    Senior ladies competition

    I hope it's okay if I post a new thread for this ??

    That was an interesting Ladies short! Lots of mistakes, but what else is new with the Candian ladies . I appreciated the variety of music styles and performances from the top group. No ice princesses here! Katelyn Osmond was such a stand-out. Imagine, a clean triple-triple! Wow! I hope she can do as well in the long.

    What are your thoughts?

    Cynthia in fourth and Katelyn Osmond leading? I don't even remember seeing Osmond before in my life! I can't see Cynthia not on the podium though, she'll have to bring it in the free.

    Cynthia lost big on falling on the first jump of the combo. And a hand down on 3Lz. Other than that, she skated beautifully, a league above the others. Good choreography and great presentation, with a regal maturity. Katelyn is exciting and she has no nerves, boding really well for the future of Canadian Ladies. But for now, I think if Cynthia can calm down she can skate like one of the best in the world. I really like what I saw of Cynthia today. I feel it's more of an adrenalin rather than confidence issue. However, it will be tough for her tomorrow since there's only one spot for Worlds.

    Poor Amelie Lacoste had to deal with a loud, ongoing fire alarm sounding off as she was warming up to start her short program.

    I have a feeling Lacoste is going to win the title. I don't see Cynthia coming from that far back, but maybe she'll prove me wrong.

    just saw the recaps from yesterday. Disappointing all around; reminds me of Nationals late nineties.

    Osmond is a delight but she needs Jr Worlds. Cynthia is not completely out; she's only 7 points behind, but her experience and since she has the highest PCS scores, I can see her make 1 mistake and still win it. i don't Amelie winning it at all.

    Honestly, I try to support all the skaters, i mean no disrespect; but we desperately need Joannie back. I hope Skate Canada is talking to her about coming back next season.

    I hope Skate Canada makes Cynthia fight for her title and doesn't just hand it to her. They owe her nothing at this point given that her poor showing at Worlds cost them a spot and her GP showings were a complete disaster. She needs to prove her worth just like every other lady here. If she wins, I hope it is truly justified.

    And if it were up to me, I'd send Osmond to junior worlds.

    I'm glad Amelie won; I just wish she'd done it with a lutz and/or a flip. Oh well. She really does have gorgeous jumps when she lands them.

    It may be that I had low expectations, but this event was better than I thought it would be. There were some solid triple lutzes and triple flips from some of the younger and/or lower-ranked skaters, and of course the surprise of Katelyn Osmond and the improvement she's made. I also liked Alexandra Najarro's style and elegance in her long program.

    Anyone know how they're planning to select the world team? Lacoste and Phaneuf were quite close; I'd personally like to see them face off at 4CC to determine the world team spot.

    Is that in doubt?

    As for LaCoste, basically one spot means that she needs top ten to get back the second spot. She's got three Russian girls, two American, three Japanese, one Finn, and one Italian looking at the top ten. Not to mention some interesting contenders from everywhere else.
