    Ladies short is after Ice Dance programs. You might want to check the Short Dance thread to see if someone found it. Good luck!

    I'll be doing a live play by play over at http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/...t-program.html. I'm excited to see Sotnikova's debut!

    Goooo Adelina, she's not the second coming of Oksana Baiul, but what I have seen so far of her on youtube this past year has been great!

    She's got the technique, jumps, height, et al (per usual for the Russians), and she's creative ~ loved her new version of "Bolero". At first I didn't, but upon second showing I said "yes"!

    Still, I hope she grows as a performer. So sad about this, never understood why the Russian ladies weren't good when it came to choreography, interpretation, et al. After all they come from the land of the Czars, culture, history, ballet, the arts.

    Here's hoping Adelina wins her senior debut, just as Elizaveta did!

    Here is the link to my LIVE commentary for anybody who'd like to follow along http://backstagebarbie.blogspot.com/...kating_04.html It will certainly be age vs. experience as Kostner, Sotnikova, Nagasu, Murakami, and Gao battle for medals!

    The warmup group is on the ice and includes Sotnikova and Christina Gao in their GP debuts!

    Just like last year the Chinese feed leaves a lot to be desired, as well as their audio. Still, I'm grateful for anything, and do appreciate IN, though I do find them North American centric.

    Adelina totally dominates practice, as it should be, she reminds me of a young colt.

    Btw one of the Chinese girls looks just like Madison Chock, but I'm not surprised seeing as Madison is half Chinese.

    Warmup almost over. Will wait until Adelina skates...

    Well USFS is way close to IN-AFAIR, they contracted with major league baseball to create IN. USFS doesn't even do their own skater bios any more; they're just on IN. Not surprising they'd be US centric.

    Wow, COC is honestly packed to the rafters, what a great turnout for the ladies!

    I really enjoyed this lovely routine by Zhang, only fault the hand down on a triple, but the 3/3 was lovely to see.

    If they keep going like this I see China being a super power in ladies as well.

    I'm nervous for Adelina. It's hard for me watch her looking so scared like that. In the warm up she was taking big gulps of air and looked pale. I hope everything goes well for her, the pressure must be enormous for a 15 year old
