I absolutely agree with you on Mirai's spins! The audience clearly loved her spins full of personality that used the accents of the music so well.

Miki has one other option to up her point level the 3Z-3L. While she has made strides in her non-jump elements and putting forth consistent programs. We all know that she can do this combo. Her 3Z-2L is so big already, that she could probably add another rotation, and she does it in practice.

I really haven't quite figured out why she took that jump out this year.
I'm probably wasting my breath, but I'd really like her to do this...

I don't know if Rachael can reac the top of the podium at Worlds. I do know--or at least it's my opinion--that she can't do it with her current long program. It's too busy. Rachael needs to stop trying ot act out a part that goes over most of the audience's, and the judges', heads. She should pick a beautiful piece of music that is cut well and just skate. She has developed a nice Ina Bauer and spread eagle that she can capitalize on. She is a consistent jumper and if she can land her jumps cleanly and avoid under-rotations, it will carry her pretty far, maybe not to a gold medal but perhaps to the podium (especially if Yu Na retires).

Well, under COP doing 3+3 will not going to give her any more points advantage, unless she is going for 8 triples jump. Her current jumps layout is really good, maximize the point. She can add the 3T behind 3F+3T like in 08 seson, but i think she should wait until her Flip is rock solid. As long as she nail the 3A and 2A+3T wo <, n the rest of the jumps she should score huge TES, more than either Miki or Yuna. She def has at least one < jump wiggle room over Miki so.

I don't think that is what's being said. I also think that Nationals shouldn't be the only deciding factor. Other countries look at their own Nationals and Europeans for team selections. That's all.
