    Cheers to ALL the American Ladies and Super Mao!

    ps: I checked out the practice thread and read about Mao's new dress, but didn't click on the link b/c I want to be surprised.

    All right, there they are!

    5 minutes of warmup and then they start.

    I see the powerful French skater is in this group (recall her power jumps from last year).

    And there's Agnes, another powerful jumper. And of course the lovely Ashley Wagner.

    Elene's such a powerful jumper, that's the one thing that stood out to me last year at SA when I was sitting in the front row watching everybody up front & live, Elene's beautiful powerful jumps. So glad she changed back to her beautiful natural brunette color.

    Didn't get a good look at Agnes, just a glimpse from afar, not sure if I like the brunette hair on her. Isn't she a natural mousy blonde?

    Gee, I wonder if it is me or IN, but the skaters seemed to be skating slow tonight, even most of the pairs. Hmmm...

    Anyhow, too bad about the singled 2A, but everything else landed.

    Good job by the Japanese lady.

    ps: then again I recall watching one of my faves, Carolina Kostner, at SA live last year, and honest to God she was not as fast as I expected. Everybody on the boards goes on & on & on ad infinitum about how fast she is, but as God is my witness in the LP she didn't seem fast at all. About the same speed as Rachael Flatt last year. jmho.

    She had a mini meltdown last year in SA, so don't judge her speed only for that program. I remember the british eurosport guys saying in 2008 worlds SP that she was flying across the ice and did the 3F-3T combo very close to where they were staying and joked about how if something went wrong with the combo they could be in danger.

    Darn, I was expecting to be blow away by Agnes, especially seeing has she's got Tonya Harding's legs to a T (identical in fact, just more elongated). But she's not packaged right at all imho; she needs powerful music to fit her powerful style of skating, and the brunette hair has to go, et al.

    Still, I love the 3/3 combo. (jump a minor step out) is all.

    Good job!

    Now that is a power skater (best out of the bunch; love her 3/3 combo.)!

    But everything else leaves a lot to be desired -- bulky legs, bulky style, tights over the boots (bleh), etc.

    Her TES should be high though, especially seeing as how Agnes almost sat down on her 3F jump. :(
