Here is my strange reason why I have always liked Alyssa: Back in the day, it really ticked me off how many skaters did a straight line approach to the triple lutz, flutzed it and got credit. Alyssa has always done a triple lutz the old fashioned way, on a LBO curve. Much harder. Once I asked her if this bothered her (that others were getting credit for a triple lutz, when they were not doing a triple lutz). She shrugged, and said, yes, sometimes.

McCorkell score: 75.77, total 121.76 and into 6th
Cheltzie Lee is skating to Yentl, so let's hope she channels Barbra.
I hope the snooker players can play faster on EuroSport.... despite them playing an intense game for days now, so many safety shots :D
Back in the day, Alissa always fell on or underrotated her lutz, so it didn't really matter whether she was on the outside edge or not.

2Lz - stepout, attempt on 3Lz?
2A - hand down
Score: 85.45, new SB, total 133.65 and into 4th
Elene G. starting out on the attack, two good jump passes then a fall on the 3rd. Now right back into it. She's looking strong. Powerful music, powerful skater. Not perfect or clean, but this could move her up the standings a bit.
I like her costume--it does a good job of keeping her horizontal assets under control and not a distraction. But I prefer her as a brunette.

3Lz - nice one!
3T - crooked in air, falls
2A+2T+2T - nice back spiral entrance
3S - puts foot down
Good effort except for the fall.
despite the fall, great program from Elene, she's on the right track now and Morozov in these few weeks already started a good job IMO
yeah, this costume is really better

Her second 3Lz was soooo huge! Nice to see her skating well
Personal Best for Elene! I'm happy for her!
Such a great skate from Elene, she's got her speed back and scored over 100 in the FS.
