    Karen Chen wins novice ladies short

    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!

    All of the young ladies did a good job. I had fun watching that.

    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.
