see patrick chan scores, for falling and still getting high pcs scores, for trying.
i realize he has more artistry=but when started out not, now being overly hyped his pc are too high, but notice his jumps sometimes arent so great.
for me caroline zhang has a good a shot as anyone. mirai, rachel, christina, agnes etc. didn't have great technique still is up there.
so why not let her try in practice, the coaches and her will determine the best course of action regarding the 3a.
she has improved in speed, height of jumps-maybe many posters haven't noticed but she has.
yes, caroline can get up on podium again and get up there, mirai, rachel etc got up with bad technqiue when first jumped up and stayed up with not so great jumps and etc.-=why hyped up pc scores when shouldn't have. but another story.
jumps 3a she should try in practice, let her and coaches decide whether to put in competition --not for you and me to decide and debate otherwise i would debate some othe jumps, technique for the other skaters who shouldn't have put it in the competition and high pcs for not so good (artistry)

In the latest Inside Edge article on Icenetwork, Caroline is mentioned to have also been in Toronto for choreography with David Wilson. I'm excited to know what her programs will be! I think of Dickson, Nichol and Wilson I like Wilson for Caroline best. Rushing Wing's of Dawn flowed amazingly.
Also, is it too early to start the upcoming season's Caroline thread? I figured after Team Trophy if no one does, I shall..
She's going to Wilson? Great news.
This is one skater whose progress we can actually see--increased speed, more solid jumps. Add that to her steady nerves (head case was never her problem, as far as I can tell), and I have great hopes for her this season. I vote yes for you to start a Caroline thread as soon as you deem it suitable.
I think the US should have honoured with an offer to skate at the World Team. It would be good to test her out anyways.

There is a long discussion on this subject over at FSUniverse. Apparently, the USFSA asked several girls to be on the team, including Agnes and Caroline. They appear to have even asked Alissa. We don't know in what order they were asked.
We only know for sure that Czisny was asked (it was mentioned in a Detroit Free Press article). We don't know how many others were asked (if any) before they got to Gold.
I wonder whether some of these supposed calls from the USFSA were just inquiries about a skater's availability, rather than actual offers for the WTT.
