    Only reason this girl got sent to Worlds was because Korpi and Lepisto were hurt. Somehow i don't think the US needs the Finns to tell them how to compete. If we did send one of the younger girls i would hope it was Gold quite frankly. I think she has the mental makeup to compete.

    Agnes fell all over the place at Nationals and 4CC. I'm not sure if sending her to Worlds would have done any good.

    Actually, the U.S. may have had a better shot if they had sent Caroline Zhang. She was fantastic at Nationals and 4CC. Too bad she was fourth at Nationals and didn't have a chance to be sent.

    This skater from the UKR reminds me of Nicole Watt of Canada from years ago, same style, same body shape, facial similarity, but especially the same exact way they wear their tights.

    Here's hoping wherever Nicole is today she's doing fine as she had a rare type of chronic juvenile arthritis condition, which eventually made her stop skating. Such an angel, so sad. :(

    You guys may be right but you're missing my point. I'm not talking about who would win spots and medals now but investing in someone for the future--a different strategy, thinking long-term instead of short-term when we don't have a dominant lady.

    And yeah, Finland sent this girl because others were injured... but according to some, Alissa is injured... and then there was Rachael. I don't think it's so silly to suggest sending a healthy youngster over an injured and/or super-inconsistent veteran.

    I have understood that the US Federation did not know that Rachael was injured.

    My apologies for blowing up earlier, though the sentiment is the same, the delivery could have been better. Still, I was really angry/frustrated/PO'ed. And when I'm angry the truth comes out, no matter how harsh.

    That said, I've had visions (or hopes more like) of Ashley Wagner skating a clean Black Swan program, which could be her signature piece, as it captures imho who she is as both a skater and a person. The best type of signature piece.

    And Alissa I just feel sad for now.

    One more thing, I agreed with Spun as regards Agnes because she needs the experience, and she did after all win the SP at Nationals with huge correctly rotated jumps and lots of pizzazz (she's kinda like Gracie Gold two, just not as consistent, yet). And since she was the 1st alternate I was all for her going if Alissa was injured and withdrew. But that's all water under the bridge now. Like I said last week or the week before "those that do not learn from history are damned to repeat it."

    I just noticed Ashley skating position, she might pull a V/T + Hanyu and be on podium.
