    Wow, nice senior debut for McKinzie Daniels. Beautiful 3Lo-2T to start. Great flying sit. She has a gracious quality, nice line.

    Yeah I completely agree.

    Great for Czisny!!!!!!!!!! Do you think there's still room for Wagner, Zhang? Perhaps Flatt?

    she's still smiling, but you know she's shocked about the 2A

    first place!!

    wow!!! a gift!! wonder how the waxel was scored - and everything else for that matter....
    Frankly I don't think this is the miracle you seem to think it is.

    Without looking at the protocols I can tell you that what happened is that she deservedly got straight +3GOEs with an occasional +2 thrown in for the spins and the footwork. The PCS were obviously high, also deservedly. She probably got +1 and +2 GOES on the jumps that were not the axle and there you go. As for the single I think someone else already said this but it was obviously a fluke thing- her edge caught which is why she looked a bit surprised.

    Overall I thought she did fantastically and that her score was deserved.

    I was thinking the same. I think she totally deserved her score.

    Beautiful performance from newcomer Nina Jang! Finally, someone that dares to be different, jazzy, sensual even program. Stands out from the rest. She actually reminds me of that actress from the movie "The Joy Luck Club", very pretty. I would put her in 3rd, and even higher up if she were an old warhorse on the scene, lol.

    Mirai, you better watch out, here's your understudy to take over the top position, no joke.

    Nina Jiang was wonderful! Her program is obviously inspired by Yu Na's Bond but she made it her own. It was a totally integrated performance and she did everything well and with elegance, even sexiness.

    Nice performance, but nevertheless nothing special, would put her in the middle of the pack.

    Got Nina's placing right, will see if I'm right about Joelle as well.

    ps: Nina's a one-of-a-kind, I see a star in the making, she's like nobody else.

    Oops, Joelle finished 7th out of 8, so no middle of the pack. :(

    OK, I agree with your assessment. Everything else was done beautifully & of high quality. It was just my gut reaction after the waxel. Looks like that she was pleased with her performance & I'm confident she will skate a great long. Looking to Worlds, however, that cannot happen.

    Nice jazzy performance by Angela Wang, just that very unusual fall on the 3F, odd really, she landed it, then held the edge for a long time before tipping over.

    Coincidence or not, but it was great how they played Eminem right when Alissa was warming up, (he's originates from Detroit, and she took part in that Detroit/Chrysler/Eminem commercial). Just thought it was interesting and it reminded me of how in the NBA, the home team (I think) has their own music/mix played during their warm-up to 'pump them up' before the game

    Back from a bathroom break, and with 10 more skaters to go, zzzzzzzz.....

    They're re-icing the surface, then will come the 5 minute warmup, finally BAM! At least I hope so, show us what you got, please not the same ole same ole.
