    Anyhow, nice to see the American Ladies did just as well as the American Men did last night. The men were 4-5-7, and now the women are 3-4-6. But most importantly both earned 3 spots for next year. Here's hoping the Seniors complete the same task at Worlds! (:^)

    Btw, I glanced at their Sps yesterday and imho Agnes Zawadzki is the only one that has gone through puberty completely. She looks out of place out there with the juniors. Here's hoping she's done with jrs. for good and can competes solely in the sr. division next year! *cheers*
    Just because Agnes doesn't have a little 14 yr old body, doesn't mean she's out of place in Jrs. She's only 16 for goodness sake.

    No, she lost SP at Russian Nationals to Ksenia Makarova.

    Congratulations to Adelina, Liza and Agnes. Glad Agnes had a great skate and moved up to medal.

    I believe the US gets 3 spots in all disciplines next season. YAY!

    Liza has overall more content in her programs but based on this if both are clean Adelina will probably win. If Adelina makes a mistake Liza definitely has a chance. Adelina will have to add more content and now she knows.

    The silly stream is replaying the top 3... Agnes was smiling through the last minute of that program! Such a nice moment for her. I can't believe how well Adelina does that 3Lz-3Lo! But I'm surprised she's not getting an edge call on the 3Lz.

    I was impressed by this event overall. Miyabi Oba, who dropped to 8th, was actually quite good today, I thought. Lots of talent in this field.

    I believe she has more content than the senior ladies, 7 triples, 3Lz-3L, 2A-3T, so that's not the problem. But she doesn't do a 3 jump combo and has only 2 jumping passes in the second half oh her program. She and her team will probably change that next season and maximise every point. Maybe the key was for her to be constant and clean, to feel comfortable with her jumps this way( she is frontloading her jumps and doesn't have many transitions).I'm sure next season will be a different story

    I would love to see Adelina or Liza go clean. I would put Adelina first because she has better overall skating skills and present on the ice. She just has that 'it' factor but I wonder what the judges would do.

    I never realized that Adelina doesn't do more combos and she still kicks but.

    Adelina's 3 jump combo is the 3S+2T+2Lo. But I guess for some reason she didn't do it here. She did it at Russian Nats.

    At 16 yrs. old Oksana Baiul & Sarah Hughes were Olympic Champions. Yes, I know all about the rule changes, but my point is it's time to move on up to the elite division!

    She did well in Jrs., a silver & a bronze, even Oksana Baiul never earned a medal in Jrs. (lol that's because she never competed in that division). And Sarah Hughes can only boast of a silver at Jr. Worlds. So Agnes is in good company.

    She'll fit in nicely in Seniors. She already looks like a senior skater, a lady, now she just needs the right programs! Lol in fact if I didn't know any better I would've thought she came from Texas, where they grow them tall & long-legged. :D

    And not to forget Christina Gao, she too impresses me, has since I saw her & Agnes skate at US Nationals in January. Time for her too to compete solely in Srs. imho.

    These two are the future faces of American Ladies Skating imho ~ Audrey Hepburn & Jerry Hall ~ with Gidget, Alyssa Milano, and Sunshine completing the quintet!

    I watched the jrgpf final and she didn't do it there either. I wonder why she's taken it out.

    Agnes competed on the Senior GP circuit this season and if she had done well, she might have been given the nod for Senior worlds, but she had tendency to mess up her long programs. Juniors is getting crowded anyways, so I agree time to move up.

    Well, there she didn't do it because she fell on the 3S.

    I was curious about this stat, so did a little checking. Looking only at ISU events, Caroline Zhang in 2006-2007, Yu-Na Kim in 2005-2006, and Mao Asada in 2004-2005 also won every single SP and LP in their undefeated seasons.
