Kutien, Thank you for the link!
In a hurry, so just a short one on Ladies Short Program:
Deedee's MVP goes to Carolina and Akiko!
They were simply above the rest of the field: Superior skating skills, confidence in jumps, their abiity to sell a program and draw us in. They made the audience forget we were actually watching the competition.
Both got loudest applause and standing ovations from ALL of us, who were there last night; audience, skaters, coaches, ISU people and others.
Kanako was great, too. Sorry about Alena. A fever after Worlds must have affected her. She did not have her norm spark and energy.
Honory mention by deedee: Adelina!!!
What surprised me the most with her skating is she skates BIG. I loved that.
Liked Gracy, too. She has the goods: text-book jumps, good spins, beautiful posture and lines. She does have a potential, but she NEEDS a better music and program to go with...
I have gotta go now. See ya all!
Carolina has become a goddess on the ice within 2 years. Incredible, beautiful, classy and sophisticated. She looked like a supermodel - swan on the ice! She gets bonus points for that surely for the PCS!
