it looks like the same person uploaded both caroline and ashley, because that person is an ashley fan. thank heavens for Jsport in HD without commentary and kind uploaders and helpful vid finders :D

Rooting for the divas with Kwanford
I would only recommend sending GG if she goes to 4CC and has 2 great skates there, and if no one else steps up tomorrow in the FP in San Jose, and if there's no rule forbidding sending the junior champ. (I don't remember, but I think the rules give the USFSA some discretion in the choice of whom to send.) In which case she would have senior international experience. At 16 this could be her prime as a skater. (I'm not saying it is, but it could be. Remember Kimmie. And people are still talking about Mao having missed her best chance at Olympic gold because of the age rule.) In which case there would be regrets later if we don't send her.
Do the skaters and technical specialists here have reasons for judging that this is NOT her peak year? (Genuine question - I wouldn't know the answer.)

Tripping on the Podium
it not only freezes for live events, but also when they post them on IN. its SO annoying and irritating. i'm probably going to email them about it.

i disagree with 4CC as a method of selecting world team members, because i don't want a best 2 out of 3 deciding who goes--it should be a test of who can handle the pressure of one competition to decide it all IMO. what is a better test of someone's competitive mettle--a competition to decide it all, single elimination, or a series of competitions all counting a little toward the total? you want tough competitors, put them through a tough test.

if you must use 4CC to decide the world team, shouldn't gold at least earn a chance to go to 4CC by competing against the other senior ladies who are vying for the world team? look at the hot disputes in japan and canada about the make up of 4CC teams--if it's become a competition of such great importance, then shouldn't one earn the right to go there, not just be annointed at the expense of somebody else who wants to go to 4CC?

That is why I gave up on IN. I did not subscribe this season. Some folks have no problem, unfortunately I was not one of them.
