    I don't like her skating, and have stated why. No hating from me. Just as others have stated their dislike for Gracie's skating, I have stated mine for Julia.

    The world would be a sad place if we all liked the same things, difference of opinion is healthy, especially when doled out in good measure, just like medicine.

    And on that note here's hoping Adelina kicks Julia's booty big time in the LP!!!!

    Gracie was put on the Reserve team when she was assigned to a JGP event in fall 2011. When she won that event, she was placed into Team C and receives funding for the rest of the season. I believe that's how it works--it's clearly stated somewhere on the USFSA website, maybe the Team Envelope criteria.

    Lipnitskaya has more transitions.

    "Julia is definitely no Sasha Cohen,"

    No she isn't. She is better almost in every aspect.

    Of course she wasn't practicing it that often - she was preparing for JGP, then Mids, then Nationals, then JWs and it's not in her program. I am guessing when she's back from JWs, she's working on it diligently. The ones I've seen don't LOOK scary...

    I beg to differ, Sasha was & is better than her by far in everything.

    Whether it is stick leg up or not, it is a transition and you know it is. Better than none at all which is pretty much what Gracie has. Sticking your leg up before and/or after a jump is actually kind of difficult if you didn't know. It is probably one of the difficult ones. In the sp, after her first 2A, Julia stands one foot for like two or three seconds which is not that easy after a jump element.
