Thanks for posting this skate of Kate! I enjoyed it very much. I must say I am not currently a Phaneuf fan (though I was when she was younger) nor of Amelie, thouugh that could change. I was a J Ro fan from the first skate I saw and think she is the best lady Canada has produced and it will be very hard to replace her. I wish we could have seen her olympic skates with her mom there. She was incredible anyway. I loved her skating, and have to go back to Josee to name a lady I liked a lot, who was not a good competitor. But she was a lovely skater. I wish she got to do her 94 skate when she was supposed to at Olympics. It is nice she was featured in shows, so I enjoyed the pro Josee. I really don't expect to see Joannie back, but I hope I am wrong on this.
How old is Kate? Who does she coach with, etc? I am not good at counting jumps, tallying points, but she seems to skate with elegance and polish. I can see she needs to improve her basic skating skills, her edges and thus improve speed. It was nice to see a falling leaf.
Seriously, with a list of great canadian men, it does seem like ladies in Canada would have produced more champions. It is odd. But I guess one country can't have it all.
