    Just watched it too seems to me like she loses focus for one element, falls/almost falls then rushes her timing on the other elements and it gets messy the twizzles being a prime example considering she has plenty of stamina its sad but next year she'll be ready and most likely she'll come back like Mao did after last year. Also a medalling in every event this year is pretty good in my opinion

Maybe I'm thinking this over too much and she was nervous or forgot. But it was kind of disrespectful.
    It was probably just nerves, considering her lack of international competition experience. Gracie doesn't seem like the diva type - quite the opposite, actually. I'm sure she didn't mean any disrespect.

    Sorry if I missed it, but did anyone respond to the q of what happened to Risa Shoji? Her score was appalling and I didn't think her skate was that bad. She fell going into one of her triples (not on the actual jump) once and singled all the second and third jumps in her combinations. I've seen worse meltdowns that scored better.

    Maybe she underrotated quite a lot? She's done that before.

    That's exactly what killed her score: Popping all those 2nd and 3rd jumps (one of those single toeloops was actually supposed to be a triple toeloop), doubling a 3S attempt, and then falling on another salchow attempt without getting a single rotation. The only thing more costly than a singled jump, or a fall on a popped jump, is a fall on the jump attempt without getting any rotation at all. 0 points in base value and then a 1 point deduction.

    Yes... but then her PCS all tanking? IDK, it seemed a bit like overkill.

    DianaSelene, you're right, she got an UR call on her 3T as well, I hadn't noticed that. So she only had 2 triples, an S and a T.

    I didn't bring up jumps or consistency so I didn't need it to be explained to me. Go back and re-read my posts.

    Risa is a beautiful skater;very lyrical, nice flow and rise and fall of the knees and a great long program so i do agree with you there

    That was mentioned by bekalc and I used it to answer your posts. I know what you said. I do not need to read it again.

    Seriously, I know of only one person that was born on the same day & same year as me (i.e. my late father's best friend's daughter). I recall how in awe her mother was when she found out because we were the best of friends, both social workers, and she said "ahh, that's why, that's why".
    I think its always really cool to find someone so similar to yourself the fact that i love her skating is icing on the cake

    As for Julia if people want to doubt her star quality, may I point out that reports are Julia got a Standing Ovation-apparently the only standing ovation of the entire competition. That girl has literally it all-if she can withstand puberty.

    She also got a standing ovation in Quebec which is located far from Belarus or Russia.

    Exactly. But there were other young Russians that skated well-the Junior World Dance team didn't get a SO it seems. She is special.

    Skating in the 2nd warmup didn't help and she looked very distracted during her skate. It would appear she's either injured or having some equipment problems. She's been hot and cold this season, but even at JGPF and YOG where she "bombed", her scores were much higher than here. I think something must be wrong. Puberty might have something to do with it but from the video she did not appear to have gained a lot of weight or shot up drastically since the fall when she was skating quite well. Hope this was a fluke and she comes back strong next season.
