trust her more than some of the others to deliver a solid performance.
I wouldn't be surprised if Alissa and Rachael both retire/move on after this season. Nagasu, Zawadski, Gao, Lam will continue. The question is: Whither Ashley?
Yay for Alissa! Now, if she can just absorb those serene vibes from Jason and Yuka for Worlds as well....
