    Not yet. The announcements for the 4CC Team and World Team I believe will be after the final competition which is the Men.

    ETA: I was wrong just found this in the U.S.Ladies Nationals thread.

    I loved her skate last night too! I was hoping she'd land in third. Pretty clean program!

    OMG.... I was so proud and Happy for Caroline. I actully shed a few tears after her SP because it was so joyous and triumphant. When she made her 1st mistake in her Free skate, I started to worry but saw her expression change into 'competition mode' as she pulled herself together to move on past the bobble. It was great to see her smiling again!

    I do agree that her choreography needed work, but it was a fine start to a comeback after working her techniques for the last few years.

    Congratulations to Caroline!!!!

    What was the triple loop/triple loop worth? I am no scoring expert, but I enjoyed the whole two programs and wish she had won bronze as well.

    She's going to 4CC? That's super! And kudos to Karen Kwan and Peter Oppegard for helping her undo and then redo her technique.

    I'm so happy that she's going to 4 Continents.

    Also, I really loved her 3 loop 3 loop combo, and I hope she tries it again in Colorado.

    Per twitter from an audience member in San Jose-- Caroline's exhibition is 'Defying Gravity' (from Wicked...not sure if its the broadway or Glee version)! How perfect for her journey. SO looking forward to seeing this, I can just imagine how wonderful it was.

    ^^ I could be wrong, but I think the base value of that 3-3 combo is a 10.20.

    Congratulations to Zhang. She lost about 10 lbs from when I saw her last August and really worked hard to correct her jumping technique.

    Caroline's performances at Nationals show that she is on the right track. However, what does she need to score even higher? What should she be working on to improve her scores? Should she focus on her stroking/edges/speed or perhaps work on her spins to get higher levels? Does she need to add new jumps to her arsenal such as the triple salchow? Should her new LP be choreographed differently to be more pleasing to the judges?

    Of course, the other possibility is that she has reached her peak and no improvement is needed. But I doubt that many here would agree that she has reached perfection.
