    Frank's said before that she does better when she's with her ballet coach so they started having her stand by the boards and she took Mirai to 4CC last year.

    Yes. I'm sure all is well with Mirai and Frank.

    REALLY crossing my fingers for her.

    The ice is wet, probably soft - one girl fell in warmup and her butt and leg are all wet. Hope it doesn't mess people up.

    I just want a great competition is all; the very best being the 2008 US Nationals where everybody skated their best and Mirai won.

    Seriously though I'm disappointed in ladies overall, not just local/national, but the world. I want to see ladies pushing the envelope in the same way that the men are!

    BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!

    Nadine, I can sense your excitement. Hopefully, you'll also share your views of who really brought it on.

    Yasmin's music is Sarah Hughes, she owns it imho. And the costume she's wearing brings to mind Oksana Baiul's, likewise Katia Gordeeva's ~ "Meditation from Thais".

    Yasmin Siraj - Ravel's Daphne & Chloe

    didn't catch all the elements, but she fell on the triple lutz (solo jump). nice double axel at the end

    She also had a 3t-2t and a very nice traditional layback. I really liked her transitions.

    Mirai looks out of shape; both she & Rachael Flatt need to take a cue from Alissa Czisny, which I've been saying all season long.

    But she made this music come alive to the best of her ability; beautiful gorgeous 3L/2T, but the 3 turns into the 3R was not good, but at least she held on, and the 2A was equally huge!

    Good job, not great.

    Mirai Nagasu - Tango

    three turns into triple loop - had to fight for landing, but didn't fall
    triple lutz/double toe - nice
    double axel - also nice
    layback - gorgeous
    arabians into flying camel
    footwork
    combo spin

    she smiled, then you could tell she's mad at herself about the loop. On the replay, Tonia says it went up fine but then it looks like she dropped her right side

    I actually think she looks like she's in pretty good shape. She I think could have made it 'come alive' a bit more actually, but she was ALL intensity... she was determined I think to nail it and she basically did other than that first triple loop. She REALLY hung on and then killed the other jumps- I was proud of her.

    I do think she could have done it better but overall I am way pleased.

    Good job by Haley Dunne, just the obvious UR on the 3T/3T combo. at the beginning, otherwise a great sr. debut!
