Although I feel her score was inflated, her program was beautiful and very mature for a novice. LOVE HER LAYBACK. anyone else watch?
Her layback was incredible!

any vids of this incredible layback? what was incredible about it--speed, position? are we talking angela nikodinov 2.0? ^^ otherwise i'll make do with caroline zhang and ashley wagner.
Position and speed. It started in the classic style, with a nice turned out leg, then was pulled up into a great Bielman without an awkward transition in between. (sorry I'm not very good at giving descriptions)

I just can't get into watching a 4 foot 12 year old skater like Karen chen. Sure she's a fireball but she's got about 3-4 years of growing to do. No use in guessing what kind of skater she will eventually be since puberty could and probably will change everything.
